Postdoctoral Research Associate

University of Bristol - Faculty of Science

Location: Bristol
Salary: £34,304 to £43,434 Grade I/J, per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 4th August 2022
Closes: 17th August 2022
Job Ref: ACAD106242

Salary: 

The post-holder will perform cutting-edge academic theoretical research at the intersection of quantum information science and the foundations of quantum mechanics. Areas of particular interest include, but are not restricted to: quantum nonlocality, Bell’s inequalities, quantum frames of reference as well as quantum measurements, quantum thermodynamics, quantum resource theories and pre- and post-selection/weak measurements.

What will you be doing?

The post holder will work alongside the PI and his group to carry out research in foundations of quantum mechanics. This will involve contributing to research which could include, for example: study of quantum nonlocality, deriving new types of Bell inequalities, extending our understanding of quantum frames of reference and their implications, clarifying the relationship between entanglement, nonlocality and cryptography, and extending the study of nonlocality and entanglement beyond quantum mechanics.

The post-holder will be expected to have a high degree of autonomy within the overall framework of the project. The post-holder will also have the possibility to interact with the other groups working on quantum information both in Mathematics and Engineering, comprising both theoreticians and experimentalists, as well as with the other members of the School of Physics.

Administratively, the post holder will be expected to write academic paper(s) and give internal and external talks and seminars and perform any other reasonable tasks that contribute positively to the success of quantum information research at Bristol.

You should apply if

You have (or are about to obtain) a PhD in foundations of quantum mechanics / quantum information and ideally postdoctoral experience.

Funding is available for 24 months for this vacancy.
