The task of the successful candidate is to describe light-matter interaction in and around nanostructures. Both, the material, and the electromagnetic field will be treated in a quantum fashion. The project is part of the Cooperative Research Center SFB 1375 Nonlinear Optics down to Atomic Scales (NOA) In NOA we aim at a close cooperation with experimental groups.

Phasecraft is the quantum algorithms company. We are building the mathematical foundations for quantum computing applications that solve real-world problems. Founded in 2019 by Toby Cubitt, Ashley Montanaro and John Morton, we are based in London and Bristol, UK. In 2023 we completed a £13m Series A funding round led by leading Silicon Valley deep tech VC, Playground Global.

Topological states exhibit protected currents and robust localization that can stabilize unique functions in stochastic and biological systems. This exciting and growing field opens fundamental theoretical questions in non-Hermitian and dissipative physics with new mathematical and physical properties.

A key challenge in quantum computing involves dealing with errors which may arise from environmental noise or imperfections in the hardware. Error mitigation and correction strategies are essential to the development of practical quantum computing devices. In recent years, photonic quantum computing has emerged as a promising platform for quantum computing and demonstrating a genuine quantum advantage. Quantum states of light (QSoL) are robust to environmental noise and can be easily manipulated and measured using simple optical components at room temperature. Additionally, QSoL can be transmitted over long distances using optical fibres, which makes them an attractive option for quantum communication and networking.

The International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials is a joint PhD program between the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden, Germany, Technische Universität Dresden and the University of St Andrews, Scotland. We seek to recruit multiple PhD students in 2024 to a range of inter‐institutional research projects in the broadly defined field of quantum materials, specifically with a focus on condensed-matter physics and solid-state chemistry.
