Contribute to tomorrow’s information security. Envision it. Join us for your research internship at the department Applied Cryptography & Quantum Algorithms at TNO The Hague or Groningen. Most quantum algorithms require many more qubits than today’s hardware offers. When using quantum networks, we can link various quantum devices and thereby solve larger problems than single quantum computers can. Furthermore, these linked quantum computers open the way to completely new applications, such as secure cooperation between various parties. Both are examples of distributed quantum computing.
What will be your role?
You do this in the (digital) company of your inspiring colleagues and fellow interns at the Applied Cryptography & Quantum Algorithms department. As an intern you are really part of the team, and you can hop into anyone’s office for a chat about your project, to make use of their expertise, but also for personal feedback or just a cup of coffee. That way you can learn all about the interesting work we do.
How do you want to contribute to tomorrow's world? How big can your impact be? Come and work at TNO and envision it.
What we expect from you
In addition, you have:
- Academic level: you are in the final phase of your master's.
- A background in, or affinity with, quantum computing is an advantage – you have the motivation and ability to master the topic within the first few months of your internship.
- Programming experience with Python is an advantage.
- Academic proficiency of English.
