job description

Research will focus on quantum methods for machine learning and applications in finance. In particular, the candidate will develop quantum methods for use cases in finance, e.g. analyzing time series data, solving stochastic differential equations, anomaly and fraud detection, or optimization wallet, using fault-tolerant quantum computers and also NISQ machines. These methods will include machine learning, linear algebra and systems of linear equations, convex optimization, etc.

The candidate will have to work in two fields closely related to the research currently undertaken at the CQT in computer science. The first axis concerns the domain of the complexity of communication. Second, he will collaborate with CQT researchers on quantum machine learning. He is expected to spend up to 1 month in Singapore on a maximum of 2 visits, to complete the project work.

Job requirements

  • PhD in a relevant discipline.
  • The candidate must be a senior researcher in the relevant research fields with more than 10 years of experience.
