Master PhD scholarships in Theoretical Physics

at Macquarie University in Australia

Two PhD scholarships in theoretical physics at Macquarie University, Sydney Australia available to fill (one of which is targeted for an Australian national). The scholarships cover the national/international fees, an annual stipend of $30,000, and some relocation support. In Australia a PhD is normally 3-4 years in duration and there is no coursework. The research will focus on the interface between many-body physics and quantum information including:

  • Topologically order and dynamics of anyons.
  • Connections between quantum simulations and classical statistical models.
  • Many body resources for quantum information processing (ground code models, symmetry protected topological order, etc.).
  • Implementations of quantum simulations in atomic/optical/solid state systems.

The position is part of the Australian Research Council funded Centre for Engineered Quantum Systems. The research will include travel opportunities to collaborate with the other project nodes in Sydney, Perth and Brisbane, as well as our international partners in Europe and North America.

To apply please email ( ) a CV, your academic transcripts at MSc, MPhil, BSc levels, copies of all thesis (irrespective of whether in english or not), and pdfs of all relevant publications or preprints. Label the Subject of your email as “PhD Application”.

Application Deadline : 31 October 2012
