CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
Postdoctoral Research Positions

The Center for the Physics of Information at the California Institute of Technology will have postdoctoral scholar positions available beginning in September 2009. Researchers interested in all aspects of the interface between information science and physical science are invited to apply. The appointment is contingent upon completion of a Ph.D.

Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics invites applications for postdoctoral positions in the areas of quantum gravity, string theory, quantum information, cosmology, quantum foundations and particle physics. We will consider applications in all of these areas. Exceptional applicants in related areas, such as condensed matter physics, are encouraged to apply. The postdoctoral positions are normally for a period of three years. Outstanding candidates may also be considered for a senior postdoctoral position with a five-year term.

How heavy or how big can an object be before losing its quantum properties and obeying to the laws of classical physics? This question drives many research groups all around the globe. Answers still remain to be given as currently there are no systems which allow observing the expected tiny signatures of quantum effects in macroscopic objects. The novel system developed in the MPG Junior Research Group “Laboratory of Photonics” led by Dr. Tobias Kippenberg could resolve this problem.

For years, physicists have been heralding the revolutionary potential of using quantum mechanics to build a new generation of supercomputers, unbreakable codes, and ultra-fast and secure communication networks. The brave new world of quantum technology may be a big step closer to reality thanks to a team of University of Calgary researchers that has come up with a unique new way of testing quantum devices to determine their function and accuracy.

ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences is a centre based in Castelldefels (Barcelona), devoted to the research and education of the optical and photonic sciences, at the highest international level. The ‘Quantum information with cold atoms and non-classical light’ research group, led by Prof. Morgan Mitchell, at ICFO is looking for Ph.D. students to work in the areas of experimental quantum optics, atomic physics, and quantum light-matter interfaces.

ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences is a centre based in Castelldefels (Barcelona), devoted to the research and education of the optical and photonic sciences, at the highest international level. In the research group "Quantum optics and quantum information with single atoms and photons" led by Jürgen Eschner we study experimentally the interaction of single trapped, laser-cooled ions and atoms with single photons. We are equally interested in the fundamental properties of such systems and in their application for quantum technologies.

ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences, a centre based in Castelldefels (Barcelona), devoted to the research and education of the optical and photonic sciences, at the highest international level, is looking for a highly-motivated post-doctoral researcher to develop and exploit new entangled photon sources based on integrated optical technologies.

ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences, a centre based in Castelldefels (Barcelona), devoted to the research and education of the optical and photonic sciences, at the highest international level, is currently offering a post-doctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in the field of Experimental Quantum Optics with Cold Atoms. The successful candidate will be part of the research group led by Dr. Morgan Mitchell.

A post-doc position for 1 year (eventually renewed for 1 more year) will open in September 2008, based at the Mathematics Department, Laboratoire Paul Painlevé, University of Lille 1, France. It is financed by the ANR grant Quantum Statistics.

Candidates from applied mathematics, statistics with a solid mathematical background or from theoretical physics are invited to send a full CV and a letter describing their research interests to statquant@free.fr

Net salary will be about 2000 euros/month (income tax excluded).
