The posi­tion will be part of the the­o­ret­i­cal quan­tum optics group. The main focus of the research of the group is on the imple­men­ta­tion of quan­tum infor­ma­tion pro­cess­ing in a vari­ety of phys­i­cal sys­tems. Cur­rent­ly most of the research is focussed on quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion and light mat­ter inter­ac­tions. The group is part of the new­ly estab­lished Cen­ter for Hybrid Quan­tum Net­works (Hy‑Q), which aims at exploit­ing pho­tons to merge dis­parate quan­tum sys­tems. The group is also part of the Quan­tum Inter­net Alliance (QIA), a Euro­pean effort to build a glob­al quan­tum inter­net.

The posi­tion should sup­port the activ­i­ties with­in the quan­tum inter­net alliance. The research will include the devel­op­ment of the­o­ries for near-term exper­i­ments which can be done by the par­tic­i­pat­ing exper­i­men­tal groups as well as the phys­i­cal mod­el­ling of those exper­i­ments.

Inquiries about the posi­tion can be made to Pro­fes­sor Anders Sønd­berg Sørensen, Cen­ter for Hybrid Quan­tum Net­works (Hy‑Q) and The Niels Bohr Insti­tute, email:, phone: (+45) 24661377.

The posi­tion is for two years and is open from Octo­ber 1st 2019or as soon as pos­si­ble there­after.
