PhD Fellowship “Theory of Quantum Algorithms”

A PhD Fellowship is being offered to work in Deep Quantum Lab – lead by Prof Jacob Biamonte at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology.

It is anticipated that the candidate will defend in either VAK 01.04.02 Theoretical Physics or 01.01.03 Mathematical Physics.  Applications are now open.

Experience in quantum theory/computing is not required.  Students who have completed or are nearing completion of a masters degree with backgrounds in an area of mathematical sciences with interest in quantum computing are encouraged to apply.

Planned research projects are along the lines of the topics described on DeepQuantum.AI – these topics include

  • Quantum Enhanced Algorithms for Machine Learning
  • Tensor Networks
  • Hamiltonian Complexity

The PhD course takes a minimum of three years but normally it takes four years. Those accepted into this program will receive (i) a tuition waiver (covering the full price of tuition) as well as (ii) a basic starting stipend.

Application procedure. Students should apply online to the Physics program and select Jacob Biamonte as their potential advisor.
