About Me

I took the position of  the director of Foxconn Quantum Computing Center, Taiwan on January 04, 2021. 

I was an Associate Professor at the Centre for Quantum Software and Information (QSI) at University of Technology Sydney (UTS). I received an Australian Research Council (ARC) Future Fellowship from 2014-2018. 

My research interests include general topics in quantum information and computation. My scholar profiles can be found below. 


Program leaders at the Hon Hai (Foxconn) Quantum Computing Research Center, Taipei, Taiwan


The Hon Hai Quantum Computing Research Center is searching for qualified program leaders in the field of quantum information and computation. This includes, but not limited to, topics such as quantum complexity theory, quantum algorithms, quantum communication, and quantum systems and applications. The topical cooperation with local universities is strongly encouraged. We are looking for young upstart scientists with concrete ideas to establish her/his own independent research group. This position will accompany postdoc fellowship grants and access to research assistants from local universities.

The candidate should have a PhD in Physics, Computer Science or related fields and an established internationally recognised scientific profile in area of quantum computation. Further development of the existing research activities into the area of quantum communication, quantum simulation and processing of quantum information is expected.

Applicants should send their CV (including contact details of possible references) to Min-Hsiu Hsieh ( The positions will remain open until they are filled.
