Funded postdoctoral and PhD positions in quantum error correction

We are offering both a fully funded three-year postdoctoral position (E13) and a PhD position (E13 3/4) to highly motivated and well-qualified researchers who intend to conduct research in the field of quantum error correction and related fields. The scientific project will relate to the fundamentals of topological quantum error correcting codes as well as to near-term error mitigation in realistic quantum devices. The successful candidates will work as part of the research group led by Jens Eisert at the FU Berlin. For an overview of research activities, see

We are a highly active research group with a culture of open discussion, creative interdisciplinary thought and substantial international collaborations. We also have a strong track record in supporting academic careers, see

The positions have connections to the German BMBF initiative on quantum software, the European Quantum Flagship, and the excellence initiative MATH+.

All applications should be sent in electronic form to with the key word "QuantumErrorCorrection2020" in the subject line. Review of the applications will begin after September 28, 2020 and will continue until the positions are filled. Early submissions are appreciated. The start date is flexible.
