Today the Quantiki team (from left to right: Jarek Miszczak, Daniel Burgarth, Piotr Gawron) celebrates the 10th birthday of the site. Meeting at Institute of Theoretical and Applied Informatics, Polish Academy of Sciences, we discussed our achievements and exciting upcoming new features. We also ate an immense amount of tasty strawberries.
Congratulate us and share your views below or by email (quantiki.team@gmail.com)!

Welcome to Quantiki, the world's leading social portal for everyone involved in quantum information science. No matter if you are a researcher, a student or a fan of quantum theory, this is the place you are going to find useful and enjoyable! While here on Quantiki you can: browse our content, including fascinating and educative articles, then create your own account and log in to gain more editorial possibilities.

Add new content, such as information about upcoming quantum events, open positions for quantum scientists and existing quantum research groups. What's more: attach video abstracts of your publications and enjoy a worldwide popularity.

The project will support development of hardware and systems software for the integration of quantum and classical communications in optical networks. This will entail work on and around the interface between quantum key distribution (QKD) technology and high speed optical network transport.

You will preferably have a PhD in a technological / engineering area relevant for telecommunications and / or advanced high speed optical networking. Significant experience in these areas may be considered in lieu of a PhD.

The discovery of exotic phases of matters, which has been awarded with a Nobel-prize in 2016, remains one of the most active and important research fields in quantum many-body theory both from a physical as well as from a mathematical point of view.

Applications are invited (from students with a Masters Degree, or very good marks in a Bachelors Degree) for a Hardiman Scholarship at the National University of Ireland Galway. Please see http://www.nuigalway.ie/hardiman-scholarships/ for application details and get in touch with Dr. M. Mc Gettrick (michael.mcgettrick@nuigalway.ie) to discuss research projects. The deadline is imminent - February 17, 2017.
