(02) Fully Funded PhD Position 

PhD position summary/title:–PhD student position in Quantum experiments with levitated particles

Magnetic levitation of superconducting microparticles is a platform that greatly decouples the center-of-mass motion of a levitated mechanical resonator from its environment. This platform will enable ultra-sensitive force and acceleration sensors, as well as quantum experiments with macroscopic objects of 10^13 atomic mass units. The goal of the project is to generate quantum states in the center-of-mass motion of levitated microparticles. We will make this possible by merging magnetic levitation of superconducting microparticles with superconducting quantum circuits. Coupling these two platforms will allow us to reach quantum control over the motion of the levitated particles. Within the project, you will simulate and fabricate your devices and use these for your experiments. You will receive training in all required techniques such that you will get a smooth start for performing your project in our collaborative working environment.

(03) Fully Funded PhD Position 

PhD position summary/title:–PhD positions in Quantum Nanophotonics

The positions are in the brand-new Quantum Photonics Laboratory (QPL). We are scientists, applied physicists, and engineers. We explore the flow of and interactions between light, sound, and microwaves.

There is no reliable path to a sustainable growth in society’s capability to compute and connect. A key issue is the excessive energy loss caused by communication. In classical datacenters and computers, this energy loss leads to heating and greenhouse gas emissions. In emerging quantum processors, the energy loss prevents scaling up small quantum devices into more powerful systems. We are developing new hardware to address this.

PhD position summary/title:–PhD student position in AI-driven optimization of variational algorithms for near-term quantum device applications in quantum chemistry

Variational quantum algorithms (VQAs) seek to make the most of noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) devices currently operating at academic and industrial labs around the world. VQAs are hybrid algorithms where NISQ devices are controlled via optimization algorithms implemented on classical computers. VQA algorithms have promising near-term applications including in quantum chemistry and optimization.

The application of VQAs to quantum chemical problems is currently limited by both software and hardware – in this project the selected candidate will address two key limitations on the software side:
– Warm-start for VQAs using the underlying structure of molecules and their Hamiltonians – to minimize the number of quantum-classical computer cycles needed for convergence.
– Learning functions to map molecules to bespoke hardware-efficient circuit Ansätze – to lower the demand on the number of qubits necessary to accurately compute ground state energies.

PhD position summary/title:–PhD student position in New functions of amyloid fibers

In Wittung-Stafshede’s research group, a combination of biochemical and biophysical methods are employed to study functional properties of individual proteins and of cellular pathways on a molecular, mechanistic level. The overall goal is to increase basic knowledge important for human health and to counteract diseases. Current research directions include the role of copper-binding proteins in cancer and how protein misfolding and aggregation result in amyloids. Recent results have shown that amyloids formed by the protein alpha-synuclein, which is linked to Parkinson’s disease, can act as enzymes and catalyze chemical reactions.

This PhD project will explore this novel amyloid activity in vitro, in cells, and through metabolomic approaches. The focus will be on alpha-synuclein and Parkinson, but other amyloidogenic proteins may be included. In addition, the role of metal ions as modulators of catalytic activity, liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS), and final amyloid structure will be elucidated. The project will involve a range of biochemistry and biophysics (spectroscopy, microscopy) methods using purified proteins along with cell culture studies as appropriate. Some parts of the project may involve collaborators.
The project may change focus over time, depending on results and interests. Overall, the goal is to reveal new knowledge about amyloids that, in the long-term, is helpful to combat neurodegenerative disorders.

PhD position summary/title:–PhD student in Neuro-symbolic AI for Mathematical Discovery

Generative AI, with tools like ChatGPT, driven by Large Language Models (LLMs), have in the past year demonstrated impressive capabilities in generation of not only fluent text but also computer code. They take instructions in natural language and can perform seemingly creative tasks very well. However, LLMs can be unreliable: a well-known issue is hallucinations where seemingly sensible but incorrect answers are produced, and their reasoning capabilities are fragile.

Research mathematicians are increasingly staring to use computers to assist in their research, not least in cases where proofs turn out to be so large that it is impossible to check each step manually (a amous example is Thomas Hales’ proof of Kepler’s conjecture). Proof-assistants are software designed for exactly this: keeping track of precise definitions and checking each step of the proof. However, using a proof assistant requires both expertise in how to program them, and libraries of foundational mathematics to already be in place.

About Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden   –Official Website

Chalmers University of Technology  is a Swedish university located in Gothenburg that focuses on research and education in technology, natural sciences, architecture, mathematics, maritime and other management areas.
The university was founded in 1829 following a donation by William Chalmers, a director of the Swedish East India Company. He donated part of his fortune for the establishment of an “industrial school”. Chalmers was run as a private institution until 1937, when the institute became a state-owned university. In 1994, the school was incorporated as an aktiebolag under the control of the Swedish Government, the faculty and the Student Union. Chalmers is one of only three universities in Sweden which are named after a person, the other two being Karolinska Institutet and Linnaeus University.
