Graph Machine Learning Lead, Full time, Onsite – Massy, France

Participate in the rapid development of a deep-tech start-up at the forefront of the second quantum revolution!

About Pasqal

PASQAL designs and develops Quantum Processing Units (QPUs) and associated software tools.
Our innovative technology enables us to address use cases that are currently beyond the reach of the most powerful supercomputers; these cases can concern industrial application challenges as well as fundamental science needs.
In addition to the exceptional computing power they provide, QPUs are highly energy efficient and will contribute to a significant reduction in the carbon footprint of the HPC industry.

Job Description

As part of our strong growth, we are recruiting a Quantum Graph Machine Learning Project Lead to reinforce our Application team.

In this context, you’ll work among top scientists and developers in the quantum industry. You will work in partnership with our quantum developers teams in France and in the Netherland, as well as our quantum hardware teams.

You will manage and mentor a team of 5+ quantum graph algorithm researchers at various levels in their career (from Junior to Mid-Senior), organize its work, lead the members and follow up on internal and external projects.

You will be in charge of creating vision and roadmap for the specific topic of graph machine learning, identifying the blocking points and limits of graph machine learning (from an application and/or algorithm point of view); this includes (but is not limited to) classification tasks, coarsening/sampling.

You will work with the hardware teams to coordinate the choices and decisions.

You will work closely together with PASQAL’s use case teams to understand which domains and applications are the most industrially relevant for a quantum approach.

You will also support quantum algorithm developers working on client projects.

We'll provide training and provide technical experts as you get introduced to the company, algorithm portfolio and hardware specifics. Being a senior level role, having a thorough understanding and experience in general graph machine learning and related technology will be required coming in on day 1.

This position will report directly to our Head of Graph Quantum Computing Algorithms. The work will be based on site in our Massy office (remote/hybrid option negotiable under exceptional circumstance).
