Research Fellow (106491-0922)

Fixed-term contract for 24 months, 1.0 FTE.

A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in the area of theoretical quantum computation and information is available at the University of Warwick. The position is a fixed term contract for 2 years, available in connection with an EPSRC New Horizons project led by Drs Tom Gur (Warwick Computer Science) and Animesh Datta (Warwick Physics) and. The research project is a collaboration between the departments of Computer Science and Physics at the University of Warwick, aimed at developing efficient property testing algorithms for quantum channels.

You will need to have a strong background in theoretical computer science and quantum computing/information. You will need to have (or expect to obtain shortly) a PhD in the relevant area. You should provide with your application form a CV, including a list of publications and the names and contact details of three references, and a research statement.

If you are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD but have not yet had it conferred, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant at the top of level 5 of the University grade structure (£31,411). Upon receipt of evidence of the successful award of your PhD, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of level 6 of the University grade structure (£32,348).

We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.

For further information, please contact Dr Animesh Datta and Dr Tom Gur.
