Field: Physics

Description:

Title of the position: Master Student
Scientific discipline: Physics
Job type: Scholarship
Number of job offers: 1
Remuneration/Stipend amount/month: up to 2500 PLN/month
Position starts on: 2020-07-01
Maximum period of contract/stipend agreement: 12 Months
Institution: Quantum Resources and Information Laboratory
Project leader: dr Alexander Streltsov
Project title:  Quantum Coherence and Entanglement for Quantum Technology
Project is carried out within the First TEAM programme of the Foundation for Polish Science.
Project Description: Successful candidates will work in a team of theoretical physicists on one of the following topics:
– Quantum resource theories: exploring fundamental features of quantum systems, such as quantum entanglement, coherence, and quantum thermodynamics. Addressing questions such as the state conversion problem, quantifying resource costs for quantum process implementation.
– Quantum communication and quantum computation: application of quantum resource theories to quantify resource consumption in quantum communication protocols and to detect quantum features required for noisy quantum computation.
– Open quantum systems: application of quantum entanglement and coherence to detect and quantify memory effects in open quantum systems.

Key responsibilities include:
Investigation of general quantum features, such as entanglement and quantum coherence, in quantum protocols and quantum computation.

Profile of candidates/requirements:
Experience in at least one of the following topics: quantum physics, quantum optics, information theory, commensurate with the education level of the candidate.
