I have ERC funding for a postdoc in quantum computing (specifically: quantum algorithms, communication complexity, applications to other areas). If you're good and you're interested: send me an e-mail with your CV. I'm looking for people whose primary focus and track-record is in computer science aspects, not physics.
UvA students: if you want to talk to me, please make an email appointment first. Don't just come to my CWI office unannounced; chances are I'm either absent or busy.
Foreign students: I don't supervise undergrad summer internships unless they are exceptionally well in tune with my research, so please don't send me your generic internship applications.

I am a researcher at the Algorithms and Complexity group of CWI (Dutch Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science) and part-time full professor at the ILLC of the University of Amsterdam. I'm also a member of QuSoft. A long time ago I was a PhD student at CWI and ILLC, and then a postdoc at UC Berkeley. My main scientific interests are quantum computing and complexity theory.
