Applications are invited for a 2-years post-doctoral position in the

area of quantum computing, quantum programming, and the analysis of

quantum algorithms at the Quantum Systems of Informatics Group at the

Institute of Theoretical and Applied Informatics

(https://iitis.pl/en), Polish Academy of Sciences, Gliwice, Poland.

The involved researcher is expected to hold PhD in computer science,

physics, or a related field, and is expected to participate in the

activities of the group, including the supervision of young

researchers, as well as pursuing their own research programme. The

position does not include any teaching obligations. The preferred

starting date is the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021.

We are also looking for a PhD student at the Quantum Systems of

Informatics Group at the Institute of Theoretical and Applied

Informatics, Polish Academy of Sciences. We are seeking a motivated

candidate with a background in quantum physics, quantum information

theory, computing theory, or discrete mathematics. The candidate is

expected to participate in the PhD programme at the host institution.

The interested candidates are requested to contact the project leader,

Dr Jaroslaw Miszczak (iitis.pl/en/person/jmiszczak,

https://github.com/jmiszczak) for further information and

clarifications concerning the position.

Both phd and post-doc positions are founded within the scope of Polish

National Science Centre project ‘Impact of input data alteration and

modification of the algorithm parameters on the efficiency of quantum

programs’.

About the project

While the excitement in the area of quantum computing is fully

justified by the new theoretical developments, year by year scientists

have discovered new limitations of quantum computing devices. In

particular, unitary operation decomposition provides a number of

problems including the applications to hardware with fixed topology.

Moreover, quantum algorithms have proved to be sensitive to noise,

which may impact the results of the computation. The main goal of the

project is to develop theoretical methods suitable for analysing the

impact of quantum programme alternation – input data modification or

imprecise implementation of the algorithm – on the efficiency of

quantum algorithms. Quantum programme is a sequence of quantum

operations and the quantum representation of input data which are sent

to the quantum processor. In some cases, we can consider quantum

programme alternation as an action of a malicious party, and in this

scenario, we can understand it as an attack on a quantum processor or

quantum program. More information about the project can be found at

https://miszczak.eu/grants/qprogmods/.

About the host institution

Institute of Theoretical and Applied Informatics, Polish Academy of

Sciences, is ranked among the best (rank A) research institutes in

Poland in the area of information and communication technologies. The

institute hosts several groups working in the diverse areas of

computer science and information technologies, including machine

learning, multimedia systems, computer vision, telecommunication and

networking, and quantum computing. The institute is located in

Gliwice, one of the historical cities of the Upper Silesia region of

Poland.

Birkbeck and the Science Museum Group (SMG) are offering a fully-funded Collaborative Doctoral Partnership grant from October 2020 to undertake full-time or part-time PhD research on the history of art in science museums and its disciplinary impacts.

BACKGROUND

The studentship is funded through the AHRC's Collaborative Doctoral Partnership scheme.

This project proposes a new perspective on the role of arts within a science institution. It will investigate a two-sided question: how have museums like the Science Museum Group thought about and conceptualised art? And how have the histories of such institutions, and their collections, shaped how the discipline of art history has conceived of visual cultures of science?

PROJECT DETAILS

Project title: 'Collecting the boundaries of art in the Science Museum Group'

The project is intentionally interdisciplinary, bringing museum studies and histories of collecting to bear on the boundary between history of science and history of art. Focused on archival research, particularly museum files, the work offers a timely and significant contribution to work at SMG to develop a vision for art across the group. It provides the opportunity for a student to work in a curatorial capacity across the SMG museums, contributing to collections history and policy development, as well as to future acquisitions and commissioning.

The student will be expected to spend time at both Birkbeck and the SMG museums, while being based at the Science Museum, as well as become part of the wider cohort of CDP-funded students across the UK. They also have the potential (funding depending) to spend time working with the Curator of the Art Collection at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, Washington DC, to do a comparative study of a comparable collection.

JUNIOR FELLOWSHIP in PHILOSOPHY OF PHYSICS

University of Geneva

The Geneva Symmetry Group at the University of Geneva's Department of Philosophy solicits applications for a six-months junior visiting fellowship for advanced PhD students, starting 1 August 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is funded by the John Templeton Foundation grant `Cosmology Beyond Spacetime'.

Candidates must be at an advanced stage in a PhD program at an accredited university, working on a dissertation in the philosophy of quantum gravity or the philosophy of cosmology, broadly construed. The fellowship will provide support for the successful candidate to spend six months away from their home institution to work with the project's Geneva group led by Professor Christian Wüthrich, and to benefit from interactions with project members and from participation in the project's activities. The successful candidate will participate in a tutoring program directed by Professor Wüthrich. They will be expected to participate in weekly group meetings during term, help with the administration and organization of the group's activities, and contribute to the group's research and outreach efforts. Fluency in English is required. More information on the project and the research group is available at http://beyondspacetime.net/.

The fellowship is fixed-term for six months. The salary will depend on the candidate's prior experience, but is expected to be around CHF 26,000 in total for the period. Research funds will be available for travel to relevant conferences and to visit the project's other group at the University of Illinois at Chicago. The successful candidate will remain a student at their home institution, and will not be admitted into any degree program at Geneva. The fellowship will not cover any costs (such as tuition and fees) at the home institution.

Applications must contain a cover letter detailing the pertinent experience and motivation for the position, a CV, a 1-2 page description of the dissertation project, one writing sample, and two letters of reference (sent under separate cover). They should be sent to Professor Christian Wüthrich at christian.wuthrichATunige.ch.

Review of the files will begin on March 31, 2020 and continue until the position is filled. Candidate files will be reviewed by qualified members of the Scientific Advisory Committee, and the best qualified candidate will be selected by Professors Huggett and Wüthrich.

PhD studentships will be available for theoretical and observational research projects in:

Galaxy evolution

Stellar population modelling

Early universe cosmology

Testing gravity on cosmological scales

Dark energy

Large scale structure

Gravitational lensing

Supernovae

Gravitational waves

There is no formal closing date, but applicants are advised to submit an application as early as possible. If you are seeking a funded studentship, you should aim to submit by the end of January.
