Open call for two PhD positions – AppQInfo Project

UPDATE: The positions are no longer available because they have been filled.

We are excited about the start of a new training project: AppQInfo

AppQInfo (Applications and Hardware for Photonic Quantum Information Processing) is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN). The aim of AppQInfo is to provide a world-class training in photonic Quantum Information Processing (pQIP), and prepare an excellent cohort of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) to become the future R&D staff of Europe’s emerging markets in this area.

Two PhD vacancies are available for highly motivated ESR positions (full-time 36 months) as part of the new H2020, EU-funded, MSC ITN “AppQInfo”. EURAXESS Job Offer ID: 624683. The research topics of the two positions are the following: -ESR3: Advanced quantum communication in free-space -ESR4: Exploitation of entanglement in quantum networks

ERSs will be primarily hosted by the University of Padova-Department of Information Engineering (Italy) with stays in other partner institutions (secondments). The ESRs are expected to join the University of Padova starting from October 2021 (estimated).
