Academic supervisor: Niel de Beaudrap (DPhil in Computer Science); IBM co-supervisor: TBC
This project aims to develop techniques to break down optimisation problems and other problems, using building-blocks consisting of higher-level interactions in superconducting quantum systems.
DPhil in Computational Discovery
The DPhil in Computational Discovery is a multidisciplinary programme spanning projects in Advanced Molecular Simulations, Machine Learning and Quantum Computing to develop new tools and methodologies for life sciences discovery.
This innovative course has been developed in close partnership between Oxford University and IBM Research. Each research project has been co-developed by Oxford academics working with IBM scientists. Students will have a named IBM supervisor/s and many opportunities for collaboration with IBM throughout the studentship.
Applicants who are offered places on the DPhil in Computational Discovery will be fully funded. As a minimum, the funding package will include fees at the Home/EU rate, and a stipend for UK students only at the standard Research Council rate (currently £15,009 pa) for the duration of fee liability (four years).
Applications must be received by 12 midday (UK time) on Friday 24 January 2020.
