PhD Opportunity - Quantum Computing for Nuclear Physics

Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD studentship working in the theoretical nuclear physics group at the University of Surrey on the application of quantum computing to the solution of problems in many-body physics as applied to atomic nuclei.

You will join a group working on various approaches to the understanding of the properties of nuclear structure and reactions, developing a new approach to using the emerging field of quantum computing as a means of directly simulating the behaviour of nucleons in a nucleus.

The project is sponsored by AWE plc and you will be jointly supervised by University of Surrey and AWE staff.

This is a three year project (with a possible 6 month extension), starting in January 2021.

The closing date for application is Friday 30th October 2020.
