Phasecraft launches its 2022 Quantum Software Internship Programme



After our successful 2021 programme, we are delighted to launch our new Quantum Software Internship programme.


Who are we? Phasecraft is a quantum software company whose goal is to get the most out of near-term quantum computing hardware. Founded by Toby Cubitt, Ashley Montanaro and John Morton and based in Bristol and London, we deploy advanced theoretical and mathematical techniques to develop quantum computing applications that significantly outperform their classical counterparts for important practical tasks.


What will you do? As a Quantum Software Intern you will have the opportunity to join the Phasecraft team for a few (typically 2-3) months. Not only will you work on a technical research project focusing on quantum software, but you will also have the chance to experience life in a young and vibrant startup that is constantly pushing the boundaries of our knowledge of quantum computing. Past projects have ranged from theoretical work on quantum algorithms to writing code for real or simulated quantum hardware.

The internship is a paid position with a competitive salary. Interns are based with the Phasecraft team in our offices in Bristol and/or London. Internships usually take place over the summer months, though dates can be flexible.


Who are we looking for? As a Quantum Software Intern we expect you to have a keen interest in quantum computing and quantum information. You should have taken some taught courses on quantum computing, or have research experience in the area. Most previous interns have been undertaking a PhD on the theory of quantum computing, but we will also consider outstanding undergraduate students and those who are not currently enrolled in an academic programme.


How do you apply? Send us an email on including your CV, details of two referees, a covering letter and academic transcript by the closing date of 15th March 2022.


What happens then? We will review all applications, and aim to notify all applicants by 31st March 2022. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend an interview in April 2022, and final decisions will be made soon after that. We can be flexible with these timings if you have constraints on when you would need to know a decision - if so, please let us know in your application.


Small print. We welcome international applicants who are eligible for a Tier 5 UK visa.
