IBM PhD Quantum Research Summer Intern: 2021 in New York, New York
At IBM, work is more than a job - it's a calling: To build. To design. To code. To consult. To think along with clients and sell. To make markets. To invent. To collaborate. Not just to do something better, but to attempt things you've never thought possible. Are you ready to lead in this new era of technology and solve some of the world's most challenging problems? If so, lets talk.
Your Role and Responsibilities
Start and end dates for this internship are during summer 2021 (3 months)
You will be part of a team whose mission is to prototype, test and release new technologies for the world to use. As an IBM Quantum Research Intern, you will collaborate with a multi-disciplinary, global team of developers, designers, researchers, and engineers to bring new features to life. If you are self-motivated, curious and love to code, we have the right opportunity for you!
We are now accepting applications for PhD-level graduate student researchers to become IBM Quantum Research Interns in 2021, and join the journey from the fundamental science of quantum information to quantum computing research and development. IBM Quantum Research Interns will have the opportunity to focus on experiments, theory, or quantum information science. Areas of research could include superconducting qubits, quantum control, quantum error correction, quantum complexity theory, quantum algorithms, quantum machine learning, and quantum compilers and optimizers (among other areas).
Graduate students from around the world with varying backgrounds and professional interests and curiosities are encouraged to apply for this unique paid internship experience. The IBM Quantum internship program will connect you with other students, university programs, IBM Q Network organizations, and the quantum computing community. From contributing to the open-source Qiskit framework, to fundamental research in quantum computing, to helping people understand the relevance of quantum computing, IBM Quantum interns will have the opportunity to gain valuable skills and experiences essential for future professional opportunities as well as continued studies.
IBM Quantum interns will have the opportunity to:
Learn how companies conduct quantum computing research
Work on meaningful problems in the field of quantum computing
Receive mentorship from IBM researchers and others
Collaborate with peers working in the field of quantum computing
Get access to state-of-the-art quantum processors and devices at IBM
Gain a broad experience in quantum research, from fundamental to applied
Get exposure to the wide range of research happening at IBM
Receive training on Qiskit and mentorship on contributing to open source
Candidates currently enrolled in PhD programs are encouraged to apply. United States 2021 intern researchers will work out of one of the IBM Research labs in either Yorktown Heights, New York or San Jose, California for up to twelve weeks from June through August (housing or housing stipend, transportation, and some meals will be provided). Candidates will have an opportunity to discuss specific location, timing, and academic calendars as part of the application process. Depending on the role, some travel may be involved to IBM Q Network and IBM Quantum events such as Qiskit Camp.
