Uncompromisable information security can be only achieved by relying on unshakeable scientific principles in mathematics or physics. It is therefore directly connected to progress in fundamental research in both of these area and requires constant progress to advance.
However, to translate these results into useable technology and to maintain everyday security within the current technology, is a just as important goal to achieve.
The Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics (SITP) invites applications for a postdoctoral scholar position in quantum information science. Areas of interest include core quantum information subjects such as algorithms, communication and fault-tolerance, in addition to connections with other branches of physics.
A curriculum vitae, publication list, statement of research interests and three letters of recommendation are required. Applications should be uploaded to academicjobsonline.org.
