Joining us

We are always interested to hear from talented and motivated scientists. If you wish to join the group, please get in touch (animesh dot datta at warwick dot ac dot uk).


A postdcotoral position is available to develop theoretical techniques for quantum-enhanced sensing (quantum metrology) of multiple parameters. Particular emphasis is to be placed on designing novel schemes using methods from quantum and classical information theory, and analysing them using methods from estimation theory. It will also develop methods amenable to practical implementation with emerging quantum technologies by combating decoherence effects in these schemes, for instance by employing strategies from quantum error correction and quantum control.

Application deadline: 18 Mar 2018. Please apply here.

For informal enquiries, please get in touch (animesh dot datta at warwick dot ac dot uk) with your CV and publication list.

Enquiries from outstanding candidates in quantum information science who seek support for external fellowship applications are welcome at any time. Please include a CV, publication list, and cover letter, detailing potential funding agencies. All of these applications require endorsement from our research group and the department. So, get in touch (animesh dot datta at warwick dot ac dot uk) well in advance of the deadlines.

Potential sources of funding include Newton International Fellowships, Royal Commission for the exhibition of 1851, EPSRC, The Leverhume Society, Marie Curie actions, JSPS, SNSF, The Branco Weiss Foundation, US NSF, Canadian NSERC, University of Warwick (IAS), AXA Research Fund.

There may also be fellowships available from your home country as well as other institutions.


The two projects offered for an October 2018 start are

1. From quantum supremacy to quantum simulations (Supported by NQIT for UK/EU students)

2. Mechanisms of energy transport in photosynthesis

For international students, a number of scholarships available through the university, such as the extremely competitive Chancellor's International Scholarship. Get in touch (animesh dot datta at warwick dot ac dot uk) well in advance if you want to be considered.

Informal enquires are encouraged as early as possible; please include a CV.

Other sources of scholarships include the Commonwealth scholarships, Newton Fund, and John Monash scholarships.

Undergraduate/Masters/Summer projects

Get in touch (animesh dot datta at warwick dot ac dot uk) with your grades and interests. We should be able to find something to work on.

We can also accommodate talented and committed undergraduate students for short research projects in the group over summer through the Warwick Undergraduate Research Scholarship Scheme (URSS). Enquires from prospective students are welcome at all times, although advanced expressions of interest for summer projects is advised.
