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 study of quantum coherent dynamics is currently one of the most active and exciting areas in physics. It holds the promise for the development of new technologies (quantum computing, quantum metrology,...) and, at the same time, has already delivered insights into the foundations of quantum mechanics. Its fast moving pace, in both theory and experiment, has attracted many young researchers and summer schools have become an integral part of the education and networking of students.

In conjunction with Leonardo MW Ltd, the Department of Computer Science is offering a fully funded PhD studentship at the University of York. Quantum detection is an emerging field which has been applied in the optical domains and is now being scaled to microwave frequencies to make “quantum radar”. A theoretical exploration of the subject is needed to determine the potential improvements in detection performance (e.g. range and robustness against noise) which quantum technology offers when compared to current “classical” detection methods.

We invite applications for a postdoctoral position in the Functional Materials Group at the University of Kent, under the supervision of Dr Gunnar Möller. We are looking for candidates with enthusiasm for numerical simulations to join an EPSRC funded research project. In this project, we will investigate the equilibrium and non-equilibrium many-body physics arising in time-reversal invariant topological band structures based on density matrix renormalisation group methods.

Application deadline:
