The Institute for Logic, Language & Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam, and the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) are looking for a PhD candidate in the area of quantum cryptography.

The aim of the PhD project is to develop new quantum-cryptographic protocols (beyond the task of key distribution) and explore their limitations. An example of an active research is position-based quantum cryptography.

Two Ph.D. positions in theoretical quantum computing at Virginia Commonwealth University

The Quantum Computing Lab at Virginia Commonwealth University currently has two Ph.D. positions available. Tuition and stipend are provided.

Requirements: A background in quantum mechanics or quantum computing is preferred but not necessary; the requirements are a Master's degree in theoretical computer science or a related field, elementary linear algebra (vector spaces, eigenvalues and eigenvectors), and a willingness to be puzzled by the oddities of quantum mechanics.
