The School of Mathematics, University of Bristol, is seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Quantum Computing Theory. A Lecturer holds an indefinite appointment roughly equivalent to an Assistant or Associate Professor in the US system (depending on career stage); a Senior Lecturer/Reader is equivalent to an Associate Professor.

We are looking for world-class researchers in any area in the theory of quantum computing. The post-holder will be responsible for her or his own research programme, carry out appropriate administrative tasks and deliver excellence in teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

The post will be integrated within the interdepartmental Quantum Information Theory Group, one of the world’s leading groups in quantum information theory; see https://www.bristolmathsresearch.org/qitgroup/. The new post arises from our recent award of a substantial research grant, an EPSRC Prosperity Partnership, in association with Google and UCL, see http://www.bristol.ac.uk/news/2018/september/google-partnership-quantum-software.html.

The appointment is part of a major strategic expansion of the School of Mathematics, which is about to move to a substantial Grade-II listed property, providing office space for over 100 academics, 100 post-graduate students and 80 post-docs. The building is currently being transformed into a state-of-the-art mathematics teaching and research facility. The University is a member of the prestigious Russell Group, is ranked among the top 50 universities in the world, and 9th in the UK in the latest QS World University Rankings. The Shanghai Ranking of Academic Subjects 2017 has ranked Bristol’s School of Mathematics amongst the top 40 mathematics departments worldwide.

Informal enquires are welcome and can be directed to Prof Jonathan Robbins (Head of School, maths-recruitment@bristol.ac.uk) as well as Prof Noah Linden (n.linden@bristol.ac.uk) or Dr Ashley Montanaro (ashley.montanaro@bristol.ac.uk).

The School of Mathematics is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aiming at advancing women’s careers in mathematics and we therefore particularly welcome applications from women for this post. http://www.maths.bris.ac.uk/admin/life/women/

Please note that it is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure their referees send a letter of reference by email to
maths-recruitment@bristol.ac.uk by the deadline of 24 February 2019.

We appreciate and value difference, seeking to attract, develop and retain a diverse mix of talented people that will contribute to the overall success of Bristol and help maintain our position as one of the world’s leading universities.
