Two 16 month theoretical postdoctoral positions in the topic of noisy quantum information processing are opening at the Department of Mathematics in Brunel University, west London, to start in summer 2013. The ideal candidates would be independent and creative researchers with interests in noisy quantum computation or quantum information processing, interpreted in the broadest possible sense to include topics such as fault tolerance, the robustness of specific quantum algorithms to noise, the classical simulation of noisy quantum systems, and links to foundational issues such as entanglement theory and hidden variable models. Candidates with interests in any of these areas are welcome to apply. It is anticipated that the successful applicants will be given the maximal possible independence within the remit of the grant, which is funded by the UK's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research council.
The application form is available at https://jobs.brunel.ac.uk/WRL/pages/main.jsf - please search for reference "BHA0345-1".
Interviews will be held in early May, with the posts starting in summer 2013, at the latest by the end of August.
Informal enquiries may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. These positions were previously advertised at the University of Strathclyde, but will now be moving to Brunel University in London. Please note that as a consequence of UK employment regulations preference will have to be given to applicants with an existing UK or European passport or work visa.
