Funding is available for a postdoctoral fellowship in Relativistic Quantum Information.
Successful candidates are expected to conduct full-time research with Principal Investigator Robert Mann.
Key activities include:
- Developing programs for detector response and entanglement harvesting in curved spacetime
- Generalizing quantum information theoretical concepts to black hole spacetimes
- Developing and proposing laboratory tests and/or simulations of relativistic quantum information phenomena, includingoptomechanical experiments, analog gravity simulations, and quantum optics simulation
Candidates must possess a PhD and an excellent research track record. Expertise in Mathematica and MAPLE is very important, as well as in other languages such as C++ and Python. The ideal candidate will have expertise in both quantum information and in gravitation/general relativity. Candidates with excellent written and spoken communication skills will be prioritized.
Candidates will be considered immediately. Appointment is expected to begin Sept 1 2019 until November 30 2020, with possibility of renewal until August 31 2021.
Along with their CV and publication list, applicants should arrange for three confidential letters of reference to be sent to:
