Physicist, Computer Scientist, Mathematician or similar (f/m/x)


Within DLR's Quantum Computing Initiative the Institute of Data Science starts a cooperation project with industry to study the potential of hybrid Quantum-High-Performance-Computing for a selected industry-relevant use case. The concrete goal is to develop, apply und evaluate a hybrid algorithm that combines elements of classical high-performance-computing and machine learning with so-called "quantum machine learning" for the purpose of anomaly detection and in combination with causal inference. To this end the project will also establish a hybrid computing infrastructure that combines classical computers with quantum computers or simulators.

For this project we are searching for a candidate with experience in high-performance-computing and experience or interest in quantum computing and machine learning. Considering the growing importance and enormous potential of quantum computing, this position offers an exceptional opportunity for qualification. In addition, the industry collaboration will give the opportunity to build a valuable network.

Your tasks include:

  • literature review to follow the developments within the fields of quantum computing and high-performance-data-analytics (HPDA)
  • implementation and scaling of an existing data analysis pipeline for anomaly detection in a classical HPDA-environment
  • implementation of a hybrid quantum computing infrastructure by using appropriate software interfaces
  • development, implementation and evaluation of hybrid algorithms for anomaly detection in telemetry data
  • collaboration and coordination with other project members
  • Master in physics, computer science, mathematics or a related field of study
  • multiyear experience in independent and autonomous work on complex research tasks
  • proven practical experience in the field of high performance computing (HPC)
  • good knowledge of software development in Python and C++
  • fluency in written and oral English
  • interest to work within an industry collaboration
  • willingness to approve a security check according to SÜG
  • special knowledge in the administration of HPC-systems desirable
  • special knowledge and multiyear working experience in the field of quantum computing desirable
  • special knowledge in the fields of machine learning and data analytics desirable
  • strong communication skills desirable
  • PhD in physics, computer science, mathematics or a related field desirable
  • fluency in written and oral German is a plus

Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalleled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives. Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (f/m/x).Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
