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 (International: 42,720 AUD/yr). The PhD provides support and the 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. This theory project (#2018457) will investigate quantum simulations with spin arrays including protocols for preparing many body entangled states and generating novel dynamics using quantum circuits, engineered dissipation, and non-unitary quantum cellular automata rules.
