Postdoc in France

Postdoctoral Positions in Quantum Information: Applications are invited for four two-year postdoctoral positions starting January 2025, funded by the A*MIDEX Chaire d’Excellence project, “Quantumness: combinatorial, computational, and distributed” (QCCD). These positions provide funding for research travel and computer equipment, allowing significant autonomy in shaping research profiles through academic visits and conferences.

4 Postdoctoral Positions in Quantum Information, Computation, and Foundations

Postdoctoral Researcher

Research Area:
Quantum Information, Quantum Computation, Quantum Algorithms, Quantum Causality, Quantum Information Theory

Aix-Marseille University (AMU), Calcul Naturel (CANA) team, Laboratoire d’Informatique et des Systèmes (LIS), France
