Term: Fixed (24 months)
Applications are invited to fill three open positions as postdoctoral research associates to work with the Quantum Optics and Quantum Many-body Systems team at the University of Strathclyde.
The open positions are to work on three related projects:
We are seeking highly motivated theoretical researchers who will be responsible for research on each of these projects, developing novel insight into many-body physics, developing new techniques to benchmark and verify quantum simulators, and developing quantum algorithms and quantum simulation protocols targeting problems relevant to other academic disciplines and industry.
The successful applicants will be based in the Department of Physics under the supervision of Prof. Andrew Daley, within the Computational Nonlinear and Quantum Optics group at Strathclyde, collaborating also with experimental teams led by Prof. Stefan Kuhr and by Dr. Jonathan Pritchard. Candidates will have a PhD (or close to completion) in theoretical or computational many-body physics or quantum computing. Technical knowledge of computational methods, especially tensor network techniques for many-body dynamics, or the design of quantum algorithms would be of advantage. An ability to prepare scientific publications and present research outcomes at local, national and international research meetings is expected.
Each of these posts will be available from October 2019.
Informal enquiries should be directed to Prof. Andrew Daley (email@example.com).
