Position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow available at the Department of Mathematics at University of Oslo, Norway, 2022
No. of Positions: 1
Research Field: Mathematics
Joining Date: Mar 01, 2023
Contract Period: 3 Years
Salary: 544400 NOK / YEAR
Department of Mathematics
University of Oslo, Problemveien, Oslo, Norway
The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition to be among Europe’s leading communities for research, education and innovation. Candidates for these fellowships will be selected in accordance with this, and expected to be in the upper segment of their class with respect to academic credentials.
- By the time of appointment, the candidate must hold a degree equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree in mathematics or theoretical physics. The thesis must be submitted, and the date of public defense must be set by the time of application.
- Fluent oral and written communication skills in English.
- Exceptional analytical skills
- Being able to draw connections and see the broad picture
- Independent and creative thinking
- Being able to work in a group
- Positive and enthusiastic
- Willing to contribute to a positive working environment
The position is part of a large interdisciplinary project QOMBINE – “Mathematics for quantum computation and manybody theory”, funded by the Research Council of Norway, which focuses on mathematical problems for quantum computation and many-body theory. More specifically, it will address theoretical questions around the topic of noise-resistant quantum computation, and try to find application to many-body theory and information processing. The Postdoctoral Fellow will be part of the Operator Algebra group, where the work will be conducted in close collaboration with other members of the QOMBINE project.
The Postdoctoral Fellow will:
- Look for application of the theory of tensor category and quantum groups to problems related to topological quantum computation.
- Work in close collaboration with researchers in operator algebras, many-body theory, and quantum information theory.
- Join a research group with broad expertise in mathematics, quantum chemistry, and theoretical physics.
The main purpose of a postdoctoral fellowship is to provide the candidates with enhanced skills to pursue a scientific top position within or beyond academia. To promote a strategic career path, all postdoctoral research fellows are required to submit a professional development plan no later than one month after commencement of the postdoctoral period.
