DESCRIPTION: Post-doctoral position at the Quantum Information Group of the University of Barcelona (Spain).

FIELD: The successful candidate is expected to have obtained a Ph.D. in Quantum Computation, quantum many-body physics or in the study of cold atomic systems. On top of this basic requirement, programming skills, deep knowledge of quantum field theory or a strong background in mathematics is certainly a plus.
