Research Associate in Quantum Theory

Applications for this vacancy closed on 24 August 2016 at 12:00PM
A full-time postdoctoral position has opened up for a highly motivated and
well-qualified researcher in the area of quantum information science and the
foundations of quantum theory. You will work with Dr Jonathan Barrett in the
Quantum Group, Department of Computer Science, University of Oxford, and with
Professor Stefano Pironio, Laboratoire d'Information Quantique, Université
Libre de Bruxelles. The project is collaborative between the University of
Oxford and Université Libre de Bruxelles, funded by La Fondation Philippe
Wiener - Maurice Anspach. The initial contract is for 12 months from 1 October
2016 at the University of Oxford. The Université Libre de Bruxelles are
anticipated to have funding for a subsequent 12 month post, based in Brussels.



The project, titled Causality in quantum theory: foundations and applications,
aims to investigate causality in quantum theory, both from a foundational
perspective and with applications to quantum information processing. We aim to
develop a general theory of quantum causal networks and apply it to novel
protocols for device-independent quantum communication and cryptography.



The primary selection criteria are a doctoral degree (or very close to
completion) in Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics, or related discipline,
together with a documented track record of published, peer-reviewed research
in quantum foundations or quantum information science. Experience of actively
collaborating in the development of research articles for publication is
highly desirable.



The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 24 August 2016. Interviews
are expected to be held in late August/early September 2016.
