One Postdoc and two PhD positions in theoretical quantum information science are available at the Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies (QOT) at the University of Warsaw. Successful candidates will work in a team of theoretical physicists and mathematicians on fundamental features of quantum systems and their applications in quantum technology. Potential research topics include, but are not limited to:
- Quantum resource theories (entanglement, coherence, thermodynamics)
- Quantum communication and quantum computation
- Open quantum systems
A fully funded PhD position for EU citizens is offered for a project on “SpeedDemon: Quantum speed limits in thermodynamic processes and coherent control” in the School of Physics, Trinity College Dublin. The work will be supervised by Dr. Steve Campbell (quantumwizard.weebly.com) through a Starting Investigator Research Grant from Science Foundation Ireland. The project aim to design practical schemes to achieve the ultimate control of complex quantum systems.
The PhD project will be in the broad field of non-equilibrium quantum and classical many-body system, including cold atomic gases, quantum optical systems, glassy and driven systems, neural networks and machine learning, and systems at the interface of classical and quantum.
Areas of interest will be the study of the emergence of correlated dynamical states, phase transitions and collective phenomena, and the competition between classical and quantum effects, together with issues of thermalisation and non-ergodicity.
Applications are invited for a Ph.D. position at the Centre for Quantum Computer Science, University of Latvia, lead by prof. Andris Ambainis. The Centre is among the strongest European research groups in quantum algorithms and currently consists of 4 faculty members and 13 postdocs and graduate students.
