The Paris Centre for Quantum Computing (PCQC) in Paris, France, brings together computer scientists, theoretical & experimental physicists and mathematicians that work in and around Paris. Our goal is to develop novel quantum information and communication technologies and lead the way from a Personal Computer (PC) to a Quantum Computer (QC).

PCQC is welcoming applications for a number of PhD and postdoc positions.
In addition, every year, the different French institutions (eg. CNRS, INRIA, Universities) have permanent job openings in Computer Science and in Physics, including quantum information. The application deadline is usually in early January. We recommend interested parties to contact a PCQC member at least two months before the deadline in order to discuss the possibilities and the different application processes.
