NOTE: the first PhD round requires applications to be submitted by 18 April 2021.
Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) is an English-speaking international graduate only research university, located just outside of Moscow. Established in collaboration with M.I.T., Skoltech integrates the best Russian scientific traditions with Western research practices.
PhD Fellowships are now being offered to work in Skoltech’s Quantum Lab – lead by Prof Jacob Biamonte at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology.
The Quantum Systems Unit, headed by Prof. Thomas Busch, has an opening for a theoretical post-doctoral scholar in the area of quantum simulations using cold atomic systems. More information can be found at
For our newly formed theory division located in Toronto, Canada, we are seeking an excellent research scientist to work on various theoretical aspects of quantum computer design and development. This involves, but is not limited to, development of new photonic-based quantum computing architectures, implementation of quantum algorithms to be compatible with the ORCA photonic design and development of tailored fault-tolerant error correcting codes. An important milestone on the way to the photonic fault-tolerant universal quantum computer is a noisy near-term device with limited fault tolerance capabilities. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to its development in close collaboration with the ORCA quantum hardware group.
This is the fourteenth in a series of conferences that aims to bring together the leading researchers in the areas of quantum computation, quantum communication and quantum cryptography. TQC covers all theoretical aspects of quantum information.
