Position description

The Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar position supervised by Professor Lin Lin. The primary role will be in the development and analysis of quantum algorithms, particularly focusing on:

  • Eigenvalue problems.
  • Open quantum systems.
  • Non-Hermitian quantum dynamics.

    While the primary focus is on the areas listed, there is flexibility to work on other topics related to quantum algorithms. Collaborative opportunities abound, as the projects involve active interactions with mathematicians, physicists, and computer scientists.

    The selected Postdoctoral Scholar will be expected to:

  • Develop novel quantum algorithms and analyze the algorithmic complexity of new computational approaches.
  • When applicable, implement algorithms numerically, ensuring they are suitable for open-source distribution to the scientific community.
  • Publish research results in peer-reviewed journals / conferences.
  • Disseminate research results to the broader scientific community in conferences and seminars.
  • Collaborate and integrate with group members. When applicable, mentor junior members of the group.
