Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Tuesday, February 28, 2023

Position as PhD Research Fellow in Mathematics available at the Department of Mathematics, University of Oslo.

Starting date no later than October 1, 2023.

The fellowship period is 3 years. A fourth year may be considered with a workload of 25 % that may consist of teaching, supervision duties, and/or research assistance. This is dependent upon the qualification of the applicant and the current needs of the department.

We are looking for a talented student to work on mathematical aspects of quantum information theory within the areas of quantum Shannon theory and the theory of quantum entanglement.

At the Department of Mathematics, the candidate will be affiliated with the group working on Operator Algebras in Section 6 and be part of its vibrant and inclusive environment. The candidate will also have the opportunity to interact with other fellows and senior researchers from the Departments of Physics and Chemistry who are part of the QOMBINE project, which is an interdisciplinary project on the “Mathematics for quantum computation and manybody theory”.
