EMPLOYER

Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) is the Dutch national research institute for mathematics and computer science and is an institute of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The mission of CWI is to conduct pioneering research in mathematics and computer science, generating new knowledge in these fields and conveying it to trade, industry, and society at large. CWI is an internationally oriented institute, with 160 scientists from approximately 30 countries. The facilities are first-rate and include excellent IT support, career planning, training, and courses. CWI is located at Amsterdam Science Park which is home to one of the largest concentrations of beta science in Europe. A melting pot of innovation. Companies looking to collaborate can work together with brilliant students, scientists and fellow entrepreneurs. Collectively they develop revolutionary solutions for today's issues and tomorrow's challenges.Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica

DEPARTMENT

Our research group designs software for the computing technology of the future, especially quantum computing. Based on the laws of quantum mechanics, which tell us that systems and particles can be in multiple states at once, quantum computing is radically different from computing as we know it. Our quantum software requires fundamentally different techniques and approaches based on superposition, interference and entanglement. Ultimately, our research will result in better, faster and more reliable computer systems for society. Our research group is involved in QuSoft, the new Dutch research centre for quantum software.
