Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is a joint computational research center with Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh. Established in 1986, PSC is supported by several federal agencies, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and private industry.

PSC provides university, government and industrial researchers with access to several of the most powerful systems for high-performance computing, communications and data storage available to scientists and engineers nationwide for unclassified research. PSC advances the state of the art in high-performance computing, communications and data analytics and offers a flexible environment for solving the largest and most challenging problems in computational science.

We are looking forward to collaborating with you on simulating the ground states of Rydberg atoms using Convolutional Neural Network wave-functions.

The Rydberg atom array is a good candidate for simulating quantum many-body systems experimentally. A numerical investigation on the Rydberg atom array has a direct comparison to the experiment result. Recently, neural network variational ansatz shows high accuracy in solving quantum many-body systems. For example, a convolutional neural network with a finite-sized convolution filter can simulate a many-body spin model with a finite correlation length. We are interested in the application of the convolutional neural network on solving the Rydberg array on the triangular lattice.

Our internships offer the opportunity to:

  • Gain valuable experience and knowledge in research computing.
  • Network with leaders in academia and industry to form valuable relationships.
  • Publish in peer-reviewed journals and at prominent conferences.
  • Gain experience on AI for quantum science

Job Requirements     
Successful candidates will have the following:

  • Candidates must be pursuing an undergraduate (bachelor’s) or Master’s degree. Examples of relevant majors are physics, computer science or any major with a significant computational/programming component
  • Have knowledge of quantum mechanics
  • Excellent communication skills and ability to work in a team environment.
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and creativity.

This internship is open to anyone currently enrolled in an undergraduate program. This is an in-person position and all work must be conducted while in the United States. Our offices are located at 300 South Craig Street, Pittsburgh, PA.Interested? Please send your resume to ywg@psc.edu before March 8, 2024.
