Software and Algorithms for Quantum Computational Chemistry

This project is focused on improving the theory, software and scope of applications of quantum computational chemistry. The intern will work with the company research team to further develop new theoretical methods which are under development, implement them into code as part of the existing open-source PennyLane package, and run tests for modelling the vibrational properties of a specific sample molecule. The intern will gain valuable experience working with a leading company in the field of quantum computing and will be able to lead the preparation of a journal-ready article. The company will benefit from the intern’s talent and expertise to push this project forward from theory into implementation and testing. When the resulting software is publicly available, with demonstrated results, it will help more attention and research users to the company’s quantum computing products and services.
