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, causal structures, 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, clarifying the relationship between causal structures, entanglement, nonlocality and cryptography, and extending the study of causal structures beyond quantum mechanics, extending our understanding of resource theories and quantum thermodynamics and extending our understanding of causality in pre- and post-selected systems
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
A PhD (or about to obtain) in foundations of quantum mechanics / quantum information and ideally postdoctoral experience.
