PhD + Postdoc positions in Open systems/Quantum information theory at Center For Theoretical Physics of Polish Academy of Sciences (Warsaw)

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Sunday, August 30, 2020

Fully founded 3-year theory PhD and Postdoc positions available soon in the group of Prof. Jarek Korbicz within OPUS project "Novel approach to decoherence and information transfer studies in open quantum systems" founded by the National Science Center of Poland.

This is an exciting possibility to work on truly foundational topics in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere of a small research institute. The broad research topic is novel application of quantum information techniques to studies of quantum open systems. The main line will be concentrated around the recently studied advanced forms of decoherence such as quantum Darwinism and Spectrum Broadcast Structures and their role in the quantum-to-classical transition. Candidates (esp. for the Postdoc position) are expected to have a solid background in quantum open systems, some experience with quantum information theory would also be appreciated.

The expected starting date is October 1sth, 2020 or perhaps a bit later. The formal announcements will be published soon but due to the extraordinary situation plus the need for the PhD candidate to be accepted to the Doctoral School, we encourage all interested candidates to send their CV and a publication list to as soon as possible. Please indicate for what position you are applying for.
