EARLIER WISEMAN GROUP NEWS


CQC2T logo

The Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology was established as an Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence in 2011. (It succeeds earlier ARC -funded Centres going back to 2000.) It has research programs at seven Australian Universities: New South Wales, Melbourne, ANU, Griffith, Queensland, ADFA, and Sydney. It comprises four multi-University Work Package: Quantum Communication, Optical Quantum Computation, Silicon Quantum Computation, and Quantum Resources & Integration.

I am leader (with Prof. Lloyd Hollenberg) of the Quantum Resources & Integration Work-Package, and also a member of the Executive Committee of the Centre.

Griffith University hosts two programs, a Quantum Information Theory Program headed by me, and an experimental Optical Quantum Information Program headed by Prof. Geoff Pryde.

My Theory Program supports wide-ranging theoretical research in quantum information, underpinning both quantum communication and quantum computation, and uncovering new implications and applications of the quantum information perspective. For more information see the Program Page on the CQCT website.


Positions Available

Unfortunately I am not able to offer any post-doctoral positions at the present time.  

However
, the Australian Research council offers Early Career Researchers Awards and other Fellowships, while Griffith University has a Postdoctoral and Research Fellowship Scheme (which requires half-funding from me however). After reading the material, if you are interested then please contact me.

New PhD students interested in studying in my group are welcome. Scholarships are available for domestic and overseas students with 1st Class Honours or equivalent (typically >80% in the 4th or higher year of tertiary studies, including a research project equivalent to at least one semester of full time study).
Please contact me if you are interested. For details about how to apply please see http://www.griffith.edu.au/science-aviation/centre-quantum-dynamics/student-opportunities
