quantum information

PhD opportunities are available for work in quantum information theory at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
The main areas of interest are quantum walks and quantum games, with also possibility of work on quantum coding theory.
Applications are made centrally to the Irish Research Council via www.research.ie, but to discuss possible research topics,
please contact (soon!) Dr. M. Mc Gettrick at michael.mcgettrick@nuigalway.ie

The Quantum Information Group at University College London (UCL) invites applications for the postdoctoral research position associated to the EPSRC project Scrambling of Quantum Information in Many-Body Systems, working with Dr Lluis Masanes. The goals of this project are: to establish realistic time scales for equilibration processes, to quantify the depth/strength of thermalisation processes, to study the effect of causal structure and conformal symmetry in the previous problems, and to construct unitary designs generated by time-independent interactions.
