 Shortlisted candidates will be informed through email and called for  an online  interview.

DST Project under the QuEST scheme

 
Applications are invited from eligible candidates for a  position of  Junior Research Fellow (JRF) in a  project sponsored by  the Department of Science and Technology  (DST) under the scheme "Quantum Enabled Science and Technology" (QuEST)   at the Department of Physics, BITS-Pilani K K Birla Goa Campus, NH17B Zuarinagar, Goa.
 
Project Tile Geometric aspects of Quantum Correlations in Dynamics
Project Duration 3 years
Principal
Investigator (PI)
Dr. Radhika Vathsan
Project
Description
Mathematical aspects of quantum correlations for open systems and mixed states are a fundamental problem in quantum systems that are utilized in
quantum information processing. Much of current work involves algebraic and entropic study of quantum entanglement. This project addresses dynamic aspects quantum correlations from a geometric perspective, starting from the notion of information geometry and correlations between
probability distributions. We wish especially to study how these correlations evolve during quantum dynamics, and in the measurement process. We also wish to establish a connection with the
 lassical limit, which becomes relevant in the
quantum-classical transition natural to the
measurement process. This study will further aid the process of recognizing
decoherence mechanisms and their control, in particular applications to information encoding and decoding.

Fellowship Rs. 31,000/- per month for 2 years and Rs. 35,000/- per month in 3rd year.
