The newly established Mathematical Quantum Information RIKEN Hakubi Research Team at RIKEN is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher for a period of 2 years. The position can begin as soon as possible.

The successful candidate will work on the project “Foundations of quantum resources: mathematical theory for the structure and applications of quantum phenomena”, which is a broad and open-ended investigation of the mathematical foundations of quantum information, and will offer a large degree of flexibility.

Topics of particular interest include: quantum resource theories, theory of entanglement, classical and quantum Shannon theory, convex optimisation problems in quantum information, quantum foundations. Candidates from more mathematically-oriented backgrounds (e.g. functional analysis, matrix analysis) are also encouraged to apply.
