Institute of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics, University of Gdansk

We have an opening for a three-year postdoc position in foundations of quantum mechanics / quantum information theory at the University of Gdańsk, Poland with starting date 1st January 2018.

The position will be financed under the project “Quantum correlations – from few to many particles” founded by the Polish National Science Center under BEETHOVEN programme.

Scope of research for the project include:

*Operational definitions and measures of multipartite correlations
*New improved procedures for quantum state reconstruction
*Many-particle entanglement detection with limited information on correlations
*Non-classical correlations being more robust to experimental imperfections and quantum metrology

The candidate must have a Ph.D. in physics and will preferably have experience with the above research subjects.

The gross salary will be roughly 5 000 PLN / month with access to travel funds as well. Taxes and the employee's contribution to social and health insurance must be deducted from that amount. In comparison to other European countries Poland is a relatively cheap place to live.

Application deadline is 30 November 2017 .
