Research Associate in the Networked Quantum Information Technologies Hub (2 posts)

Applications for this vacancy closed on 22 October 2018 at 12:00PM
We are pleased to announce the opening of two full-time postdoctoral positions
at Oxford University as part of the EPSRC-funded Networked Quantum Information
Technologies (NQIT) Hub. The aim of the Hub is to take some of the UK’s world-
leading experimental work in ion traps and photonic networks and translate it
into quantum computing technology through a highly ambitious and
multidisciplinary programme.



The role is within the theory group of Professor Jonathan Barrett, focusing on
the areas of small-scale quantum computing, secure communications, and the
verification of quantum technology. The research includes the development of
algorithms that can run on a small-scale quantum device, protocols for
verifying that a quantum device is behaving as advertised even when held by an
adversary, and/or device-independent protocols for cryptographic tasks such as
key distribution and randomness generation. The work will support the overall
theory, design, and applications development for quantum computing systems
developed within the NQIT hub.



You will have, or shortly be expecting to obtain, a doctoral degree in
computer science, physics, mathematics, or a related discipline. You should
also have a proven record of research, including strong publications, in at
least one of the areas of quantum communication, quantum cryptography or
quantum algorithms; a willingness to collaborate with experimental groups;
excellent scientific writing ability and good communication skills;
willingness to travel internationally.



The post is fixed-term until 30 November 2019.



The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 22 October 2018.



Our staff and students come from all over the world and we proudly promote a
friendly and inclusive culture. Diversity is positively encouraged, through
diversity groups and champions, for example: www.cs.ox.ac.uk/aboutus/women-cs-
oxford/index.html, as well as a number of family-friendly policies, such as
the right to apply for flexible working and support for staff returning from
periods of extended absence, for example maternity leave.
