Applications are invited for a PhD position on quantum causality, focussing on the characterization of nonclassicality in the presence of (definite and) indefinite causal order. The position is funded by the QuanTEdu-France (France 2030) project at Aix-Marseille Université in the Calcul Naturel (CANA) team of the computer science lab, Laboratoire d’Informatique et des Systèmes (LIS). The project will be supervised by Ravi Kunjwal (Marseille) with co-supervision by Ognyan Oreshkov (Brussels).

The interested candidate must be well-versed in the fundamentals of quantum information theory at the Master level, whether in computer science, physics, or related disciplines. Previous research experience in quantum information and/or familiarity with research on quantum causality is desirable.

The position is expected to start in September 2024 for a duration of 3 years. Please send a copy of your CV (1 page), a 2-page motivation letter, academic transcripts, and contact details (name/email/institution) of two academic references to The letters of reference should be sent directly by the letter writers to by the application deadline. The deadline for sending the complete application (including references) is April 30, 2024. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to a remote interview in May before a final offer is made.
