Research group: 

Quantum Information @ Imperial College

We are recruiting an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) to work in the Marie Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) “Applications and Hardware for Photonic Quantum Information Processing (AppQInfo)”. The ITN will provide multidisciplinary training culminating in PhDs awarded by Imperial College London.

The goal of AppQInfo is to train a top-class cohort of ESRs, that will become the future R&D staff within the area of photonic Quantum Information Processing. We will create and consolidate links between strategic industry partners such as IBM Zurich, NTT and IDQ and leading academic partners including Universities of Warsaw, Vienna, Paderborn, Waterloo, Geneve, Sorbonne, Oxford, Padova and Bruxelles by means of common engagement in research and training courses. This will result in the new understanding of nature and creation of new technologies in quantum communication and quantum simulations.

A crucial feature of the programme will be the close interaction with partners in both industry and academia and projects will involve a high degree of teamwork and interdisciplinary research, including secondments at a partner organisation.

The ESR is expected to work closely within Imperial and the whole network.
