Opening for a PhD in theoretical quantum technology


We have a PhD opening to support our theoretical efforts on developing randomized measurements (RM) for probing many-body entanglement in quantum technologies. The goal of the PhD will be
– to develop and benchmark new measurement protocols probing many-body entanglement in the context of the quantum simulation and quantum computing.
– to collaborate with experimental groups implementing randomized measurements with superconducting qubits and cold atoms platforms.

We are seeking for a highly motivated candidate with a strong background in theoretical physics, including preferentially quantum optics, quantum information, and many-body physics. We also expect a deep interest for working in synergy with experimental groups.

The LPMMC (CNRS and universite Grenoble-Alpes) is situated in Grenoble. The offered position will run for 3 years, with flexibility on the starting date.
