Several PhD positions in quantum information theory

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Thursday, April 30, 2020

Research group: 

Tomamichel group

I am looking for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows for my new group at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT) in Singapore. My group will be part of the vibrant international research community around CQT. Topics of interest include quantum Shannon theory and statistics, resource theories, quantum cryptography and other technical/mathematical aspects of quantum information.

This is an open-ended call and I will consider high-quality applications as they come in.
The following types of positions are available:

1. CQT PhD program: I am looking for Physics or Computer Science graduates with strong interest in the mathematical aspects of quantum information, and the skills required to pursue technical questions in quantum Shannon theory and cryptography. The CQT PhD program offers generous funding and great flexibility to its students.

2. NUS Electrical & Computer Engineering PhD program: I am looking for strong Engineering graduates with background in either information theory or cryptography and a keen interest in the intersection between engineering and quantum information. This degree has a significant coursework component.

3. Postdoctoral Research Fellowships: I am particularly looking for researchers with a strong track-record working on technical aspects of quantum Shannon theory and cryptography, but strong candidates with proven expertise in other aspects of quantum information are also encouraged to apply. Successful applicants will be granted significant independence concerning their research focus and receive generous travel funding. They will be expected to contribute to the group, for example by co-supervising student projects. Positions will initially be offered for two years, with the option to extend.

Please contact me by email at cqtmpt@nus.edu.sg to discuss any of these opportunities further.
