Project Description

Quantum information Processing (QIP) is a new scientific field that studies how information may be stored and manipulated in systems obeying the laws of quantum physics. Quantum systems lead to novel ways of information processing, such as quantum computation, cryptography and teleportation. However, building a real QIP device is a formidable challenge. This is because quantum systems are susceptible to noise, and too much noise removes any advantages that QIP has over conventional methods. However, the exact levels of noise required before this happens are still unknown, and there may even be regimes where noise may be helpful.

One EPSRC funded studentship is currently available in theoretical quantum information, specifically the relationship between decoherence, non-classicality, and the efficacy of quantum information tasks.

The applicant should have or expected to be awarded a minimum of a 2.1 degree in physics or a related subject. The ideal applicant should be curious, and should havean interest in developing their analytical and numerical skills.
Details on stipend and eligibility are available on the EPSRC website (http://www.epsrc.ac.uk).
Applications should be made as soon as possible.

Funding Notes

Details on stipend and eligibility are available on the EPSRC website (View Website). Applicants without UK citizenship, or EU citizenship with a minimum of 3yrs UK residency, cannot be considered.
