quantum simulation

The Circuit QED Quantum Science group is a new experimental research group in the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), led by Associate Professor and ARC Future Fellow, Nathan Langford. A/Prof Langford has recently set up a new research direction for UTS in circuit quantum electrodynamics (circuit QED), establishing the brand new Millikelvin Quantum Science laboratory at UTS with state-of-the-art purpose-built facilities for experiments in circuit QED and microwave quantum optics.

The project is to carry out theoretical research on the physics of trapped Rydberg ions and atoms within the ERyQSenS-consortium (funded through the QuantERA call) which is formed by European experimental and theoretical research group.

The positions are in the group of Dimitris G. Angelakis (www.dimitrisangelakis.org). We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a strong research background and a PhD in theoretical quantum optics/physics and/or quantum information and/or quantum many-body physics/quantum condensed matter.

Host Institute: Heidelberg University

Project Supervisor: Prof Fred Jendrzejewski

Starting Date: As soon as possible

Quantum simulation has recently established itself as an area of study in quantum physics that merges fundamental and applied questions. Such an interaction results in a more operational understanding of some aspects of quantum mechanics in terms of nature description. The idea to simulate the dynamics of a quantum system by a quantum device was first introduced by Richard Feynman in a seminal article in 1982 and developed in different frameworks, from quantum optics to condensed matter physics.
