The post-doc will have as objective to explore the possibilities given by the combination of artificial intelligence combined with quantum computing within the AGATA gamma-ray spectrometer project.
The postdoc will:
- Do an up-to-date summary of possible algorithms that can improve the performance of AGATA.
- Implement these algorithms on quantum computers (or simulations of).
The candidate has to have a PhD in physics or computer science. Knowledge of neural networks or quantum computers. A working knowledge in English is mandatory.
The Irène Joliot-Curie Physics L aboratory of 2 Infinities (IJCLab) is a UMR under the supervision of the CNRS (IN2P3), the University of Paris-Saclay and the University of Paris is located on the campus of the University of Paris -Saclay in Orsay. The laboratory is located on the campus of the Université Paris-Sud, Université Paris-Saclay in Orsay. The campus is located 20 km south of Paris and easily accessible by RER in 35 minutes.
IJCLab was born in 2020 from the merger of five units (CSNSM, IMNC, IPN, LAL, LPT). The staff is made up of nearly 560 permanent (340 engineers, technicians and administrators and 220 researchers and teacher-researchers) and approximately 200 non-permanent including 120 doctoral students. The research themes of the laboratory are nuclear physics, high energy physics, theoretical physics, astroparticles, astrophysics and cosmology, particle accelerators, energy and the environment and health. IJCLab has very significant technical capacities (around 280 IT) in all the major fields required to design, develop / implement the experimental devices necessary for its scientific activity, as well as the design, development and use of instruments. .
The postdoc will work in the SDF group of the Laboratory which has a broad nuclear structure research program. Within the group we measure masses, electromagnetic properties of ground states and excited states, study the fission process and super heavy nuclei via decay spectroscopy. The group includes around 10 physicists (permanent researchers, post-docs and doctoral students).
