IntroductionIBM Quantum is an industry first initiative to build universal quantum computers for business, engineering and science. This effort includes advancing the entire quantum computing technology stack and exploring applications to make quantum broadly usable and accessible. With a worldwide network of Fortune 500 companies, academic institutions, researchers, educators, and enthusiasts, we are committed to driving innovation for our clients in the IBM Q Network and the Qiskit Community.Your Role and ResponsibilitiesStart and end dates for this internship are during summer 2021 (3 months)You will be part of a team whose mission is to prototype, test and release new technologies for the world to use. As an IBM Quantum Developer Intern, you will collaborate with a multi-disciplinary, global team of developers, designers, researchers, and engineers to bring new features to life. If you are self-motivated, curious and love to code, we have the right opportunity for you!We are now accepting applications for PhD-level graduate student software developers to become IBM Quantum Developer Interns in 2021, and join the journey from the fundamental science of quantum information to quantum computing research and development. IBM Quantum Developer Interns will have the opportunity to focus on kernel, algorithm, or model development. Areas of focus could include quantum machine learning, quantum biology and health informatics, quantum algorithms for chemistry, quantum simulations, quantum optimization, cloud microservices, and cloud API (among other areas).Graduate students from around the world with varying backgrounds and professional interests and curiosities are encouraged to apply for this unique paid internship experience. The IBM Quantum internship program will connect you with other students, university programs, IBM Q Network organizations, and the quantum computing community. From contributing to the open-source Qiskit framework, to fundamental research in quantum computing, to helping people understand the relevance of quantum computing, IBM Quantum interns will have the opportunity to gain valuable skills and experiences essential for future professional opportunities as well as continued studies.IBM Quantum interns will have the opportunity to:· Receive training on Qiskit and mentorship on contributing to open source· Get access to state-of-the-art quantum processors and devices at IBM· Learn how companies conduct quantum computing research· Work on meaningful problems in the field of quantum computing· Receive mentorship from IBM researchers and others· Collaborate with peers working in the field of quantum computing· Gain a broad experience in quantum research, from fundamental to applied· Get exposure to the wide range of research happening at IBMCandidates currently enrolled in PhD programs are encouraged to apply. United States 2021 intern developers will work out of one of the IBM Research labs in either Yorktown Heights, New York or San Jose, California for up to twelve weeks from June through August (housing or housing stipend, transportation, and some meals will be provided).
