Ref. No. SU FV-0154-23
at Nordita, Nordic Institute of Theoretical Physics. Closing date: 27 January 2023.
Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1957. It moved to the AlbaNova University Center in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2007, where it is jointly hosted by KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University. Research at Nordita covers a broad range of theoretical physics including astrophysics, biophysics, condensed matter physics, gravitation, cosmology and astroparticle physics, high-energy physics, and statistical physics/complex systems. The research activity of the local academic staff is supplemented by Nordita Scientific Programs, which bring together groups of leading experts to work on specific topics for extended periods. There is also ample opportunity for collaboration with faculty and research staff at local universities. Further information about Nordita can be found at www.nordita.org.
The candidate will be part of the Wallenberg Iniative for Networks and Quantum Information with focus on developing new insights insights into the theoretical foundations of quantum information. This is a 5 year project.
The position includes conducting a strong research program and interacting with colleagues and visitors at Nordita, Stockholm University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Uppsala University, and elsewhere in the Nordic countries. The successful candidate is expected to spend significant time at Nordita, KTH, and SU, building connections between condensed matter, astrophysics and high-energy groups.
Researchers are appointed primarily for purposes of research and must hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country. The ideal candidate should have a strong background in the field of quantum physics foundations and quantum information theory. In particular, a preference is for candidates with focus on developing tools that address the control and observation of causal structures in quantum systems.
Special importance is given to research expertise shown, for example, through publications. The applicant's ability to establish and develop collaborations both in research and education is of importance.
