PhD Studentships in Quantum Computation, Complexity and Simulation at UCL

The UCL department of computer science, department of physics, and London Centre for Nanotechnology offers 3 PhD studentships in quantum computation, complexity and simulation.

The group’s research interests include benchmarking of quantum computation (Cubitt, Browne, Masanes), error mitigation and compilation for near term quantum computers (Browne), quantum simulation (Browne, Green), translation of tensor networks to quantum circuits (Green), aspects of quantum machine learning (Green), quantum computational advantage from the perspective of quantum chaos (Masanes), analytical studies of the ultimate constraints upon quantum computation (Cubitt) and computational complexity of quantum simulation tasks (Cubitt).

The research will be carried out as part of a cross-institution and international prosperity partnership between UCL and Bristol University, and companies Google, Phasecraft and GTN. It will provide opportunity to run experiments on cutting-edge quantum devices and to collaborate with our industrial partners.

To apply:

  1. Go to this link and press “accept and apply”.
  2. Select department “physics and astronomy” and press “search now”.
  3. Press “apply now” in the row with “programme code RRDPHYSCMM01”, “mode full-time” and “academic year of entry 2020/21”.
  4. Get into your account or register if you don’t have one.
  5. Fill up the application form including two referees, an academic transcript (as far as it goes), a short CV and brief personal statement. You don’t need to put a prospective supervisor nor a research proposal.
  6. Please let your referees know that they will receive an email invitation from UCL once you have submitted their application. We require their reference letters by 6th March.
  7. Your brief personal statement must include: details of a research project undertaken as part of your studies (including project title and supervisor), and details of any other relevant research experience you have. Any particular highlights of your academic career so far that may not be apparent from the information on your form (e.g. courses in which you did particularly well, prizes, or publications of previous research). Reasons for your interest on making a PhD in our group, and your career goals. Be as specific and quantitative as you can.
  8. The application deadline is 6th March.

Note that PhD studentships including a MRes on Quantum Technologies (total of 1+3 years) are currently offered in the Center for Doctoral Training in Delivering Quantum Technologies here.
