The focus of the PhD project will be the development of quantum algorithms with the aim of near-term implementation on NISQ machines. The project will primarily involve the theoretical analysis of quantum algorithms and their implementations, but it could also involve the study of structural features of quantum information theory relevant to the NISQ regime (such as quantum entanglement and other resources).
Applications are invited from candidates with or expecting a minimum of a UK first class or Masters degree (or equivalent) in Computing, Physics or Mathematics or a related discipline, and some familiarity with quantum theory. Computing and programming experience is particularly welcome, but not essential.
