Posted on Saturday, March 23, 2024

HAIQU is a stealth Quantum Computing startup that builds enabling quantum software to run scalable applications on today’s noisy quantum hardware. Haiqu was founded by Stanford and the Weizmann Institute of Science alumni, graduated from a world-leading deep-tech accelerator (The Creative Destruction Lab) and is backed by some of Silicon Valley’s leading investors.

As an intern in Haiqu’s algorithms team, you will explore a broad set of quantum applications and quantum algorithms concepts. You will contribute to research projects on efficient characterization, benchmarking, use-case applicability and limitations of quantum algorithms. To this end, you will conduct theoretical algorithms research, prototyping and implementations using state-of-the-art quantum frameworks and hardware. You will be encouraged to participate in Haiqu research team activities such as talks and the Journal club, and will be offered scientific and technical support. Positions will last for 3-6 months with the potential of being converted into a full-time position.

Responsibilities:

- Research, design, and prototype quantum algorithms for specific applications.

- Maintain and grow up-to-date knowledge of quantum algorithms, compilers, and related fields.

- Produce high-quality production code and technical documentation
