Informatics, Chair of Scientific Computing

Full-Time Research Assistant (m/f/d): Quantum Computing for Li-ion battery simulation

20.11.2021, Wissenschaftliches Personal

Simulating a target quantum system is one of the most promising applications of quantum computing. In line with that, this research project aims at the evaluation and development of robust NISQ quantum-enhanced approaches and sensible use-cases to simulate active materials (in cathodes or anodes) of Li-ion batteries. A special focus should be given to embedding/fragmentation approaches (like density matrix embedding theory) and variational quantum algorithms. The project is a collaborative effort with experts from the BMW group.

Your qualifications

  • An excellent Master degree either in Computer Science, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics or relat-ed fields, ideally with a background in Quantum Theory and Computation, Computational Physics or Numerical Computing
  • Knowledge of variational quantum algorithms or methods for simulating quantum systems
  • Familiarity with the quantum formalism of fermionic systems
  • Openness to communicate, cooperate and exchange ideas with domain experts

Our offer

  • A position 100% TV-L E13 at the department of Informatics at TU München
  • Opportunity for acquiring a PhD
  • Participating in an inspiring interdisciplinary and international scientific environment
  • Contributing to real-world applications of quantum technology

To apply

Please send us your application by e-mail (christian.mendl@tum.de) with the following documents:

  • Curriculum vitae, copies of relevant certificates and diplomas, contact information for two refer-ences
  • Short description of your research interests and your motivation for the application
  • Master thesis and (if available) publications

Application deadline: open
