Quantum Optics and Quantum Information
at Heriot-Watt

We have an OPEN PhD position on Quantum Digital Signatures. Please contact Dr Erika Andersson for more details, including how to apply. Full funding is available for UK and EU candidates and part funding for overseas students.

We are interested in quantum information science, the foundations of quantum mechanics, and quantum optics.

We are part of QuiSco, a network of researchers interested in quantum information.
