This taught MSc course offers a comprehensive overview of the emerging applications of quantum physics to information processing and quantum coherent devices. The course syllabus includes important topics such as:
- Quantum Information Science. This teaches how quantum phenomena may be used to process information in novel ways that outperform existing information processing technologies.
- Experimental Quantum and Atom Optics. This topic covers the key techniques used to generate and manipulate quantum coherence in real experimental systems.
NEC Laboratories America has an opening for a Research Staff Member in the Quantum IT group in Princeton, NJ. We invite applications from world-class candidates with an exceptional track record in quantum algorithms and/or quantum circuits and who are recognized as thought-leaders by the international research community. The position addresses practical challenges that arise in the design of efficient quantum circuits but also offers a considerable amount of freedom for finding novel quantum algorithms and for interacting with experimental physicists.
The School of Mathematics and Physics of Queen’s University Belfast seeks to appoint a Lecturer in Quantum Information Theory by March 1st 2011 or as soon as possible thereafter. The successful candidate will be expected to undertake research in Quantum Information Theory within the Centre for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics and to contribute to teaching in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. In addition the successful candidate will be expected to undertake administrative duties as assigned.
The Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (PI) seeks a creative individual with experience in both scientific research and information technology (IT) to fill a new hybrid research / IT position within the Institute. The successful applicant will bring his / her own vision to the position and help define it. A key aspect of the position is to assist PI’s scientific staff in making effective use of IT resources. We expect this position’s activities to evolve over time as needs and opportunities arise.
