National Physical Laboratory Teddington
United Kingdom

We are seeking a talented postdoctoral research associate to work on an experimental project looking at assurance for quantum random number generators (QRNGs). This position is funded by the EPSRC’s Quantum Communications Hub and will be based at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in Teddington in the group led by Dr Alastair Sinclair. The project will involve developing the necessary experimental understanding, expertise and techniques to test quantum photonic QRNGs. The developed approach will be applied to one or two selected implementations, and contribute to the development of a UK assurance process for these devices.

This is a fixed term position to start as soon as possible and will finish at the end of November 2019.  You will be based at the NPL in Teddington and the University of York will employ you throughout your contract.

Informal technical enquiries regarding this post may be made to: Dr Christopher Chunnilall (christopher [dot] chunnilall [at] npl [dot] co [dot] uk).

Informal enquiries regarding the Quantum Communications Hub may be made to: Professor Tim Spiller (timothy [dot] spiller [at] york [dot] ac [dot] uk).
