Postdoctoral Fellow In Theoretical Physics (3)
atNordita, Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics. Closing date: 6 May 2022.
Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1957. It moved to the AlbaNova University Center in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2007, where it is jointly hosted by KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University. Research at Nordita covers a broad range of theoretical physics including astrophysics, biophysics, condensed matter physics, gravitation, cosmology and astroparticle physics, high-energy physics, and statistical physics/complex systems. The research activity of the local academic staff is supplemented by Nordita Scientific Programs, which bring together groups of leading experts to work on specific topics for extended periods. There is also ample opportunity for collaboration with faculty and research staff at local universities. Further information about Nordita can be found at www. nordita.org.
Project description The project is a newly started project at Nordita and will for the next few years nurture research activities centered around quantum information and complex networks. The surrounding circle of ideas includes quantum computers, machine learning, and “big data”.
Main responsibilities Successful candidates will participate the vibrant and diverse research environment at Nordita and the closely adjacent Stockholm and Uppsala communities, which in coming years will be significantly strengthened with further hiring, including at senior levels.
