We offer two Ph.D. student positions in the project New fundamental bounds on correlations of a strictly quantum nature.

Speaker: Lorenzo Maccone, Universita' di Pavia,
Title: Quantum Time
We give a consistent quantum description of time, based on Page and Wootters' conditional probabilities mechanism, that overcomes the criticisms that were raised against similar previous proposals. In particular we show how the model allows to reproduce the correct statistics of sequential measurements performed on a system at different times.
Applications are invited for two postdoctoral positions to work with Dr Gerardo Adesso on an ERC Starting Grant project entitled “Genuine quantumness in cooperative phenomena” funded by the European Research Council. The principal goal of the project is to analyse and challenge the quantum-classical border from a jointly fundamental and applicative viewpoint. The project is expected to deliver novel tools for the characterisation of quantumness in composite systems and to develop novel platforms for its practical utilisation in quantum technology applications.
Nuclear Theory Group invites applications to fill one or two postdoc positions. Applicants for these positions must have a Ph.D. degree, or foreign equivalent, and a strong record of published research in nuclear or condensed matter theory. We are looking for a candidate with knowledge of methods of many body quantum mechanics and possessing programming skills in Fortran and C. Knowledge of MPI and CUDA is an advantage.
Nuclear Theory Group invites applications to fill one or two doctoral positions. Applicants for these positions must have a M.Sc. degree, or foreign equivalent, and some experience in research in theoretical nuclear physics or condensed matter theory. Prospective candidate should have an interest in computational methods, and their application to solve physical problems. The successful candidate will join the international group working on the theoretical description of low energy nuclear reactions, dynamics of quantum gases and nuclear matter in neutron stars.
