Quantum information theory is at the intersection of physics, computer science and mathematics. While its potential is still in the way of being developed, what we already know suggests that it may have a dramatic impact on everyday technologies. Given the completely new logic underlying a quantum computer, new mathematical and computer science tools are required to optimize its architecture and then fully exploit its computational potential.

The school will consist on a series of courses that aim to revise the fundamentals of quantum information, including cryptography, relating them to specific implementations in photonics with emphasis on the added value of reconfigurable devices. The Courses will also discuss the interfaces between different devices.

Applications are invited for a Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellowship in Quantum Computation (Theory) at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
In the first instance, please contact soon Dr. M. Mc Gettrick [michael.mcgettrick@nuigalway.ie] for initial discussions on the research programme.
