The School of Mathematics is seeking to appoint a Lecturer (analogous to Assistant Professor), Senior Lecturer, or Associate Professor in Quantum Computing Theory, the level of appointment depending on the experience of the successful candidate. We are looking for world-class researchers in any area in the theory of quantum computing. The post-holder will be responsible for her or his own research programme, will be responsible for undertaking independent research, teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students, and carrying out appropriate administrative tasks.
The post-holder will join the Institute for Mathematical Physics and will be integrated within the interdepartmental Quantum Information Theory Group, one of the world’s leading groups in quantum information theory. The post arises from our recent award of a substantial research grant, an EPSRC Prosperity Partnership, in association with Google and University College London.
The School is one of the UK’s leading centres for mathematics (ranked 4th for research intensity and joint 5th for GPA in the national REF2014 assessment). Comprising over 140 academic, research and professional services staff, the School has recently moved to its new home in the historic Grade II-listed Fry Building in the heart of the University precinct. Following a £33 million three-year renovation project, the Fry Building provides state-of-the-art facilities for mathematics teaching and research.
The School of Mathematics is committed to equal opportunities and to promoting diversity and an inclusive working environment. It is an Athena SWAN Silver Award holder, and supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aiming at advancing women's careers in mathematics.
