The quantum group in Malta is looking to recruit an experienced postdoctoral researcher in the field of topological optomechanical devices. This is a two-year position funded by the Julian Schwinger Foundation.

This project aims to investigate optomechanical arrays as a platform for the amplification, processing, and routing of phonons. It will feature close collaboration with Dr Vittorio Peano (Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, Erlangen).

Subject area Information and Communication Technologies are essential to modern society as the internet is pervading all aspects of our lives. Quantum mechancis imposes a fundamental limit to the communication rates, whose determination is a pivotal challenge. Given the amount of sensitive information sent through the internet, secure communications are essential to our society.

This Research Thematic Program's main goal is to further develop the study of operator algebras and their relation with quantum information. To do so, we plan to reunite both leading experts and Ph.D. students in mathematics and mathematical physicists with interests in seemingly disparate fields of Noncommutative Algebra, Dynamical Systems, Groups, Harmonic Analysis, Topology and Quantum Theory. This way, we intend to further stimulate the rich interplay between these areas of mathematics and the relatively young field of quantum information theory.
