Applications are invited for a Research Associate/Senior Research Associate in the theory of quantum computation, tenable from 1 February 2018 (or a date to be agreed). This project, funded by the UK EPSRC Fellowship “New insights in quantum algorithms and complexity”, will deliver three main components: new quantum algorithms, communication protocols and data structures; new bounds on the computational complexity of physical problems; and new mathematical tools to support the above. The researcher will work with 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 funding supporting this role is currently available until July 2019.
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.
