Site Sorbonne Université - LIP6

The Quantum Information (QI) team in LIP6, Sorbonne Université, is looking for a post doctoral researcher in Quantum Machine Learning.

The QI team is an interdisciplinary research group covering computer science, theoretical physics and experimental quantum optics. We are based in LIP6, Sorbonne Université, in central Paris, and are founding members of interdisciplinary centres the Quantum Information Centre Sorbonne and the Paris Centre for Quantum Technologies. We are involved in many regional, national and international initiatives in quantum information, including several EU flagship projects. We strive to promote equality, diversity, inclusion and tolerance.

More information on the posts and on the QI team, and the work we do can be found qi.lip6.fr

Applicants should send their CV, a cover letter and arrange for at least two references to be sent to qi@lip6.fr

All successful candidates will be expected to manage their own research, contribute to the working life of the team, and they will also have the opportunity to help supervise students and teach.

The position is initially for 12 months, renewable for up to 24 months, with a flexible start date.

The deadline for the first round of applications is 30/06/2024, and the second round of application is 31/08/2024.

Quantum Machine Learning

One theoretical post-doc in quantum machine learning, with probable experience in the field, or in adjacent areas such as quantum algorithms or classical machine learning. Our group focuses on theoretical aspects of QML: from measures of expressibility, barren plateaus and other concentration, definition of quantum advantage through classical approximability, and trade-off between these phenomena. Our goal is to find the list of conditions under which a quantum advantage in QML is still plausible. We are also interested in mitigating known caveats, through Subspace preserving QML. More generally, we are interested in anything QML, without limits, including implementation with photonic quantum computers, and more applied work.
