Quantum chemistry is a leading application area for quantum computing.  Because quantum processing units are able to prepare and measure quantum states in exponentially large Hilbert spaces, quantum computers can be used to efficiently explore many-particle systems.  Our team has already computed many-electron ground-state energies for several small molecules, including molecular fluorine, using real quantum hardware.

We are looking for a talented scientist who is interested in developing new methods to expand current capabilities and performing research to gain further understanding of this emerging field.
