As part of the project Quantum Information Structure of Spacetime (QISS; https://www.qiss.fr ) project, funded by the John Templeton Foundation. Along with pursuing specific topics in collaboration with members of the Quantum Group in the Department of Computer Science, candidates should also be willing to engage with the QISS consortium, and integrate their findings into the broader goals of the QISS project.
The primary selection criteria are a PhD or DPhil in computer science or a related field such as physics or mathematics, a strong interest in pursuing fundamental research in the foundations of physics and spacetime, and a strong publication record in quantum information theory, quantum foundations, quantum computing, or an adjacent field.
You will be expected to manage your own research activities, contribute to wider project planning and new project ideas, contribute scientific reports and articles, attend conferences and participate in the broader research programme of the QISS consortium, and (possibly) contribute to co-supervision of research students.
