For TUD diversity is an essential feature and a quality criterion of an excellent university. Accordingly, we welcome all applicants who would like to commit themselves, their achievements and productivity to the success of the whole institution.
We seek applications for a postdoctoral position in the design of resilient paradigms for the future quantum-classical Internet. The project "Resilience for the Quantum Internet - Q-TREX" aims to make quantum communication in research and industry usable for public communication networks by integrating quantum communication into future 6G networks and existing fixed networks. The focus is on the investigation, design and realization of an integrated end-to-end resilience for the future quantum-classical Internet. Investigating the failures and unavailabilities of the quantum software resources of the end-to-end network. The software elements may include operations, functionalities, and protocols of different layers of the protocol stack from the link layer to the application layer. Quantum system deviations will be analyzed in terms of faulty operations or complete unavailability. Next, analysis of the end-to-end system when multiple software faults occur simultaneously.
university and PhD degree in physics, mathematics, computer science or equivalent. Knowledge of quantum mechanics and focus on experimental physics is also an important metric. Candidates should be proficient in English and have good oral and written communication skills. Strong programming skills are highly recommended.
