The Computer Science Laboratory of Sorbonne University (LIP6) is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher working on theoretical aspects of certification for quantum cryptographic, communication and computing systems. The position is funded by the QUSCO ERC Starting Grant project "Quantum superiority with coherent states", which aims to demonstrate a quantum advantage for quantum information protocols implemented with photonic resources.
The successful candidate will work with the LIP6 QI (Quantum Information) team. The objective will be to study new methods of quantum certification, taking into account the criteria of the efficiency of the technique in the sense of an optimal use of resources and the plausibility of the assumptions on the system to be certified. These methods will also be tested on experimental systems developed by the QI team as part of the ERC QUSCO project. The researcher will supervise PhD and internship students of the team.
The candidate must have a PhD in physics, mathematics or a related discipline, and have solid experience in theoretical quantum information and more specifically in quantum certification methods, device-independent quantum cryptography, or quantum communication protocols. Previous collaborations with experimental teams are a positive element.
The research activities of the LIP6 QI team (http://www.quantuminfolip6.fr/) cover various topics in the field of quantum information, quantum communications and cryptography, and quantum computing, from fundamental aspects to experimental implementations. The team participates in several national and European collaborative projects and is a founding member of the Center of Quantum Information of Sorbonne University (QICS) and of the Paris Center for Quantum Computing (PCQC).
