JOIN OUR EFFORTS TO

scale quantum computing

THROUGH VENTURE.
Quantum information processing has the potential to exponentially accelerate computing, enabling us to solve critical problems that are currently impossible on the world’s best supercomputers. A large-scale quantum computer could revolutionise how we tackle some of the most urgent issues facing our society including climate change, the complexity of disease and food scarcity.
However, even after decades of research, practical quantum computing remains a distant dream for most even with an increasing number of physical systems being explored for storage and computing (spin-based, trapped-ion, optical, quantum dot, etc.). Beyond the noise and scalability issue currently plaguing quantum hardware, there remains a huge gap between the hardware and software.
We are developing a new application-driven framework across both the hardware and software layers using the dual particle-wave nature of light to be able to solve a larger class of problems. However, this challenge requires us to expand how we fundamentally think about quantum computers as well as the problems we’re trying to solve. To do this, we’re assembling a founding team with expertise across probability theory, computer science, quantum optics, and application experience to attack the problem from all angles.
Working alongside the interdisciplinary team, you will bring your knowledge and experimental skills to develop the hardware and software required to solve these critical real-world problems before it’s too late.

 

OUR OFFER
Your role will start as a Founder within DSV under our unique framework for venture creation and transition to becoming part of the founding team of one of the companies which will emerge from it. We already have a number of exciting projects being developed in this space and expect to make first investments into newly formed startups this year alongside our industry partner who will be announced shortly!
At DSV, we have partnerships with some of the world’s leading companies in the industry to support teams working on transition to clean fuels. There’s up to £500k of investment from DSV alone, and at least £100k in grant funding, plus the further opportunity to carry out 6 figure industrial proof of concept work. In addition to the investment, we also provide a monthly stipend to all our Entrepreneurs in Residence to support their time transitioning into the new venture.
No prior idea or IP required.

 

THE IDEAL PROFILE FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY
You bring broad technical knowledge (see below) at a Doctoral level and are comfortable exploring both theoretical and experimental challenges. You’re highly collaborative and able to think creatively to solve problems, not constrained by conventional thinking. You should be entrepreneurial, always asking why, and actively enjoy building a network around the problems and opportunities that you go after.
We’re looking for a candidate with experience in the following:
• Design and simulation of integrated photonic circuits
• Micro/Nanofabrication techniques (e.g. lithography, etching, thin-film deposition)
• Quantum field theory applied to quantum optics (Gaussian/Fock states, Wigner functions, cluster states)
• Familiarity with optical lab fundamentals (lasers, OPOs, oscilloscopes, photodetectors, spectroscopy)
Optical communication techniques and extension to quantum systems (QKD, teleportation)
Basic coding abilities in a common programming language (C/C++, Python, Java, Go, Rust)
Knowledge of digital and analog signal processing techniques
