Quantum Error Correction - Internship

Research – Theory /
Intern / Stage /
Alice&Bob is developing the first universal, fault-tolerant quantum computer to solve the world’s hardest problems. The quantum computer we envision building is based on a new kind of superconducting qubit: the Schrödinger cat qubit. In comparison to other superconducting platforms, cat qubits have the astonishing ability to implement quantum error correction autonomously!

We are at the forefront of the quantum race, competing with tech giants such as Google or IBM. We are growing fast, securing 30 million USD of funding in 2022 to develop our unique technology. We are 100 and counting, between physicists, PhDs, engineers and experienced business professionals, all united in reaching our ambitious goal. If you are an explorer, craving to challenge yourself and make quantum computing come true, come and join us!

As an intern in the Theory team, you will be involved in the development of new quantum error correction methods to reduce the number of qubits needed to build a quantum computer.
Addressing the overhead associated with quantum error correction is a critical challenge in the field of quantum computing. Your efforts will play a key role in accelerating the development of practical and efficient quantum computers


    • Familiarize with cat qubits
    • Familiarize with quantum error correction and simulation techniques
    • Design new quantum error correction strategy
    • Develop a python code to evaluate the theoretical performance


    • You are currently enrolled in a relevant degree at the Master’s level, and are looking for a 4 to 6-month internship,
    • Have followed classes on quantum mechanics and quantum error correction,
    • You are a curious and pragmatic individual with a proactive approach and a willingness to take initiatives,
    • You have experience coding in Python,
    • You have excellent initiative, and feel comfortable navigating an open problem with many ramifications,
    • You are motivated to be part of a fast-growing startup, in a cutting-edge environment.
The proposed internship period is six months between September 2024 and February 2025. The internship is open to applicants that have the right to work in France. At this moment we cannot support visa applications

Research shows that women might feel hesitant to apply for this job if they don't match 100% of the job requirements listed. This list is a guide, and we'd love to receive your application even if you think you're only a partial match. We are looking to build teams that innovate, not just tick boxes on a job spec.

You will join of one of the most innovative startups in France at an early stage, to be part of a passionate and friendly team on its mission to build the first universal quantum computer!

We love to share and learn from one another, so you will be certain to innovate, develop new ideas, and have the space to grow.
