Postdoc position
We are opening a one-year postdoc position in the area of theoretical quantum information theory. The postdoc is expected to work in close collaboration with core members of RCQI on topics of their common interests (quantum communication, quantum complexity theory, quantum simulations, quantum foundations, etc.). Basic salary is 1400 eur / month, however, additional funds, depending on the focus and performance, are expected. The position is offered for one year, but there is a possibility for one-year extension. The position is funded by Institute of Physics of Slovak Academy of Sciences.
       The application consists of CV (including list of publications), research statement (short summary of personal research interests and plans), and three names of potential referees we might ask for recommendation. Please send all this information to Mario Ziman by email (ziman@savba.sk) before February 28th. We are aiming to start as early as possible.
       Selected candidates will be interviewed (online) and/or invited to give a seminar at our research center. The research performance and experience of the candidate will be the only selection criteria.

Grover search under localized dephasing
Decoherence in quantum searches, and in the Grover search, in particular, has already been extensively studied, leading very quickly to the loss of the quadratic speedup over the classical case, when searching for some target (marked) element within a set of size N. The noise models used were, however, almost always global. In this paper, we study Grover search under the influence of localized partially dephasing noise of rate p. We find that, in the case when the size k of the affected subspace is much smaller than N and the target is unaffected by the noise, namely when kp≪√N, the quadratic speedup is retained. Once these restrictions are not met, the quadratic speedup is lost. If the target is affected by the noise, the noise rate needs to scale as 1/√N to keep the speedup. We also observe an intermediate region, where if k∼Nμ and the target is unaffected, the speedup seems to obey Nμ, which for μ>0.5 is worse than the quantum, but better than the classical case. We also put obtained results for quantum searches into perspective of quantum walks and searches on graphs.
