Three Postdoc positions in quantum error correction, Grenoble, France

Full Time
Employment Information

We invite applications for three postdoctoral positions in quantum error correction. Each position is for a period of 18 to 24 months, and is hosted by the error correction research group at CEA-LETI, a research institute for electronics and information technologies, based in Grenoble, France. The successful candidates will conduct research in one of the following three topics:

(1)   Quantum polar codes, including but not restricted to, polar encoded fault-tolerant quantum computation.

(2)   Quantum LDPC codes, including but not restricted to, message passing and machine learning techniques for decoding quantum LDPC codes

(3)   Scalable hardware architectures and implementations of topological and quantum LDPC decoders.


The quantum error correction research group is part of the interdisciplinary QuantAlps ecosystem for quantum science and technologies, spanning from theoretical computer science to experimental quantum engineering, and involving research teams from the Grenoble Alpes University and CNRS.  The positions are part of the QUANTERA/EQUIP ( and ANR/NISQ2LSQ collaborative research projects, and interaction with other partners will be encouraged.


Starting date: flexible, from June 2023 to June 2024.


About CEA-LETI: The Laboratory for Electronics & Information Technology of CEA (France’s nuclear and renewable energy commission), based in Grenoble, France, is one of the largest applied research laboratories in Europe in the field of electronics and micro/nanotechnology. CEA-LETI has a diversely skilled team working on quantum development, including simulation and modeling, device architecture and design, 3D integration and packaging, physical characterization, control electronics, error correction, and software. These skills are complemented by CEA-IRIG and CNRS who are experts in quantum engineering, physics of scaled nanostructures, and quantum physics.
