Applications are welcome at any time and the timing of the selection process will be dependent on the applications received.
Applications are invited for a number of open postdoctoral research associate (PDRA)/senior research associate positions in the theory of quantum computation, tenable from a date to be agreed.
Areas of particular interest include, but are not restricted to:
- quantum algorithms and their underpinning mathematics;
- architectures for quantum computers;
- applications of quantum computers;
- quantum computational complexity and Hamiltonian complexity;
- algorithms for simulation of quantum systems;
- and verification/testing of quantum devices.
The PDRAs will have the opportunity to work with Prof Noah Linden and/or Dr Ashley Montanaro in the School of Mathematics, University of Bristol.
The applicant should have, or expect to soon receive, a PhD in the theory of quantum computation or quantum information; or otherwise should be able to show evidence of expertise in this area.
The applicant should also have a track record of high-quality publications.
The School of Mathematics is one of the leading centres for research and teaching in mathematical sciences in the UK, and offers a stimulating and friendly environment with first-rate facilities.
The School of Mathematics is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aiming at advancing women's careers in mathematics http://www.maths.bris.ac.uk/admin/life/women/.
For informal enquiries please contact Prof Noah Linden (email@example.com) or Dr Ashley Montanaro (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We appreciate and value difference, seeking to attract, develop and retain a diverse mix of talented people that will contribute to the overall success of Bristol and help maintain our position as one of the world’s leading universities.
