A PhD studentship, supported by EPSRC funding through York, is available to work on high-rate quantum communications, based at the Department of Computer Science, University of York.

PhD studentship in Quantum Technologies or Quantum Foundations

At: 
University of York, Department of Mathematics
Deadline: 
17 February, 2017

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.

PhD in theoretical quantum dynamics in superconducting circuits

At: 
Heriot-Watt University
Deadline: 
20 January, 2017

Abelian and non-Abelian gauge theories are of central importance in many areas of physics. In condensed matter physics, they describe quantum spin liquids and in quantum information theory they appear in connection to quantum error correction. Most famously, they play a central role in the standard model of particle physics, where e.g.
