The entanglement of quantum objects can take surprising forms. Quantum physicists at the University of Innsbruck have investigated several flavors of entanglement in four trapped ions and report their results in the journal Nature Physics. Their study promotes further developments towards quantum computing and a deeper understanding of the foundations of quantum mechanics.<!--eec6d63ab9254743b4cb276771aa8eaa-->

The position, for 2 years, is within the project QUITEMAD (Quantum Information Technologies Madrid) web site:, funded through the Programas de Actividades de I+D de la Comunidad de Madrid, which involves 5 Quantum Information groups.

Candidates will have a Phd degree (compulsory), and also will count with a mathematics or physics undergraduate degree and good level of English (writen and spoken).

New methods of understanding complexity and algorithm design rely heavily on abstract methods whose connection with underlying physical systems remain, in many cases, woefully under-illustrated. This workshop brings together physicists, computer scientists, and mathematicians to explore the connection between quantum information science, quantum complexity, and potential physical implementations.
