We are looking to appoint a motivated researcher to work with Dr. Madalin Guta and Prof. Juan P. Garrahan on the EPSRC funded project entitled “Statistical Theory of Controlled Quantum Dynamics”.

The project aims to develop a new framework for statistical inference with finitely correlated states, and to apply the mathematical results to the identification and estimation of quantum open systems. The team will work on establishing central limit and concentration results for quantum processes, exploiting dynamical phase transitions for quantum enhanced metrology, applying input-output control techniques towards optimal measurement design, and developing statistical learning methods of time-dependent parameters.

The researcher will be an integral part of an interdisciplinary team based in the School of Mathematical Sciences and the School of Physics and Astronomy, and will actively contribute to the research activities at the overlap of the broad areas of quantum information, statistics and metrology, quantum open systems and non-equilibrium dynamics, and quantum control.
