About the Job:
As an organization, Google maintains a portfolio of research projects driven by fundamental research, new product innovation, product contribution and infrastructure goals, while providing individuals and teams the freedom to emphasize specific types of work. As a Research Scientist, you’ll setup large-scale tests and deploy promising ideas quickly and broadly, managing deadlines and deliverables while applying the latest theories to develop new and improved products, processes, or technologies. From creating experiments and prototyping implementations to designing new architectures, our research scientists work on real-world problems that span the breadth of computer science, such as machine (and deep) learning, data mining, natural language processing, hardware and software performance analysis, improving compilers for mobile platforms, as well as core search and much more.
As a Research Scientist, you’ll also actively contribute to the wider research community by sharing and publishing your findings, with ideas inspired by internal projects as well as from collaborations with research programs at partner universities and technical institutes all over the world.
The goal of Google Quantum AI is to build practically useful quantum computers. The Physics group of the Pathfinding, Metrology, and Modeling team assists in building quantum computers via theoretical efforts to understand and solve physics problems related to the operation of the quantum processor.
Google Research is building the next generation of intelligent systems for all Google products. To achieve this, we’re working on projects that utilize the latest computer science techniques developed by skilled software engineers and research scientists. Google Research teams collaborate closely with other teams across Google, maintaining the flexibility and versatility required to adapt new projects and foci that meet the demands of the world’s fast-paced business needs.
- Develop noise models for superconducting qubit device operation and design.
- Develop physics-based analytical and numerical models for quantum error correction codes.
- Develop software libraries for small- and large-scale open quantum system simulations.
- Apply holographic description to understand the nonlocal error mechanisms (e.g., crosstalk, etc.) in surface codes and the models of topological quantum computation.
