The Quantum Computing Lab in the Centre for Quantum Computation and Intelligent Systems at the University of Technology, Sydney invites applications for PhD positions and expressions of interest for postdocs.

The QC lab works on a wide range of topics including, quantum Shannon theory, computational complexity, many-body physics, quantum error-correction, quantum simulation, and quantum computing architectures. We are particularly interested in mathematically rigorous and interdisciplinary approaches to these topics.

The Quantum Computing Laboratory is situated in the School of Software in the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, as such the PhD positions would be in Computer Science. However, we welcome applications from any motivated students with a strong background in Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, or Engineering. We are particularly looking for students who are enthusiastic, have some level of mathematical maturity, and a willingness to work in collaborations that cross disciplines.

PhD student applicants upload a CV at before the 24th of March 2014 to meet the semester 2 enrolment deadline of the 31st of March 2014, postdoc expressions of interest for postdoc positions can be sent at any time to (any of):
