Postdoctoral position in materials for energy applications studied using neutron scattering techniques

Do you want to perform cutting-edge research on energy related materials, by developing and using innovative experimental methods at world leading research centers? Then apply for this postdoctoral position!

Project description
Research on materials for energy applications is a key on the pathway towards a sustainable society. Clean and sustainable sources of energy are required to reduce global warming. In this regard, new materials for energy production, storage and conversion need to be developed. We are interested in understanding the very nature of such materials. In particular, we are interested in the surfaces and interfaces, which often play a key role for technological applications, as this is the region where things are actually happening, e.g. charge separation in photovoltaics or the spitting or recombination of water in fuel cells. However, even though for many materials the bulk properties are quite well understood, knowledge about interfaces is still limited, as their investigation is experimentally more challenging.

For energy materials, a critical challenge is to understand the nature of the dynamics at interfaces and in thin films at the atomic scale and how this is related to materials macroscopic properties, such as ionic conductivity. Neutron scattering methods have the potential to address such research questions. In bulk materials neutron scattering methods are routinely used for the study of dynamics but due to the limited brilliance of nowadays neutron sources the methods are challenging to apply to thin films and interfaces. It is expected that this scenario will change with the commissioning of the next-generation neutron source, the European Spallation Source (ESS), which is under construction in Lund, Sweden. Once in operation ESS will be the world leading research center for neutron science and enable completely new studies in materials science. In this research project, the postdoc will take full benefit of this opportunity and develop surface sensitive neutron spectroscopy on the time-of-flight spectrometer TOFTOF at the FRM II Neutron Source in Garching (Germany) with the goal of transferring the technology to ESS and apply it to materials relevant for energy research.

Major responsibilities
The project will be conducted in collaboration between the research groups of assoc. prof. Maths Karlsson, Chalmers, prof. Max Wolff, Uppsala University, and dr. Wiebke Lohstroh, FRM II. The tasks are twofold. Firstly, the postdoctoral researcher will perform cutting-edge research on energy related materials, using neutron scattering techniques. Ideally this work will benefit from strong synergies with the research within the group of M. Karlsson, which has current research activities in energy materials including studies of structure and dynamics of proton and hydride-ion conducting oxides, metal halide perovskites, and inorganic phosphors. Secondly, the postdoctoral researcher will design and develop near-sample optics and specialized sample holders for grazing incidence neutron spectroscopy, benchmark the performance in neutron ray-tracing simulations, perform virtual experiments to evaluate potential limitations of the method, and perform pilot studies on energy related materials in the form of thin films and specially designed neutron resonator samples on TOFTOF and elsewhere. Additionally, the postdoc will be engaged in the outreach of the project, and network with instruments scientists and potential users of the method. The postdoc is expected to spend a substantial amount of time at the FRM II Neutron Source in Germany.

Contract terms
The position is for two years and will support science programs funded by Chalmers University of Technology. The position may be extended up to four years, in case more funding will become available.

Qualifications
We are looking for a highly motivated person with a background in materials science and neutron and/or synchrotron X-ray scattering, and with skills in computer modeling/programming, e.g. with Python, McStas or other high-level languages. Experience with the development of advanced instrumentation (not necessarily related to neutron/x-ray scattering) is an asset. Applicants must hold a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or a similar area of science. The degree should generally not be older than three years.

We offer
Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the coastal city of Gothenburg.

PhD student in formal semantics and verification for quantum computing

Doktorand

Information about the project
This project is part of QuantumStack, a 5-year project funded by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, with the aim of developing a full software stack for programming quantum computers. The project is integrated with the Wallenberg Centre for Quantum Technology (WACQT), a 12-year, billion-SEK initiative started in 2018 with the purpose of advancing Swedish academia and industry to the forefront of quantum technology, and to build a Swedish quantum computer. Our ambitious goal at Chalmers is to build this quantum computer with 100 superconducting qubits and to apply it to real computational problems that cannot be efficiently solved on a conventional computer. Such computationally hard problems are found, e.g., in optimization, quantum chemistry, materials science, machine learning, etc.

So far there has been a separation between the theory of quantum computing as studied by Computer Scientists and mathematicians, and the work that physicists have been doing on the quantum computers that exist today. We want to create a compilation stack that will bridge this gap, and we want to use the techniques of type theory and formal logic to ensure that the stack is sound.

We are now seeking a PhD student to create formal semantics for the languages involved in the compilation stack, develop tools for verifying that each stage in the compilation stack is sound, and develop domain-specific languages (DSLs) for the stages of the compilation stack including the control pulses that are fed to the qubits.

This work is both important practically, and a fascinating theoretical challenge - to find the correct logic(s) and type theory for describing and reasoning about quantum algorithms - which may itself give insight into the physical universe. You will also have the opportunity to see the results applied to real quantum computers as the project proceeds.

This project is funded by SSF (https://strategiska.se/en/) under their call for "Future Software Systems".

The division of Computing Science pursues research and education that advances the design of secure and trustworthy software and systems, from theoretical foundations, and up through the design and implementation of programming languages and tools. The focus of the Logic and Types group within the division is on dependent type theory, and is best known for the development of well-known proof assistants, including the Agda system.

Major responsibilities
The main responsibilities of a PhD student at Chalmers consist in pursuing doctoral studies by conducting research within your project, in collaboration and independently, leading to results that you will publish in journals and present at meeting and conferences.

Your studies also include coursework in your field and common core courses on generic and transferable skills. The position generally also includes teaching on the undergraduate level or other duties corresponding to up to 20 per cent of working hours.

Qualifications
Required qualifications:
*MSc in Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, or equivalent
*Excellent communication skills in written and spoken English

Desired qualifications: One or more of
* Ability to program in functional languages such as Haskell or ML
* Experience with quantum computing
* Experience with type theory
* Experience with proof assistants such as Coq or Agda

We value a collaborative attitude and an interest in working both in teams and independently. Self-motivation, attention to detail, and a problem-solving analytical ability are important personal qualities for this position.

Contract terms
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of five years.

PhD student in compilation of quantum algorithms to quantum hardware

Doktorand
Läs mer Jun 22
We are looking for a PhD student to optimize compilation of programs that are to be run on our quantum computers. Improving the compilation of abstract quantum algorithms into hardware-specific instructions is crucial to make quantum computers useful. The work in this project is to explore and improve methods to (1) map logical qubits in a hardware-agnostic quantum algorithm to physical qubits in specific quantum-computing hardware, (2) insert a minimum number of extra operations to connect qubits that need to interact but are not nearest neighbours after the initial mapping, and (3) compress the resulting quantum circuit as much as possible. One tool for tackling all these problems is machine learning.

Information about the research project
This project is part of QuantumStack, a 5-year project funded by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, with the aim of developing a full software stack for programming quantum computers.

Such computationally hard problems are found, e.g., in optimization, quantum chemistry, materials science, machine learning, etc.

Building a quantum computer requires a multi-disciplinary effort involving experimental and theoretical physicists, electrical and microwave engineers, computer scientists, software engineers, and researchers in materials science and nanotechnology. We are developing the superconducting quantum devices, control circuits, firmware, and methods required to make the quantum computer a reality. This development takes place is in a close, fruitful collaboration between experimentalists in the Quantum Technology Laboratory (QTL) and theorists at the Applied Quantum Physics Laboratory (AQPL) and the Department for Computer Science and Engineering. In this collaboration, the main tasks of the theorists are to help model the hardware and to develop application use cases for the quantum processor. Our team is also a prominent partner in the internationally competitive OpenSuperQ collaborative project working to build a quantum computer within the EU Flagship on Quantum Technology.

Our WACQT team at Chalmers currently has about 80 members (faculty, permanent research staff, postdoctoral researchers, PhD students, and undergraduate students) and is expanding. WACQT is committed to promoting career development, diversity, and gender equality through networking and supporting activities.

Our department Microtechnology and Nanoscience (MC2) is host to the state-of-the-art MC2 Nanotechnology Laboratory cleanroom, the largest such facility in Northern Europe, and our measurement lab at QTL is well equipped with cryogenic and microwave electronic equipment. We are in a position to build and operate large-scale quantum processors!
