Let's take a look at your sentence and break it down:

I would like to know what [something about qualifications needed] for this job.

Let's ignore, for the moment the why of it and get to the nitty-gritty -- you want to know something:

I would like to know what X.

What is it that you would like to know? You want to know what qualifications you need:

I would like to know what qualifications I need.

Note that if you aren't the person applying for the position or if you prefer a little less personal style, you could also say:

I would like to know what qualifications are needed.

Now, the person reading this may be wondering what you're talking about -- qualifications to go to college or qualifications to join the police force or what. So you can add that in:

I would like to know what qualifications I need to apply.

Great. Now they know you want to apply for something. But what do you want to apply for? A membership in the club? A credit card? A job?

I would like to know what qualifications I need to apply for this job.

Now, having said all that, let me suggest that when you join a new community, you might want to take a moment to find out what it's about and how you should act before just jumping in and bugging people. This question is actually much more suited to the English Language Learners site than ELU.

Assuming you have not yet applied for the job, the proper sentence would be:

I would like to know what qualifications I need to apply for this job.

A-C are not quite correct because you never will be applied to a job. You may have already applied, but you won't be applied.

I'm new on this site, but get the feeling this might get moved to English learners. In any case you don't need to use -- shouldn't use in fact -- the verb 'to be' in your sentence:

I would like to know what qualifications I need to apply for the job.

(The verb following the verb 'need' will use the infinitive form.) Hope that helps.

The context is a little unclear.

Assuming you are applying for the job, then you should say something like so.

I would like to know what << qualifications I need to apply >> for this job.

Or, depending on your personal style preference, possibly << qualifications I need in order to apply >>.
