Subject: [quantum-foundations] PhD position in quantum information/foundations 
at Royal Holloway, University of London
Date: Tuesday, February 01, 2011
From: Jonathan Barrett <Jon.Barrett at rhul.ac.uk>
To: quantum-foundations at maillist.ox.ac.uk



PhD project in quantum information and the foundations of quantum theory.

A fully funded PhD position is available for a UK/EU student, project 
title "Quantum theory and the nature of time". This position is 
partially supported by a large grant from the Foundational Questions 
Institute. The aim is to investigate the connections between the 
mathematical formalism of quantum theory and facts about time, such as 
reversibility and irreversibility of physical laws. For more details, 
including an introduction and technical abstract, see here:

http://www.fqxi.org/grants/large/awardees/view/__details/2010/pironio

The expectation is that a student will spend approximately half of their 
time working on the project above, and half working on theoretical 
topics in quantum information science. The latter are to be discussed, 
but may include quantum nonlocality and/or device-independent quantum 
cryptography.

Prospective students with a strong background in mathematics or 
theoretical physics, and a deep interest in quantum information theory, 
the foundations of quantum theory, or both, are encouraged to apply.
