Adrian Kent will give a journal club on Google Plus about his paper on Tuesday the 23rd, 14:00 UK time! This will be a first trial for a potential series of journal clubs
done by g+ hangouts (group video chat). As they are currently restricted to 10 members it will happen on a first come, first served basis.

If you have technical questions please let me know, and make sure to connect to me on Google+.
Hope to see you there! Daniel

Post-doctoral Research Assistant, Department of Mathematics

Salary for the post is £32,106 per annum inclusive of London Allowance.

The Department of Mathematics is seeking to recruit a post-doctoral research assistant to work with Dr Jonathan Barrett in the areas of Quantum Information Theory, and Foundations of Quantum Theory. The position is available from the 1st September 2011 and will run for two years.

The   University   of   KwaZulu-­Natal   (UKZN)   seeks   to   appoint   top   quality   researchers   into   key  
strategic  areas  of  growth  and  development.  
These   positions   are   available   in   the   following   specialist   areas   within   the   College,   but   not  
Plant   Biotechnology;   Experimental   Quantum   Technology;   Land   use   and   Management  
(Environmental   Systems);   Marine   Systems;   Waste   Management   and   Pollution;;   Agricultural  

The Institute of Theoretical Physics invites applications for a position as a Research Assistant (EntgGr. (Salary Group) 13 TV-L) to be appointed as soon as possible. The position is limited to three years.
== Responsibilities and duties ==

This position is part of an ERC project aimed at applying quantum information theory techniques to quantum field theory and is therefore limited to three years. The objective of the project is to develop new theoretical and numerical tools to study quantum field theory.

== Employment conditions ==

We are happy to announce that, by decision of the QUIE2T Advisory Board of Experts and upon approval by the QUIE2T Coordination Steering committee, the 2011 European Quantum Information Young Investigator Award has been awarded jointly to:

Two postdoc positions are advertised in the approximately 30 member quantum group, led by Samson Abramsky and Bob Coecke:
The group has a has a multidisciplinary research activity including the areas of quantum foundations and quantum computation, category theory, computer science logic and AI including computational linguistics.

The Institute for Quantum Computing is inviting applications for postdoctoral positions in all aspects of quantum information processing, bridging areas from fundamental theory to physical implementations.

We are very sad to inform the quantum community that professor Roman Stanisław Ingarden, famous Polish physicist, passed away on the 12th of July 2011. Before his death he worked as professor emeritus at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. His scientific achievements have been recognised worldwide. In 1976 he published the paper 'Quantum Information Theory' which is, most probably, the first documented case of using the term 'quantum information theory'.
