Postdoctoral position in Optical Quantum Computing

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Thursday, November 30, 2023

Research group: 

The research group Q3 at the Department of Physics, led by Prof. Igor Jex, is an active and ambitious team with many international connections both in theory and experiments. It is a pioneering group in the study of quantum optics, networks and its applications, such as the theory and implementation of quantum walks and the formulation of the Gaussian Boson Sampling problem.

We are looking for a candidate to contribute to the theoretical side of a European project focussed on the development of quantum photonic architectures capable of scalable cluster state generation, and including testing and benchmarking of the implementation, as well as exploring quantum algorithms that can then be demonstrated on these platforms. Successful candidate will be working with several members of the research group, including Dr. Craig Hamilton. The work will be carried out in close collaboration with a number of leading experimental groups in Europe an forms a unique intellectual environment for creating exciting new ideas in the field.

Starting date is flexible, earliest possible is 1 January 2024.
