NVIDIA is looking for help combining generative artificial intelligence with quantum computing.
In a recent job posting, the pioneering GPU firm posts that its Quantum Computing Architecture team wants to hire software architects with expertise in generative AI.
The mission of that hire will be “to advance the state-of-the-art for hybrid quantum-classical programming, compilation, and application workflows.”
The posting adds that this position will be essential for the development of next-generation, quantum-accelerated GPU-supercomputing architectures and toolchains.
According to the post, these experts will be tasked with the development and utility of Large Language Models for code generation and knowledge distillation with a specific focus on quantum computing.
Further, the post states: “A defining aspect of this role is the ability to architect and engineer complex software systems that apply generative AI to aid and assist the growing quantum computing research field. Successful applicants will lead projects that enhance the NVIDIA Quantum Platform and demonstrate the utility of NVIDIA GPUs for a wide array of quantum-classical programming and compilation tasks.”
Candidates are expected to have a degree in physics, computer science, chemistry, applied mathematics, or related engineering field or equivalent experience, with a preference for candidates with master’s or doctoral degrees in those areas. They are also expected to have hands-on experience in AI and / or quantum computing, along with extensive background in generative artificial intelligence.
Last spring, NVIDIA announced that it developed a new architecture for researchers working in high-performance and low-latency quantum-classical computing with Quantum Machines , The GPU-accelerated quantum computing system, the NVIDIA DGX Quantum brings together a computing platform enabled by the NVIDIA Grace Hopper Superchip and CUDA Quantum open-source programming model with a quantum control platform, OPX, developed by Quantum Machines.
And, if interested, the high end of the salary is around $335,500.
