PhD positions in theoretical quantum information science

  • Phd
  • 25,000 AUD/yr
  • 20 May 2017

PhD scholarships are available for excellent candidates in theoretical quantum information science to work on many body quantum information, quantum simulations, and quantum optics.

Our research focuses on the interface between many body physics and quantum information. Topics include: designing quantum simulators for quantum field theory and topological phases with anyons, using e.g. superconducting circuits or continuous variable systems; revealing the bulk/boundary correspondence using tensor network states; and modelling collective spin dynamics of NV centres in diamond.

We seek highly motivated, self-driven individuals with some knowledge of quantum information theory and/or condensed matter.

We are part of an Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence on Engineered Quantum Systems (EQuS).


Completed a Master of Research with 10 months project or equivalent.
