Open permanent position at Telecom ParisTech
Associate Professor on Quantum Information and Post Quantum Cryptography
The Quantum Information and Applications (IQA) group of Telecom Paristech is conducting a research activity centered on quantum information, quantum communication and cryptography. This research combines theoretical work on quantum information, communication and quantum cryptographic protocols with the development of an experimental platform allowing experimental demonstrations of quantum communication protocols.
Applications are invited for the above post to work with Professor Gerardo Adesso on an ERC Starting Grant project entitled “Genuine quantumness in cooperative phenomena” funded by the European Research Council. The principal goal of the project is to analyse and challenge the quantum-classical border from a jointly fundamental and applicative viewpoint. The project is expected to deliver novel tools for the characterisation of quantumness in composite systems and to develop novel platforms for its practical utilisation in quantum technology applications.
The school "Nanotechnology meets Quantum Information (NanoQI)" provides a broad overview of different implementations of quantum information processing and quantum technologies. The school is aimed at PhD students and young postdocs interested in quantum information processing and quantum technologies.
This position is advertised across specialisations, and includes the following possible research topics:
1. Quantum information theory.
2. Quantum neural networks and quantum learning algorithms.
3. Quantum computation.
4. Graph theoretic measures applied to quantum information processing, non-contextuality and generalised physical theories, and to quantum information capacities.
5. Quantum contextuality, quantum entanglement, Bell inequalities and related topics.
6. Quantum cryptography.
