The quantum information theory group of Dagmar Bruss at the Institute
for Theoretical Physics, University of Duesseldorf (Germany) is inviting
applications for 2 postdoctoral positions and 3 PhD positions. Some of
the positions are BMBF-funded via cooperative research projects
(QSolid, QuKuK). The successful candidates will collaborate with
national and international partners. The specific research aims
are as follows:
1) Postdoc on quantum resources for quantum computing: the successful
candidate will work on scalability, quantum error correction,
and quantum resource theories.
2) Postdoc on QKD in quantum networks: the successful candidate will
work on quantum networks and quantum correlations, with a particular
focus on secure communication and QKD.
3) PhD position on QKD in quantum networks: the successful candidate
will work on quantum networks and quantum correlations, with a particular
focus on secure communication and QKD (jointly with the above postdoc).
4) PhD position on quantum information theory: research topics include
resource theories, measurement theory, and entanglement theory.
5) PhD position on security analysis for applied QKD: the successful candidate
will investigate the security of concrete QKD-implementations, i.e.
taking into account statistical and trusted systematical errors in a
Applicants for the postdoctoral positions need to have prior research
experience in quantum information theory. Experience in the specified
research area is desirable.
Candidates should send a full CV including certificates and a list of
publications to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please specify clearly for which position you are applying.
(Further information on the positions is available upon request.)
Please include electronic contact details of two referees.
Deadline is September 9th 2022.
Later applications will be considered in case the positions will

(partially negotiable). - We are looking forward to receiving
The salary is based on the German TV-L E13 pay scale. All appointments
will be for three years, at 100% E13 for the postdoctoral researchers,
and at 50% E13 for the PhD students.
