The Quantum Information Group at University College London (UCL) invites applications for the postdoctoral research position associated to the EPSRC project Scrambling of Quantum Information in Many-Body Systems, working with Dr Lluis Masanes. The goals of this project are: to establish realistic time scales for equilibration processes, to quantify the depth/strength of thermalisation processes, to study the effect of causal structure and conformal symmetry in the previous problems, and to construct unitary designs generated by time-independent interactions.

The successful candidate will conduct research towards the goals of this project and his/her own goals, with the possibly of collaborating with other members of the Quantum Information Theory Group at UCL (Sougato Bose, Dan Browne, Toby Cubitt, Jonathan Oppenheim and Alessio Serafini).

This post is funded for three years in the first instance, and it could start at the earliest convenience of the applicant.
