Postdoc position in theoretical quantum information science is available at the Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies (QOT) at the University of Warsaw. Successful candidate will work within the project ExTRaQT (Experiment and Theory of Resources in Quantum Technologies), funded by the QuantERA ERA-NET Cofund in Quantum Technologies. ExTRaQT is a consortium of mathematicians, theoretical and experimental physicists as well as molecular spectroscopists that will develop the theoretical and experimental foundations for quantum resource manipulation and, in a close collaboration across these fields, demonstrate experimentally key elements of quantum scale heat engines and apply these concepts to gain new insights into quantum dynamics of bio-molecular systems.
Profile of the candidates:
Postdoc candidates should have a PhD degree in physics or related area, and have research expertise in at least one of the following topics: quantum resource theories, quantum thermodynamics, quantum heat engines
The Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies (QOT), offers an open and friendly research environment, with access to all the facilities available within the Centre of New Technologies (CeNT), an interdisciplinary research center established within the University of Warsaw to gather international researchers of different backgrounds and experience, in order to conduct state-of-the-art research in biological, chemical and physical sciences. Successful candidate will work within the Quantum Resources and Information Laboratory, led by Dr. Alexander Streltsov, yet in close collaboration with other members of the ExTRaQT consortium.
Earliest starting date is 1 June 2022. The duration of the contract is 1 year.
Inquiries can be sent to Dr. Alexander Streltsov, firstname.lastname@example.org
