Future developments in the field of Quantum Computing and Quantum control are eagerly anticipated and include the discovery of new algorithms which could efficiently employ quantum computers, especially the relatively small size devices available today and in the near future; the development of improved threshold theorems to determine the requirements for scalable quantum computing; security proofs for a number of the alternate proposals for secure quantum communications; further elucidation of the various measures of entanglement, their relationship, and how they can be efficiently extract

The original motivation to build a quantum computer came from Feynman, who imagined a machine capable of simulating generic quantum mechanical systems—a task that is believed to be intractable for classical computers. Such a machine could have far-reaching applications in the simulation of many-body quantum physics in condensed-matter, chemical and high-energy systems.

Applications are invited for the post of Research Scientist in the Quantum Information Group at Toshiba Research Europe Ltd. Research will be conducted on novel components and systems for quantum cryptography and is mainly experimental in character.

Candidates should hold a PhD in Physics, Electronic Engineering or a related discipline and demonstrated outstanding achievement in experimental quantum cryptography or quantum optics. Experience of optoelectronic components, fibre optic systems, digital electronics and control software would be an advantage.
