About Nord Quantique

At Nord Quantique, we strive to build impactful technology by relentlessly pushing our understanding of quantum science. We are an interdisciplinary team of scientists, engineers, innovators, builders, and enthusiasts on a mission to make quantum computing a reality. Our quantum processors are designed to reduce errors in quantum computation to facilitate long-term scaling toward fully-fledged quantum computers. We believe it is our responsibility to deliver this transformative technology for the greater good of society.

Located at the heart of the beautiful Eastern Townships region in the province of Quebec, Canada, we develop our technology in the vibrant quantum ecosystem of Sherbrooke, . Leaning on more than a decade of vertical integration of quantum hardware, we are leveraging a comprehensive pool of quantum technology and micro-electronic infrastructure to deploy our quantum computing technology.

Our current needs

We are scaling our activities alongside our quantum processors. In this effort, we are looking for an exceptional individual with a strong track record of theoretical work in the field of quantum computing with superconducting circuits. This person will assist our team in the development and scaling up of our technology.

More specifically, this individual will be leading projects on the theory side, developing new control methods for bosonic qubits, assisting on the experimental campaign, providing the design team with a complete theoretical description of bosonic qubit hardware and continuously pushing our comprehension of bosonic systems further. This person will evolve within a highly dynamic environment with strong interaction with the hardware and design groups.

  • Proven experience in leading research projects

  • Proven ability to model and understand quantum systems using analytical and numerical techniques

  • Deep knowledge of analytical and numerical methods relevant to the field

  • Proven ability to develop quantum simulation tools in python-based environments

Preferred experience

  • Ph.D. and 2 years of experience in industry or postdoctoral role

  • Experience with theory of quantum computing systems based on superconducting circuits is an asset

  • Experience with theoretical aspects of bosonic codes is an asset

  • Experience in quantum error correction is an asset

Sought profile

  • Strong critical thinking with proven ability to solve complex problems

  • Ability to assume a leadership role and drive a small team toward success

  • Team-oriented mindset with proven experience in team working

  • Ability to prioritize tasks and deliver results in a rapidly changing environment

  • Excellent communication skills, and ability to convey complex concepts simply
