If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Research Scientist, Quantum Implementations

Quantinuum is looking for a talented research scientist to join a highly interdisciplinary (Quantum) Compositional Intelligence research team based in Oxford.

The team's areas of interest are quantum computational linguistics and quantum natural language processing, and more generally compositional models for interpretable AI. The main focus of the role is the implementation of quantum algorithms on simulators and actual quantum hardware.

The successful candidate will participate in the design of experiments, perform resource estimates, error mitigation, and scaling analyses of the experiments. They will be fluent in the theory of quantum computation, with a good research track record, and will have a good grasp of the software libraries enabling the implementation of quantum algorithms on existing quantum computers. As some knowledge of the low level workings of quantum processors is beneficial to this role, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to interact and collaborate with the hardware team at Quantinuum which develops the state-of-the-art ion-trap based quantum computers powered by Honeywell, as well as use quantum processors provided by other partners of Quantinuum, such as IBMQ. Furthermore, they will be using the libraries developed by our quantum software teams in order to interface with the quantum devices, for experiment design, job handling and logging, compilation, error mitigation, and thus they will contribute to the development by providing valuable feedback and by requesting features.

ZX-calculus specialist: theory, applications and software development

Quantinuum is looking for a talented researcher to join the highly interdisciplinary (Quantum) Compositional Intelligence research team based in Oxford, which is also a leading centre for the further development, use and promotion of ZX-calculus.

The team's other areas of interest are quantum computational linguistics and quantum natural language processing, more generally compositional models for interpretable AI, and compositional reasoning beyond ZX. The team also participates in a quantum gravity grant, including on the topic of ZX-calculus.

The successful candidate will participate in the development of ZX-calculus, applications thereof in quantum technology, and supporting software development. Evidently mastery of ZX-calculus is expected, as well as good knowledge of quantum tech. The successful candidate will be jointly supervised by Chief Scientist Prof. Bob Coecke and Senior Research Fellow Dr. Quanlong (Harny) Wang.

Deadline: 9 May 2022

Dear Colleagues

Please allow me to bring your attention to the below advert for a permanent faculty position at the University of Cape Town within the areas of cosmology, theoretical astrophysics, theoretical high energy physics or gravity research. We are a well funded group in a beautiful city surrounded by nature.

I would be very grateful if you could share the advert broadly and encourage qualified and interested candidates to apply. They are welcome to get in touch with me if they have any questions.

The deadline is 9 May.

Thank you so much in advance

Amanda
