3 PhD Scholarships in ultra-cold atomic gases and quantum information (Experimental Physics).
We invite applications to join our research effort in the area of ultra-cold atomic gases.
The project aims towards the development of a chip based system suitable for applications
for quantum information processing including the generation of Bose-Einstein condensates.
The successful applicant will have the opportunity to attend international conferences
in US/Europe/Asia and plays a vital role in the success of the project.
A PhD project to begin in late 2008 to early 2009 is available in the UQ Quantum Optics Lab in the area of advanced single molecule biosensing and biomechanics. This PhD project will focus primarily on developing a new ultrasensitive technique to monitor single small biomolecules in real time. This technique will be applied to study molecular dynamics of biologically relevant kinetic molecules. Ultrahigh quality integrated optical microresonators offer, in principle, a far more sensitive method to monitor such systems than any currently available.
A PhD project in optical microresonator based quantum opto-mechanical systems is available at the UQ Quantum Optics lab, to begin in late 2008 or early 2009. This project will experimentally investigate macroscopic mechanical systems in the never-before-observed quantum regime. These systems have the potential to test our understanding of quantum physics and the physical world; to provide new quantum technologies applicable to advanced computing and communication systems; and to enable ultrasensitive sensing technologies.
A postdoctoral research fellowship is available in the Queensland Quantum Optics Laboratory. The successful candidate will work with PhD students on the development of quantum technologies based on integrated optical microresonators. These will include quantum opto-mechanical systems (QOMS) based on radiation pressure coupling of mechanical and optical degrees of freedom, advanced single molecule biosensors, and fibre coupled integrated quantum information networks.
This fellowship is a full-time three-year fixed-term fellowship funded under the recently established Perimeter Institute — Australia Foundations (PIAF) partnership. The Australian side involves Griffith University, the University of Queensland, and the University of Sydney. The successful applicant will be based at Griffith University in Brisbane, but will be supported to spend three months per year visiting other partners, split between Sydney and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Canada.
The Mathematics Department of Saint Anselm College invites applications for two tenure-track appointments, to begin fall 2008. We are looking for excellence in teaching and scholarship. Saint Anselm College is an undergraduate, liberal arts college. The teaching load is 3/3, and the class sizes are small. There is little teaching below the rigorous calculus level (at most, one course a semester).
We are currently offering several postdoctoral positions to highly motivated and well-qualified young researchers who intend to enhance their career in the field of quantum information science. The successful candidates will work in the research group for quantum information theory led by Prof. Jens Eisert at the University of Potsdam in the Berlin-Potsdam metropolitan area.
The positions will be funded either by the EU project COMPAS (Computing with Mesoscopic Photonic and Atomic States) or by the European Young Research Investigator Award of the group leader.

Researchers at the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a technique that could make quantum cryptography significantly cheaper to implement, moving it nearer to possible commercial acceptance.
