The School of Mathematics is seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Quantum Computing Theory. A Lecturer holds an indefinite appointment roughly equivalent to an Assistant or Associate Professor in the US system (depending on career stage); a Senior Lecturer/Reader is equivalent to an Associate Professor.
We are looking for world-class researchers in any area in the theory of quantum computing. The post-holder will be responsible for her or his own research programme, carry out appropriate administrative tasks and deliver excellence in teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The post will be integrated within the interdepartmental Quantum Information Theory Group, one of the world’s leading groups in quantum information theory; see https://www.bristolmathsresearch.org/qitgroup/. The new post arises from our recent award of a substantial research grant, an EPSRC Prosperity Partnership, in association with Google and UCL.
The appointment is part of a major strategic expansion of the School of Mathematics, which has recently moved to a substantial Grade-II listed property, providing office space for over 100 academics, 100 post-graduate students and 80 post-docs. The building has been transformed into a state-of-the-art mathematics teaching and research facility. The School of Mathematics is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aiming at advancing women's careers in mathematics and we therefore particularly welcome applications from women for this post.
