3-year PhD studentship

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Sunday, February 23, 2020

Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD studentship (UK/EU priority) to commence in October 2020.

Title: Quantum simulation of complex quantum processes on superconducting qubits

The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Technology, and will be supervised by Dr Jaewoo Joo, Dr Arseni Goussev and Dr Andrew Burbanks.

Candidates applying for this project may be eligible to compete for one of a small number of bursaries available; these cover tuition fees at the UK/EU rate for three years and a stipend in line with the UKRI rate (£15,009 for 2019/2020). Bursary recipients may be eligible for £1,500 for project costs/consumables.

The work on this project will:

* investigate unique and surprising quantum phenomenon called quantum backflow.
* develop a new quantum-classical simulation tool to find the minimum energy in quantum systems.
* deliver innovative quantum algorithms with machine learning techniques to explore the quantum phenomena beyond the state-of-the-art supercomputer simulation.

Informal inquiries about the position can be made to Dr Jaewoo Joo (jaewoo.joo@port.ac.uk).
