PhD position

available in quantum information/quantum foundations (Vienna, Austria)

The Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI, Vienna) offers a PhD position in the interface of quantum information theory and quantum foundations. The successful candidate, who must hold a degree in physics, mathematics or computer science, will join the research group led by Dr. Miguel Navascués in the heart of Vienna. The current activities of the group focus on alternatives to quantum theory, time machines and the physics of many-body systems, see the group site for details.


We are looking for a curious and imaginative student who loves physics. Due to the nature of foundational research, very often the group will run into unexplored areas of physics and mathematics: in such situations, the student will be expected, not only to tackle the problems posed by the supervisor, but also to formulate relevant questions him/herself. A flexible mind and the ability to think independently are essential.
