We are looking for talented and ambitious graduates who wish to pursue a Ph.D. in Quantum Technologies or the foundations of quantum theory. The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Dr Roger Colbeck in the Department of Mathematics at the University of York. The current aim of the research that this studentship is connected to is to understand the most practical ways to exploit fundamental physics to generate random numbers or to understand the nature of causation in quantum theory.

The ideal candidate will have a first degree in mathematics, physics, computer science or a similar discipline and will have some experience working with quantum information theory (e.g., have taken a course on the topic or done a project). Outstanding candidates without such experience are also encouraged to apply.

To apply, please complete the application form by clicking on the relevant “Apply now” link here: , specifying a start date of October 2017 full-time and naming Dr Roger Colbeck as your potential supervisor. The closing date is Friday 17th February 2017.
