Postdoc in Theoretical Quantum Optics/Quantum Information at the Niels Bohr Institute

Postdoc in Theoretical Quantum Optics/Quantum Information at the Niels Bohr Institute

The posi­tion will be part of the the­o­ret­i­cal quan­tum optics group head­ed by Prof. Anders S. Sørensen (www.tqo.dk). The group is focus­ing on mak­ing the­o­ries for the imple­men­ta­tion of quan­tum infor­ma­tion pro­cess­ing in con­crete phys­i­cal sys­tems, includ­ing quan­tum opti­cal sys­tems such as pho­tons and atoms as well as sol­id-state sys­tems such as quan­tum dots and super­con­duct­ing qubits.

The posi­tion will be part of the new­ly estab­lished Cen­ter for Hybrid Quan­tum Neworks (Hy‑Q, https://hy‑q.nbi.ku.dk).
The cen­ter is a 6 year major research ini­tia­tive aim­ing at cre­at­ing a quan­tum inter­net by exploit­ing quan­tum dots and opto-mechan­i­­cal sys­tems. The cen­ter is a col­lab­o­ra­tion between the the­o­ret­i­cal quan­tum optics group and the groups of Prof. Peter Lodahl (www.quantum-photonics.dk) and Prof. Albert Schliess­er (www.nbi.dk/~aschlies/research.html). In total the cen­ter employs approx­i­mate­ly 50 sci­en­tists work­ing on quan­tum net­works. The posi­tion will also be part of the research with­in the Quan­tum Inter­net Alliance (http://quantum-internet.team)
The posi­tion should sup­port and com­ple­ment the activ­i­ties of the Hy‑Q research cen­ter and the Quan­tum Inter­net Alliance. To this end the suc­cess­ful can­di­date should make the­o­ries for con­crete exper­i­ments, which can be per­formed in the Hy‑Q lab­o­ra­to­ries as well as the­o­ries for long-term appli­ca­tions for quan­tum infor­ma­tion pro­cess­ing. The pre­cise project will be defined in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the can­di­date, but the start­ing point will be clus­ter state gen­er­a­tion using quan­tum dots and how this can be exploit­ed for long dis­tance quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion. In addi­tion the posi­ton can include more gen­er­al the­o­ry devel­op­ment for quan­tum net­works.
Inquiries about the posi­tion can be made to Prof. Anders S. Sørensen, anders.sorensen@nbi.dk, phone: (+45)24661377.
The posi­tion is for two years and is open as soon as pos­si­ble.
The Uni­ver­si­ty wish­es our staff to reflect the diver­si­ty of soci­ety and thus wel­comes appli­ca­tions from all qual­i­fied can­di­dates regard­less of per­son­al back­ground.
