We offer several postdoctoral research positions in quantum information theory. Potential research topics include the following:

The Theoretical Physics Group in the Department of Physics at the University of Warwick is seeking to recruit an Assistant Professor with an outstanding research track record in one or more relevant areas such as quantum computation, simulation, verification, sensing and imaging. Research plans that mesh closely with on-going activities or those opening new avenues for the Group will be welcome.

The Institute of Physics II at the University of Cologne is looking for junior talents with expertise in the field of device physics to extend strategically the institute's research spectrum of experimental condensed matter physics. The candidate will actively participate in the teaching of experimental condensed matter physics and quantum technologies and be part of the Cluster of Excellence ”Matter and Light for Quantum Computing” (ML4Q) which is a cooperation by the universities of Cologne, Aachen, Bonn and the Forschungszentrum Jülich.

The Quantum Information Science Group at Seoul National University (SNU) is accepting applications for one postdoctoral researcher position in the field of quantum computation. The position shall be available from May 1, 2022. The actual start date is, however, negotiable.

The postdoctoral researcher shall be under the joint supervision of both Research Associate Professor Yong Siah Teo and Professor Hyunseok Jeong. Initially, he/she is particularly expected to work closely and productively with Yong Siah to solve problems concerning (but not limited to)

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to work on theoretical aspects related to the mathematics and physics of open quantum many-body systems. The research will focus in particular on:

- the development of numerical methods based on tree-tensor networks

- the simulation of open many-body quantum systems with long-range interaction

- the characterisation of quantum phases and phase transitions

Two postdoctoral research positions are open at the Centre for Quantum Technologies and MajuLab, Singapore and at the LPMMC, Grenoble, France. The research focus is on theoretical studies of the physical resource cost of quantum computing, with considerations spanning from fundamental thermodynamic requirements to practical experimental demands, and from small-scale NISQ devices to full-stack large-scale quantum computers.

The goal is to bring together young and experienced quantum researchers to promote the sharing of knowledge and ideas within the community. For this purpose, we provide a platform for young researchers to learn new topics and improve presentation skills.

QTech project #2

We're excited to announce the 2nd QProject! During this series, we will be listening to research projects by grad students and our new guest will be Shubham Kumar, from Shanghai University! With the title of "Entanglement in Quantum Memristors", his talk will conclude with a study of entangled quantum memristors based on superconducting circuits.

Work type: Full time
Location: Sydney, NSW, Australia
Categories: Post doctoral research fellow

Quantum communication is a translational technology that will make an impact on society long before quantum computation will. First commercial offerings of secure quantum communication solutions based on heavily attenuated laser pulses are already on the market. In this project, we plan to design a compact quantum communication system that could be deployed onboard a low-Earth-orbit satellite. The security of all communicated data will be at the forefront of the new design. The project will be largely theoretical in nature.
