The school "Nanotechnology meets Quantum Information (NanoQI)" provides a broad overview of different implementations of quantum information processing and quantum technologies. The school is aimed at PhD students and young postdocs interested in quantum information processing and quantum technologies.
This position is advertised across specialisations, and includes the following possible research topics:
1. Quantum information theory.
2. Quantum neural networks and quantum learning algorithms.
3. Quantum computation.
4. Graph theoretic measures applied to quantum information processing, non-contextuality and generalised physical theories, and to quantum information capacities.
5. Quantum contextuality, quantum entanglement, Bell inequalities and related topics.
6. Quantum cryptography.
The Schmid College of Science and Technology at Chapman University is advertising teaching/research postdoctoral fellowships (see the advert below). The teaching portion is in our new Grand Challenges Initiative. The research component can be in any group within Schmid College, which includes the Institute for Quantum Studies. The institute is lef by Yakir Aharonov and Jeff Tollaksen, and includes faculty members Matt Leifer and Justin Dressel.
Quantum information theory is at the intersection of physics, computer science and mathematics. While its potential is still in the way of being developed, what we already know suggests that it may have a dramatic impact on everyday technologies. Given the completely new logic underlying a quantum computer, new mathematical and computer science tools are required to optimize its architecture and then fully exploit its computational potential.
