PhD Position in Quantum Technology at Imperial College London

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

As part of the Frontiers in Quantum Technology (FQT) Programme, applications are invited for a PhD position in our group at Imperial College London, United Kingdom. The position is fully funded, and includes an excellent salary, ranging between £35,653 - £42,857 per annum (note: this range is approximate only and may vary significantly depending on the exchange rate). More details can be found at the Employer web page above.

In particular, the project “Quantum computing and communication” (please, find it in the list of available projects) will be supervised by Prof Myungshik Kim and myself.

We are interested in the use of multi-dimensional quantum walks for the processing of quantum information, in particular in a scenario with only limited resources. Among the deliverables of our research, an important place is taken by the design of testable experimental setups in systems of linear optics. Theoretically, our investigation will provide the tools for the understanding of the resources needed in the simulation of a complex yet interesting quantum dynamical process.

For further information, feel free to contact me directly via email:

The closing date for applications is 29 January 2014 (midnight GMT).

Note: There is also a “Strong coupling for quantum control” project available under the same programme.
