We discuss the use of quantum simulation to study an N-flavor theory of interacting relativistic fermions in (1+1) dimensions on noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ)-era machines. The case of two flavors is particularly interesting as it can be mapped to the Hubbard model. We derive the appropriate qubit Hamiltonians and associated quantum circuits. We compare classical simulation and density matrix renormalization group/time-evolving blocked decimation calculations with the results of quantum simulation on various platforms for N=2 and 4-flavors. We demonstrate that the four steps needed for calculations of real-time scattering can be implemented using current NISQ devices.
