Qualification Details

As a formal qualification, you must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent). We expect the candidate to have a solid research background in an area related to at least one of 1) graph theory, 2) quantum information, or 3) quantum groups.

Responsibilities/Job Description

You will undertake, and help direct, research concerning links between graph theory, entanglement-assisted strategies for non-local games, and compact matrix quantum groups. Note however that knowledge of all three of these areas is not expected, rather we are looking for researchers with experience related to at least one of these areas and a willingness to apply it to the others. The research will be conducted in collaboration with the postdoc adviser, David Roberson, who has a background in algebraic graph theory and experience with applying its methods to problems in quantum information and quantum groups. Collaborations with other group members is also encouraged.

By encoding graph theoretic concepts such as coloring, homomorphisms, or isomorphisms into certain types of games, one can define quantum analogs of these notions. Work on such quantum analogs has uncovered many interesting, and sometimes surprising, connections between diverse areas of mathematics. In particular, tools from quantum groups have been used to show that graphs are quantum isomorphic if and only if they have the same number of homomorphisms from any planar graph.

The postdoc is financed by the Carlsberg Young Researcher grant “Quantum Graph Theory”, a 3-year project headed by David Roberson. The major themes of this project include 1) graph relations defined via equality of homomorphism counts over some family of graphs, 2) compact matrix quantum groups that can be described graph theoretically, and 3) entanglement-assisted strategies for graph based non-local games.

The grant finances participation in conferences, workshops, and research visits when relevant.
