PhD position in Multipartite entanglement research

Job type: 
Application deadline: 
Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Requirements:
-M.Sc. degree in physics
-declaration of starting Ph.D. studies at the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics, and Iformatics, University of Gdańsk from 1 of Oct. 2018.
-knowledge of quantum mechanics certified by an appropriate exam mark.
-knowledge of English sufficient to read and create scientificc article.
-Interest in quantum iformation

Description of tasks:

The project is called "Complex entangled states: production and analysis". It is focused on many-body entangled states, in which nonclassicality is exhibited with subcorrelations, i.e., correlations between subsets of constituents. Tasks performed by the PhD student include
-concept development and studies on novel, subcorrelation-based Bell inequalities
-research on apllication of generalized cluster states in quantum computing and efficiency of such calculations
-research on some error-correcting codes and and optical implementation of stabilizer operator measurements.
-Study of sef-testing of chosen Bell inequalities
Contract terms and conditions
A valid application should include
-a scan of MSc in Physics
- scientific CV including all nonstandard activities, such as competition participation, awards, etc.
-One or more recommedation letter
-Report on marks obtained during Bachelor and Master studies
