Scholarship available to
Several PhD scholarships (both theory and experiment) are available through the Macquarie University node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQuS) http://equs.org/.
This 3-year scholarship covers the national/international tuition fees and provides an annual stipend of $27,082 AUD (2018 rate). The PhD provides support for travel and research costs and opportunity for frequent interaction with researchers and students in the other nodes of EQuS. Macquarie University is located in Sydney, Australia.
One of the grand challenges of the 2nd quantum revolution is to simulate complex physical systems that are beyond the capabilities of classical machines. However, individual quantum systems are very fragile and to be useful components in a quantum machine, they must be accurately controlled. The experimental position (#2019120) based in the Quantum Materials and Applications (QMAPP) group will work on quantum control and simulation using collective superspins in NV centres in diamond and/or strongly interacting quantum-well cavity polaritons.
