Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Friday, September 20, 2019

Research group: 

Institute of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics, University of Gdansk

We offer two four-year PhD positioions in Quantum InformatioTheory. The grant is run by dr hab. Marcin Wieśniak and is titled "Complex Entagled states: production and analysis". The research plan includes:
-studyinng toric codes in higher dimension
-work towards an optical demonstration of measurement-based quantum computation and analysis of effects of various physical errors
-studyning new self-testing Bell inequalities
-recognigizing the role of modified Stokes parameters and their further generalization in identifying nonclassicality of bright vacuum states
-working towards new realizations of bound entangled states
-working towards realization of full rotationally invariant quantum codes for long distance quantum communication,
The project is of a theoretical nature, but will be realized in collaboration with experimental groups.
The winning candidate will receive a mounthly, tax-free scholarship of 3000 PLN, (to be compared with relatively low living costs in Poland).

A valid application should contain
-a scan of MSc in Physics
- scientific CV including all nonstandard activities, such as competition participation, awards, etc.
-One or more recommedation letters
-Report on marks obtained during Bachelor and Master studies
-A statement of the following: "Wyrażam zgodę na przetwarzanie moich danych osobowych zawartych w ofercie pracy dla potrzeb niezbędnych do realizacji procesu rekrutacji (zgodnie z ustawą o Ochronie Danych Osobowych Dz.
