Vacancies

The QComms Hub is strongly committed to generating long-term impact through employing and training a cohort of future scientists across a range of science and engineering disciplines that underpin all quantum communications technologies.

As well as outstanding academic input, the Hub benefits from a strong industrial partnership offering many secondment opportunities. Please make sure you check these pages regularly for updates on newly available positions.

 

A unique Research Assistant or Associate opportunity is available at the Centre for Quantum Photonics (CQP) in the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering and H.H. Wills Physics Laboratory at the University of Bristol. This role will conduct R&D in quantum communications networks as part of the £24M EPSRC-funded Quantum Technologies Hub in Quantum Communications (QComms). You will be a key part of the QComms team at Bristol developing quantum photonic communications and cryptography technologies working with university researchers and industrial partners. The aim of the project is the study and application of quantum key distribution (QKD) networks, both across the city of Bristol and the wider UK. This innovative role will involve combining QKD with traditional network systems, and extending both capabilities through the virtualisation of network resources such that they can be defined on the fly with software defined networks.

The post is available immediately in the School's Experimental Quantum Information research group, University of Leeds (School of Physics & Astronomy). The post is part of a quantum technologies hub funded by the EPSRC, and will seek to develop technologies for short range free-space communication implementing quantum security. You will join a dynamic collaborative team, working with Prof. Benjamin Varcoe in the Experimental Quantum Information Group, in co-operation with our UK and overseas research partners. You must have (or be about to obtain) an experimental PhD degree (or equivalent) in quantum information theory, electrical engineering or some similar area.

Five new Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) posts are available in the area of quantum technologies, based in the newly established EPSRC Quantum Communications Hub which is led by the University of York. The £24m, five-year Hub, directed by Professor Tim Spiller, involves eight universities )Bristol, Cambridge, Heriot-Watt, Leeds, Royal Holloway, Sheffield, Strathclyde and York (lead). Private sector partners include BT, the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and Toshiba Research Europe Ltd (TREL). The mission of the Hub is to develop a range of practical quantum communication technologies and to establish a UK Quantum Network.

Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) provides unbreakable, future-proof security against the vulnerabilities of most cryptosystems currently in operation. To this point, QKD has been implemented mostly over dedicated channels and between two parties. Before current communication vulnerabilities are exploited, it is essential to facilitate the use of QKD technology for any two users at any distance, via a network. You will be involved in the theoretical analysis of quantum communications network development at access and metro levels, and for the UK Quantum Network. You will also be engaged in the theoretical development of future generations of quantum networks via quantum repeaters.
