We are always on the lookout for outstanding PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers broadly in the area of quantum information, quantum algorithms, quantum cryptography, and theoretical computer science. See here for an overview of our research, and here, here, and here for past job advertisements to get an impression. Please feel free to get in touch informally in case you are interested in a PhD or postdoctoral position in this area (including a CV, a brief description of your research interests, and why you would like to join our group).

  • In particular, we are looking for outstanding PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers for the ERC project “Symmetry and Optimization at the Frontiers of Computation”. To get an impression, check out the talk “Symmetries of Computational Problems and Optimization” (video, slides), Avi Wigderson’s ICM talk, and our paper (soon to become a book!) Towards a theory of non-commutative optimization that mentions many open problems.

    Please get in touch informally in case you are interested in working on cutting-edge research in classical or quantum optimization, symmetries, algebraic complexity, etc!

  • Jointly with Giulio Malavolta (MPI-SP), we are currently looking to fill a CASA PhD or postdoc position at the interface of quantum information and cryptography. See here for more details and information about how to apply.

  • Jointly with Alex May, we are looking for an excellent candidate for a fully funded PhD position as part of Quantum-Safe Internet (QSI), a Marie Curie Innovative Training Network (MSCA-ITN). See here for more details and information about how to apply.

Finally, if you are interested in working as an undergraduate research assistant in our group, feel welcome to get in touch to inquire about options.
