I would be interested in hosting/supporting a postdoctoral fellow working in Quantum Random Walks and/or Quantum Game Theory. The deadline is soon! Please email michael.mcgettrick@nuigalway.ie to explore possibilities.

PhD opportunities in Quantum Random Walks and Quantum Game Theory. Deadline is very soon! (March 12 2013). Please email immediately michael.mcgettrick@nuigalway.ie if you may be interested.

PhD must be applied for through the Irish Research Council: http://www.irchss.ie/scheme/irish-research-council-government-ireland-po...

Two 16 month theoretical postdoctoral positions in the topic of noisy quantum information processing are opening at the Department of Mathematics in Brunel University, west London, to start in summer 2013.

Applications are invited for postdoctoral positions in the group of Andris Ambainis at the Faculty of Computing, University of Latvia. Our research group is interested in the following research topics:
- quantum algorithms and complexity theory;
- quantum communication, quantum information theory and cryptography;
- connections between quantum computing and classical computer science;
- using ideas from quantum information to study physical systems (quantum Hamiltonian complexity).

We are looking for a motivated PhD student who is interested to work at the interface between the foundations of quantum mechanics and particle physics. The project aims at the investigation of possible Bell inequality violations in systems of neutral mesons and the modeling of the relevant decay processes with methods from quantum optics.

The purpose of the meeting is to gather experts and young researchers working in the field of cold atoms at the interface with solid state physics in order to explore the state of the art and discuss the most fruitful perspectives.

There is no registration fee to attend the meeting but interested participants are required to notify the organiser by sending an e-mail to: samanta.piano@nottingham.ac.uk.

The Quantum Information Group at the Institute of Theoretical Physics invites applications for positions for three

Research Assistants (67 % - 100%)
Salary Scale 13 TV-L

to be appointed as soon as possible.

These positions are parts of different fundings and therefore differently limited. They are open for Postdocs, as well as graduate students.

Understanding physics from the point of view of information led to the emergence of many new fields over the last years. These fields correspond to different approaches to the notion of information, from the perspective of mathematics, computer science, and philosophy. This workshop aims to represent all of these and their interaction with quantum physics. It is organized jointly by the quantum information group of LTCI, Telecom ParisTech, and CEA-LARSIM.

We'd like to announce the next Q+ hangout and hope to see you there!

As usual, we will reserve space in the hangout itself for those watching as a group. Comment below to reserve a seat. The talk will be livestreamed for everyone else.

Title: Exponential decay of correlations implies area law

The meeting aims to bring together researchers on the foundations of quantum theory from across all the institutions in London to facilitate collaboration and training of early career researchers. Details are as follows:
There is no fee to attend this meeting, but registration is required so that we know how many people to cater for, since we will be providing lunch and refreshments during the day. To register, please send an email to
