Work with us

Opportunities to work in or with the Quantum Informatics group.

We are always looking for enthusiastic and exciting new people to work with. If that's you, there are several options.

PhD studies

At least seven fully funded PhD positions are available at the University of Edinburgh specifically within the theme of Quantum Computing. For more information and to apply, see here. Deadline: 31 March 2024. Before you make an official application, it is a good idea to contact a potential supervisor to talk about possibilities and possible topics.

We are in the process of setting up a new PhD programme in Quantum Informatics, starting in September 2025. Register your interest to find out more details as soon as they become available.

Postdoctoral research

There are several ways to join the group as a postdoctoral researcher. We can support applications for University Research Fellowships, EPSRC Research Fellowships, Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowships, Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships, 1851 Research Fellowships, or other postdoctoral grants, including those from funding bodies outside of the UK. Contact a potential mentor to talk about opportunities.


We interact with companies in several ways, such as through the Quantum Computing Application cluster or other networks, through consultancy, or through direct collaboration on research projects. Contact our dedicated Business Development Manager Craig Skeldon for more information.
