The newly established quantum information group at Freiburg University invites applications for PhD and postdoctoral positions.

We work on a broad array of topics in quantum information theory, many-body theory, and mathematical physics. In addition, we aim to strengthen our profile in other areas of applied math, in particular on problems related to compressed sensing, matrix completion and other topics in machine learning theory. Please visit our web site for further information.
