Alibaba Quantum Laboratory (AQL)-Quantum Computer Architect-Hangzhou
AQL's mission is to realize the revolutionary potentials of quantum computing. Our interdisciplinary and international expert team is based in Hangzhou, China and Bellevue (WA), USA. English is AQL's sole working language.
We are a full stack R&D program with an emphasis on building hardware and systems of superconducting quantum computers. Outstanding candidates from all central areas of quantum computing are welcome to apply. Currently, priorities will be given to device-level theory and simulation, error-correction, quantum computer architecture, and experimental solid-state physics. Our hardware laboratory in Hangzhou includes a dedicated cleanroom.
AQL is proud to be a founding laboratory of DAMO Academy, Alibaba's global research institution.
Quantum Computer Architecture is an exciting emerging discipline on the layer between quantum programs and elementary quantum computing devices. The goal here is to control the quantum devices to optimize key performance factors such as precision, efficiency, scalability, reliability, portability, etc. While many concepts from classical computer architecture such as microarchitecture, instruction set, etc., will continue to be useful, the many new challenges will inspire new concepts and techniques. As a Quantum Computer Architect, you will work with teammates with expertise spanning device physics to classical computer architecture and compilers, and our superconducting quantum processor team, to distill key solution concepts for quantum computer architecture, prototype and implement such solutions in a superconducting quantum computer. This position is based in Hangzhou.
• Ph.D. degree with a focus on computer architecture, or a strong record in industrial computer architecture R&D.
• Passionate about building a quantum computer; prior experiences on superconducting quantum computing are desirable but not required.
