We offer a two-year postdoctoral position as part of a joint research project between QuSoft and TOYOTA, that is exploring the possibilities of quantum computing in research and development use cases, in particular quantum optimization as part of machine learning workflows.
You will be employed at the Institute for Informatics (IvI) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA), and you will be a member of QuSoft, the Dutch research institute for quantum software.
What are you going to do
The project is a scientific exploration of the possibilities of speeding up the solving of optimization problems, especially those related to primitives in machine learning. This will be done in collaboration with domain experts from TOYOTA, who will contribute real-world use cases and data. Your research will encompass several aspects of this question, and will encompass:
The project will be supervised by:
