Postdocs in Quantum Information Processing and Quantum Nonlocality with Continuous Variables

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral scholar position in sustainable development to join Technical University of Denmark, Denmark. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply before the deadline: March 15, 2020.

At the Section for Quantum Physics and Information Technology, we are seeking several excellent and highly motivated postdoctoral researchers to work on the theory of quantum information processing and quantum nonlocality with continuous variables.

Measurements on quantum systems can defy classical notions of cause and effect. This represents a striking departure from a classical description of nature and is central to the foundations of modern physics. At the same time, the lack of any classical causal explanation means that quantum events can be truly random, which enables novel information processing with security based directly on natural laws. This project will explore quantum correlations in continuous degrees of freedom, which are not yet well understood. The goal is to advance our fundamental understanding of quantum physics as well as to develop ultra-secure information processing and communication. Successful candidates will be part of the research group of Prof. Jonatan Bohr Brask, within the Section for Quantum Physics and Information Technology at DTU Physics. The section also hosts top experimental researchers working on quantum information science and technology, including at bigQ – Center for Macroscopic Quantum States, a Danish National Research Foundation Center of Excellence. This enables great opportunities for realising theoretical ideas in practice and developing realistic protocols. Close collaboration with experimental colleagues is expected. The positions are funded by the Carlsberg Foundation. You will be developing new theoretical tools, with an aim to gain better understanding into quantum nonlocality in systems with continuous degrees of freedom, as well as novel protocols for secure quantum information processing. The work can be focused towards fundamental questions or applications, according to interests. Tasks could include: You will be expected to present your results in scientific publications and at international conferences and meetings.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, disability, race, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply. At DTU Physics, we carry out cutting-edge research in modern physics, with particular focus on four main areas: quantum technology, sustainable energy, materials, and biophysics. Our focus is both to acquire greater knowledge about basic scientific problems and to conduct research oriented towards use in societies and companies. DTU develops technology for people. With our international elite research and study programmes, we are helping to create a better world and to solve the global challenges formulated in the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Hans Christian rsted founded DTU in 1829 with a clear vision to develop and create value using science and engineering to benefit society. That vision lives on today. DTU has 11,500 students and 6,000 employees. We work in an international atmosphere and have an inclusive, evolving, and informal working environment. Our main campus is in Kgs. Lyngby north of Copenhagen and we have campuses in Roskilde and Ballerup and in Sisimiut in Greenland.
