As one of Europe's leading facilities for high-performance computing, HLRS is a diverse community of scientists, engineers, and other professionals focused on discovering and developing new applications of powerful digital technologies and computer science methods.
The High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) was founded as Germany's first federal high-performance computing (HPC) center. It operates one of the fastest supercomputers in the world and offers a wide range of HPC solutions and services for universities, research institutions, and industrial partners. Furthermore, HLRS holds a leading position worldwide in the research areas of engineering and global system sciences. Staff scientists at HLRS investigate emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and quantum computing (QC), and HLRS is significantly involved in international and national research projects across all research areas mentioned above.
Connect supercomputing with quantum computing
Soon, quantum computing (QC) will very likely accelerate many applications, whereby some parts are performed in a classical way on current computers, and other parts are computed on quantum processing units. Consequently, the new computing that we will see will be hybrid, with loose or tight integration between classical high-performance computing (HPC) and quantum accelerators. As a high-performance computing center, we want to better understand how this type of coupling can be achieved, both on a hardware and software level. This also applies to (new) programming models, for which high-level languages under this paradigm have yet to be proposed that can access these QC accelerators using ideally the same paradigms like with current accelerator technologies such as GPUs or FPGAs. Quantum computers will be an accelerator for unique problems and challenges, and thus it is crucial to analyze and research already today, how to solve these problems more efficiently and demonstrating them by means of real-world use cases.
HLRS is currently building its capacity to investigate quantum computing and possibilities to couple both HPC and QC. For this reason, we are looking for a
to work on a national research project that focuses on realizing end-to-end QC solutions for real-world problems.
The advertised position offers the opportunity to complete a doctorate degree, which is actively supported by HLRS.

The University of Stuttgart supports efforts to increase the proportion of women in scientific fields and is therefore particularly interested in applications from women. Full-time positions are generally divisible. Severely disabled persons are given priority in the case of equal suitability. The recruitment of scientific/non-scientific staff is carried out by the Central Administration (Rector's Office).
