Course Level: This Studentship is available for pursuing PhD degree level at University College London, UK.
Scholarship Provider: University College London (UCL)
Scholarship can be taken at: UK
Eligibility: Applicants should have an excellent first degree in Physics, Theoretical Physics, Computer Science or Mathematics (first class or its international equivalent). The post is only open to UK/EU citizens.
Scholarship Open for International Students: PhD Studentship is only open to UK/EU citizens.
Scholarship Description: The Graduate Student will pursue research on adiabatic quantum computation/quantum annealing by performing numerical and analytical tests of associated concepts, as well collecting data using the D-Wave Systems Josephson junction device-based platform. The starting point will be to perform test experiments on the USC/Lockheed Martin D-Wave machine in Los Angeles, interrogating the accessible variables to determine the nature of the statistical sampling for the model problems of interacting spins which the processors directly implement. After successful completion of this phase of the project, the student will shift to implementing the solution of a problem of current interest in physics or biomedicine on a machine with a Josephson junction array architecture. The work will be carried out in collaboration with the group of Prof Aeppli and his broader network of experimental and theoretical colleagues, and could also entail experiments on other quantum systems in LCN laboratories and external user facilities.
