Post-Doctoral position in quantum metrology and sensing

Job type: 
Application deadline: 
Friday, September 9, 2016
Research group: 
Quantum Information Science

Applications are invited for one Postdoctoral Research Assistant in quantum metrology and sensing. The Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) will work with graduate students and other PDRAs in the quantum information science group of Dr. Animesh Datta at the University of Warwick. The group is part of two of the four UK Quantum Technology Hubs. The post is available initially for fixed-term duration of 24 months, with the possibility of extension for another 12 months. The starting date is expected to be Autumn 2016.

The post will develop theoretical techniques for quantum-enhanced sensing (quantum metrology) of multiple parameters. Particular emphasis is to be placed on designing novel schemes using methods from quantum and classical information theory, and analysing them using methods from estimation theory. It will also develop methods amenable to practical implementation with emerging quantum technologies by combating decoherence effects in these schemes, for instance by employing strategies from quantum error correction and quantum control.

Application deadline : September 09, 2016.
