PhD candidate (m/f/d) in Photonic Quantum Computing

As a PhD can­di­da­te in Pho­to­nic Quantum Com­pu­ting at Q.ANT, you will per­form stu­dies on uni­ver­sal approa­ches for pho­to­nic quantum com­pu­ting. You will focus on inves­ti­ga­ting new ways to pre­pa­re high-fide­li­ty resour­ce sta­tes requi­red for uni­ver­sal quantum com­pu­ting. Wit­hin the frame­work of a public rese­arch pro­ject, you will be joint­ly super­vi­sed in col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with a lea­ding-edge pro­fes­sor at a renow­ned rese­arch uni­ver­si­ty (Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty of Den­mark). This will allow you to build up expe­ri­ence in both the uni­ver­si­ty- and indus­try-based quantum technology research.
