As part of my recently awarded EPSRC Established Career Fellowship, I have two positions available to carry out research into various theoretical and computational aspects of “Hybrid quantum and classical computing”.

Quantum computation is likely to be deployed as some sort of co-processor augmenting the power of a classical computer that takes care of tasks that are easy to perform classically and also controls the quantum processor. The interplay between the quantum and classical aspects of quantum architectures is understudied; you will contribute to developing this area of research to optimize the quantum and classical components of future computers.

You will be joining an internationally recognized theoretical research group that is part of the Atmol section in the Department of Physics at Durham University, UK. The appointments will be for two years in the first instance, with the possibility of extension depending on funding. The start date is flexible and negotiable from immediate to January 2016.
