Internal Research Fellow (PostDoc) in Quantum Computing for Earth Observation
You will be based at Φ-lab at ESRIN, whose mission is to accelerate new developments in Earth observation (EO) by helping ESA, European industry, start-up and research communities rapidly adopt transformative technologies. You will be part of a multi-disciplinary team of researchers and data scientists passionate about innovation, and will work in an inspiring and collaborative environment.
Φ-lab is focusing on exploring the use and impact of new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), quantum computing (QC), Internet of Things (IoT), and blockchain activities which have promise in terms of delivering visible impact in the field of Earth observation.
About the position
You will carry out applied research in quantum computing with particular emphasis on developing new methods applicable to Earth observation. You will define and lead research projects addressing the objectives of the Φ-lab Quantum Computing for Earth Observation (QC4EO) initiative, and more generally ESA’s objectives. You will work closely with the Φ-lab team and network of partners to explore new ideas at the intersection between AI, QC, and EO. You will support and contribute to Φ-lab activities in the community related to your expertise.
