Applications are invited for a PhD position in theoretical quantum information and computation, working with Shashank Virmani at Brunel University London Mathematics department, in the UK. Deadline 26 May.
It is currently anticipated that the PhD will be on the theme of classical simulation of quantum systems, but this may evolve during the project if the student so wishes.
Both UK and overseas applicants are welcome to apply, although funding may be more competitive for non UK citizens.
Quantum mechanics has been a constant source of innovation for over a century, and is now opening the door to a new age of information technologies. Identifying the key quantum structures and developing new concepts and methods can accelerate the progress, facilitating the development of new information-processing protocols and the discovery of new connections with other areas of physics.
Early applications for 2017/2018 are now invited for PhD positions at the HKU CS Department, with opening in the Quantum Information, Foundations, and Technologies Group.
The deadline is September 1st 2016.
