PhD position in Quantum Communication and Decoding

The newly established Group of Quantum Optical Communication and Metrology of Roma Tre University in Rome, Italy, is looking for a PhD candidate starting in the academic year 2023/2024. The PhD fellowship is financed by the EU and the National Recovery Plan, via a research project on Quantum Communication led by the Principal Investigator, Dr. Matteo Rosati.

The prospective candidate will have the opportunity to do research in theoretical physics / applied mathematics, with the objective of studying the decoding of information transmitted using quantum systems. Apart from the intrinsic theoretical interest, such objective comes with a strong practical motivation: the discovery of a decoder design that can be built with current technology would significantly improve current optical-fiber and free-space communication rates, as well as impact security and entanglement-assisted transmission.

The ideal candidate has a M.Sc. Degree in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science or Engineering, with a good mathematical background.
The call is expected to open within summer 2023, possibly as soon as June.

Interested candidates are kindly requested to contact Dr. Matteo Rosati at for further details, attaching a CV (best within the month of May).
