Research Associate / Senior Research Associate in Quantum Computing Theory

University of Bristol - Faculty of Science

Location: Bristol
Salary: £37,099 to £46,974 Grade I/J, per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 11th December 2023
Closes: 8th January 2024
Job Ref: ACAD107150

Salary:

£37,099 - £41,732 per annum (Grade I) or

£41,732 - £46,974 per annum (Grade J).

The role

The post-holder(s) will perform cutting-edge academic research on the theory of quantum computation. Areas of particular interest include, but are not restricted to: quantum algorithms and their underpinning mathematics; verification/testing of quantum devices; architectures for quantum computers; applications of quantum computers; quantum computational complexity and Hamiltonian complexity; algorithms for simulation of quantum systems, design of methods for reducing errors in quantum measurements.

What will you be doing?

Aspects to which the post-holder could contribute, depending on research interests and expertise, include:

  • Development of new efficient quantum algorithms or communication protocols for practically relevant computational problems;
  • Design of methods for verification/testing of near-term quantum devices;
  • Design of techniques for simulation of quantum-mechanical systems using a quantum computer;
  • Characterisation of the complexity of problems in many-body quantum physics and quantum information theory;
  • Analysis/development of architectures for quantum computers;
  • Development of new mathematical tools and underpinning theory, e.g. within quantum query or communication complexity;
  • Development of methods for error reduction in quantum measurements for near-term devices, and fundamental studies of quantum measurements.

The post-holder will be expected to have a high degree of autonomy within the overall framework of the project.

You should apply if

A PhD in the theory of quantum computation or quantum information, or otherwise evidence of expertise in this area, is essential, together with a strong record of publications in high-quality international conferences and journals.

We look for candidates to have strong problem-solving skills, the ability to take a primary role in organizing and running research projects, and enthusiasm to work in a multidisciplinary group.

Our strategy and mission

We recently launched our strategy to 2030 tying together our mission, vision and values.

The University of Bristol aims to be a place where everyone feels able to be themselves and do their best in an inclusive working environment where all colleagues can thrive and reach their full potential. We want to attract, develop, and retain individuals with different experiences, backgrounds and perspectives – particularly people of colour, LGBT+ and disabled people - because diversity of people and ideas remains integral to our excellence as a global civic institution.
