Apply for fully-funded CERN Senior Fellowship in Quantum-HEP in Geneva, Switzerland. The fellowship position is based on CERN’s Department of Theoretical Physics (CERN-TH) and focuses on the development of high performance simulation codes for quantum algorithms, with emphasis on quantum optimization problems, quantum machine learning, and many-body quantum simulations applied to High Energy Physics (HEP).

Basically, research activities will include hybrid classical-quantum approaches, neural- and tensor-network tools, quantum signal processing, quantum error correction or mitigation, computational complexity, verification or benchmarking schemes for quantum devices, and quantum-circuit compiling and optimization.

Key Responsibilities

As a Fellow in CERN Senior Fellowship in Quantum-HEP you will:

  • Design, implement and benchmark quantum algorithms for applications in HEP.
  • Develop hybrid classic-quantum mathematical models based on variational quantum architectures. Design open source libraries for quantum machine learning applications, including regression, classification and generative models for HEP.
  • Work in synergy with Fellows from the CERN-TH group and PhD students from the Quantum Technology Initiative. Organize, participate and promote quantum computation at CERN, with journal clubs, seminars, workshops and conferences.

Eligibility Criteria

Candidates must have the following qualifications for this CERN Senior Fellowship in Quantum-HEP

  • National of a CERN Member or Associate Member State.
  • PhD, or at least 4 years’ relevant experience since the completion of your MSc (or the equivalent diploma which gives access to doctoral programmes) in Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics or in a similar relevant course, and in both cases a maximum limit of 10 years’ experience after completion of you MSc.

Essential Skills and Experience

  • Research experience, documented by publications in peer reviewed journals, in at least one of the following fields: quantum information, theoretical particle physics, computational physics.
  • Basic knowledge and/or strong interest in high performance computing, hardware accelerators (GPUs), multi-node grid computing, mathematical models, including artificial intelligence applied to physics.
  • Good communication skills as well as the ability to perform research in a collaborative environment, in synergy with other researchers.


The European Organization for Nuclear Research (also known as CERN) is a European research organization. It operates the largest Particles Physics laboratory in the world. This 1954 established organization has 23 member countries altogether. Using the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments, scientists of CERN studies basic constituents of matter – fundamental particles that collide together at close to the speed of light. In general, CERN’s main function is to provide particle accelerators and other infrastructure for high-energy physics research.
