Relativistic Quantum Information

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to work with Dr Ivette Fuentes on an EPSRC funded project on the overlap of quantum information theory and relativity. The research is aiming at exploiting relativistic effects to improve quantum information tasks and finding applications of quantum information to foundational questions in gravity. Candidates must be confident, organised, have good communication skills and enjoy working with a variety of different people across discipline boundaries.

Candidates must have a PhD, or equivalent, (or be near completion) in mathematics or physics and experience with quantum theory and relativity. Knowledge of quantum information theory, quantum optics and/or quantum field theory is also desirable. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in relativistic quantum information. As part of our commitment to promoting diversity we encourage applications from women.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr I Fuentes email: Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted. For information about the School of Mathematical Sciences, one of the most active in the UK, see:
