Scholarship Description
The Quantum Software Consortium (QSC) is inviting applications for its program of prestigious 3-year fellowships, called Ada Lovelace postdoctoral Fellowships, which has the explicit aim of hiring talented female researchers. The consortium is organized around three themes of algorithmic development: for quantum computers, for quantum networks, and for quantum cryptography. A fourth hardware theme, the demonstrator, provides a distributed quantum-computing network linking the three sites of the consortium and The Hague, to test designs arising from the three software themes. World-class hardware for demonstrating quantum algorithms is furthermore available via QuTech, Leiden, and Amsterdam outside this proposal.

Award Value
The appointment/contract for three years will be at one of the QSC-partners, according to the terms of employment of the Dutch Universities or that of the Research Institutes. The salary, depending on experience, will approximately be between 3300 and 4852 euro gross per month, plus twice-yearly approximately a month salary bonus.โ€
