The Quantum Information Group (GIQ) of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, UAB, offers a PhD position within the project QLAnoCLA (Quantum Learning and Non-Classicality) funded by the 'Programa Estatal de Fomento de la Investigación Científica y Técnica de Excelencia'. The appointment will be for 3 years, possibly renewable for a fourth year as junior postdoc.
We seek promising PhD candidates and offer a stimulating environment to pursue research projects oriented along four possible research tracks: i) quantum statistical inference; ii) machine learning; iii) quantum resource theories; iv) assessing quantumness and non-classicality.
Applications have to be submitted in a very narrow time-window (3-18 October 2017) and have to be completed via the Ayudas para contratos predoctorales para la formación de doctores 2017. A master degree, or equivalent degree, and the admission to the UAB’s PhD program is required (see http://www.uab.cat/web/postgraduate/phds/all-phd-programmes/general-information/physics-1345467765430.html?param2=1345658736441)
