We invite applications for a postdoctoral position in quantum information theory at the Free University of Berlin. The position is partially funded by the PASQuanS project of the Quantum Flagship initiative, securing additional scientific visibility. The successful candidate will work as part of the research group led by Professor Jens Eisert at the FU Berlin. The position is a full E13 position initially for two years, but may be extended.
We are currently entering a new technological era where quantum mechanics is used not only to predict physical behaviour but increasingly to exploit quantum resources in applications such as Quantum Communication, Cryptography, Computation and Metrology. Due to the probabilistic nature of quantum measurements, statistical inference based on measurement data plays an increasing role in analysing and validating the results of quantum experiments.
