Mitacs Intern - Quantum Physics Researcher At 1QBit


Vancouver, Bc

Job Description

1QBit is dedicated to solving the world's most intractable challenges by recasting problems to harness the power of quantum computing. We identify intractable industry problems and apply breakthroughs in computation to machine intelligence and optimization science to build software that allows applications to continually benefit from advances in both quantum and classical hardware.

We believe that quantum technologies will form the next pillar of computational progress. We research, benchmark and build software development kits, online platforms, and applications that make the power of quantum computers accessible to researchers, developers and industry-leading organizations so they can solve their most difficult problems in fields such as optimization, simulation, and machine learning.

As an interdisciplinary team of world-class mathematicians, physicists, operations research scientists, computer scientists, software developers, computational chemists, and quantum computing experts, we share a curiosity and drive to uncover new ways of solving currently intractable problems using advanced classical and quantum systems.

Our work is guided by a shared set of values focused on five fundamental principles:

Your Role

As a member of our Professional Services Team, you will utilize your background in physics and work in collaboration with other physicists, chemists, and quantum information scientists, to address some of the world's most challenging industrial and scientific problems. You will have the opportunity to work with the most advanced quantum and classical computing hardware architectures to develop and analyze novel quantum-classical hybrid algorithms in the fields of quantum chemistry and physics.

You will use your creativity to tackle the bottlenecks in the near-term quantum computing devices. You will use your experience in scientific research for experimental implementations, rapid prototyping, and deployment of powerful computational solutions. Towards this end, you will leverage the scale of 1QBit's proprietary data and software infrastructure in conjunction with commercial tools and exotic hardware prototypes.

What You'll Bring

Members of our team bring a confluence of personality, skills, and intent that contributes to their individual development and our collective growth as an organization. Here is the complementary knowledge and mindset you will bring to our team:

Who You Are

You share our belief that principles, not policies, enable individuals and teams to apply their unique lens in making decisions. Like all 1QBit team members, you thrive in our flat hierarchy of empowered individuals. You embrace the rigorous examination of thoughts and work of diverse minds from multiple disciplines because you know it uncovers deeper insights and produces robust results. You believe there is no failure in exploration because new breakthroughs often require rigorous examination of multiple paths before a conclusion is reached. You have a desire to apply yourself to purposeful work that is inspiring, meaningful, and fun, to create value for the world by advancing the ability to solve complex problems. You have a relentless curiosity for exploring new methodologies and you have an intrinsic drive to architect the foundation of the quantum ecosystem because you love the challenges and understand the rewards that the next paradigm of computation will bring.
