PhD Scholarship in the Engineering of Hybrid Quantum Systems
Physical Sciences/Other Physical Sciences

A theoretical post-doctoral position is available for up to 30 months to investigate the "bad emitter regime" of cavity quantum electrodynamics, with the aim to develop a new generation of quantum devices exploiting decoherence for single photon or indistinguishable photon generation at room temperature. This regime where decoherence mostly affects the quantum emitter and not the optical resonator is completely specific to solid-state artificial atoms and cavities.

A post-doctoral position is available for up to 30 months to develop theoretical approaches in the growing field of thermodynamics of quantum information. The purpose of the work is to suggest and model experiments in close connection with experimental groups, with special emphasis on circuit QED and opto-mechanics of hybrid systems.

Applicants should have brought contributions in one or more of the following areas:
- theory of quantum optics
- theory of circuit QED
- theory of opto-mechanics
- foundations of quantum physics and quantum information

The positions are within the Quantum Optics and Quantum Simulators Group lead by Dr. Dimitris G. Angelakis in the Centre of Quantum Technologies (CQT) (http://www.quantumlah.org). The group's research interests span most aspects of theoretical quantum optics and its applications in implementations of quantum computation and quantum simulations.

Highly motivated candidates, with a strong research background in theoretical quantum optics, are sought to join a CQT group lead by Dimitris G. Angelakis. The current group consists of four postdocs, two PhD students and a number of visitors. The research to be undertaken lies in the interface of quantum optics, condensed matter and QIP with emphasis in the simulation of quantum many body effects with atomic, photonic and polaritonic systems.

PhD Contract MINECO-FPI 2013
A fully funded PhD Fellowship-Contract in Quantum Information and Strongly Correlated Systems is available to work under the
supervision of Prof. Miguel A. Martin-Delgado at the Departmento de Fisica Teorica I, Facultad de Ciencias Fisicas, Universidad
Complutense (Madrid, Spain). It covers a period of 4 years: 2-year fellowship plus 2-year contract.
The Fellowship-Contract is funded by the Research Grant FIS2012-33152 of Ministerio de Economia y Competitividad (MINECO)

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant position in the quantum information group of Professor Vlatko Vedral within the Oxford Martin School Programme on Bio-Inspired Quantum (www.oxfordmartin.ox.ac.uk/institutes/quantum). The selected researcher will collaborate with experimental groups within the Oxford Martin School consortium.

We are looking for a suitably qualified, self-driven individual to carry out independent research with focus on non-equilibrium phenomena in open and closed (quantum) systems. This research is part of the ERC Starting Grant 2013 project ESCQUMA that aims at exploring the equilibrium and out-of-equilibrium physics of many-body systems formed by atomic gases of highly excited atoms – so-called Rydberg atoms. The researcher will be an integral part of a team conducting research on this new physical system in search for novel collective phenomena and technological applications.

We are happy to announce the launching of the Doctoral Programme in the Physics and Mathematics of Information: Foundations of Future Information Technologies (DP-PMI).

The DP-PMI aims at providing advanced curricular and research training in the recent developments and fundamental challenges in information sciences and technologies.

The DP-PMI is hosted by Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), the School of Science and Engineering of the University of Lisbon, in Portugal, and eight associated research centres.
