Postdoctoral Research Associate (Quantum Computing)

escription Fermilab's Theoretical Physics Department  http://theory.fnal.gov and the newly launched Fermilab Quantum Science Program https://qis.fnal.gov/  have Postdoctoral Research Associate openings in the area of theoretical quantum information science (QIS). The selected candidate will work at its interface with fundamental physics and quantum field theory. The appointment will be for two (2) years, with the possibility of a one-year extension. Topics of interest include: Quantum simulation of quantum field theories describing strongly coupled systems Quantum algorithm development and quantum simulations for high-energy physics Tensor networks, their utility for simulation and their connections to quantum gravity Applying quantum technologies and quantum sensors to probe fundamental physics Development of quantum algorithms for machine learning and partial differential equations. QIS is a growing research direction at Fermilab. The selected candidate will work in collaboration with a broad group of Fermilab scientists including the members of the Theoretical Physics Department, and members of the Fermilab Quantum Science Program, and possibly get involved in projects with other DOE labs and academic institutions, including industry. The Fermilab Theoretical Physics Department is part of a new collaboration with the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter at Caltech and the Institute for Nuclear Theory at the University of Washington. Fermilab scientists working at the forefront of Computational Physics and Quantum Algorithm Development are part of this initiative.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
