We are happy to announce the opening of the call for applications for the 2014/15 edition of the Doctoral Programme in the Physics and Mathematics of Information: Foundations of Future Information Technologies (DP-PMI).


PhD opportunity at the Quantum Technology group at Queen's (http://web.am.qub.ac.uk/wp/qo/)

A number of fully funded 3-year PhD studentships (DEL and EPSRC) are available at the Centre for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (CTAMOP), Queen's University Belfast to start in October 2014. Full funding (stipend and tuition fees) is available for a number of UK nationals or EU nationals who have lived in the UK for over 3 years prior to their application.

Applications are invited for the above post to work with Dr Gerardo Adesso at the School of Mathematical Sciences, Univeristy of Nottingham (UK) on a FQXI-funded project entitled “Quantum Informational Framework for Cybernetics”. The successful applicant will specialise in theoretical research on quantum information, quantum foundations, and complex quantum systems.

In our group at the University of Siegen (Germany) we are looking for a motivated PhD student in the field of quantum information theory. The research topics include:

* foundations of quantum mechanics, e.g. quantum contextuality
* theory of entanglement and correlations in complex systems
* statistical aspects of data analysis in quantum experiments

Applicants are expected to have a master / diploma in physics, experience in theoretical physics and interest in foundational questions of quantum mechanics.

Post-doctoral Fellowships

The Physics of Information Group, at Instituto de Telecomunicacoes (in Lisbon, Portugal), is seeking to hire two Post-doctoral Fellows to develop research in one of the following areas:

- quantum simulation, quantum information theory,
- quantum thermodynamics or quantum effects in biology.


The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will conduct research in quantum information theory at the highest international levels and translate research outcomes into high impact publications, presenting results at major conferences and assist in the supervision of PhD and honours students in the School of Physics. The postdoctoral fellow is expected to conduct cutting-edge research in the areas of quantum information theory, quantum computation, quantum metrology, and statistical mechanics & thermodynamics.

Applicants are invited for a postdoctoral position in theoretical and computational quantum thermodynamics.

The candidate should have strong background in quantum optics, quantum information theory and quantum thermodynamics. The successful candidate will conduct research in proposing, modelling and simulating quantum heat engines and quantum thermodynamic devices in nanoscale systems. The successful candidate will collaborate with an international team of engineers and scientist including faculty from biology, physics and electronics departments at Koc University.

Institute for Molecular Science (IMS) opens the opportunities for the Ph.D candidate visiting program . The term is from one year (April 2014 to March 2015) to three year. The visiting contract starts April 2014. Shikano group belongs at Research Center of Integrative Molecular Systems (CIMoS) http://cimos.ims.ac.jp/en/ and opens the opportunities for opening the Ph.D students and candidates with the financial support of the research assistants. The current projects are
