Position: Research Associate in Quantum Computing (Quantum Error Correction)
Institution: University College London
Department: Physics and Astronomy
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The successful candidate will direct, develop and execute research towards the goals of the QCDA network, and in particular Work-package 2 (Universal Logic and Compiling) and Work-package 1 (Qubit codes and decoders). Topics of interest include: Topological LDPC codes and decoders; Distillation of exotic magic states; Generic LDPC codes and decoders; Computation by code deformation; Transversal gates in LDPC codes. They have the opportunity to work on collaborative projects with other QCDA nodes and where necessary collaborate through travel and/or video conferencing
Requirements: Applicants should possess, or be close to obtaining, a PhD in the theory of quantum computing or a related field. Previous experience in the quantum error correction or fault tolerant quantum computing would be desirable. Candidates may have an undergraduate background in any relevant area such as Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science or Electrical Engineering
