Post doctoral researcher in fault-tolerance theory for quantum computation

Basic information
Application deadline: 
21 Jul 2015

The Department of Physics and Astronomy is looking to appoint a Post-doctoral Research Associate to work on the EPSRC funded project "Towards fault-tolerant quantum computing with minimal resources" under direction of Dr Earl Campbell.

The project's goal is to quantify and reduce the resource cost of fault-tolerance protocols in quantum computation. The appointment is initially for 3 years. The project will leverage tools from physics, mathematics and computer science, and so applicants are welcomed with a training from any of these backgrounds.
