There are open PhD and postdoc positions in the new experimental quantum gases group led by Leticia Tarruell at ICFO. The group's research will focus on simulating condensed-matter physics problems using degenerate Bose and Fermi gases in non-standard optical lattices. Specific topics of interest include graphene and topological phases, quantum phase transitions in magnetic systems and multi-orbital models.

This is the 21st edition of a series of workshops started in the 90s within a European project aimed at collaborating with Central-European countries. Since then, it has evolved into an important annual gathering of European researchers working in the field including the participants coming from around the world. The locations of the conference now go well beyond Central Europe, although the name has remained.

Start date: flexible.
Duration: up to 3 years.
Closing date for applications: September 15, or until the position is filled.

Project: Interfacing ultra-cold atoms with solid-state materials
Salary from £36,929 per annum in accordance with the EC Marie Curie financial guidelines for this scheme.

One post doc position in theoretical quantum optics is available in the group and Anders S. Sørensen. For more information see:

Please note the unusual starting time of 10pm UK time due to the speaker being in Australia.

The physics of quantum information team at the physics department of the Université de Sherbrooke invites applications for up to two postdoctoral positions in the groups of Alexandre Blais and of Bertrand Reulet. In addition to being able to pursue their own research agendas, the successful applicants will be involved in the group’s activities, which includes:

- Blais’ group: Theoretical aspects of superconducting qubits, circuit quantum electrodynamics, quantum optics in solid-state devices, theory of quantum limited amplifiers, ...

The new theory group led by Oriol Romero-Isart at the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI Innsbruck, Austria) announces the opening of PhD and PostDoc positions, to be filled in from 1st November 2013. PhD appointments are for up to 4 years, while PostDoc appointments are for 1+1 years.

Research Fellow (Quantum Information Processing/Quantum Many-Body Systems) at Queen's University Belfast

A postdoctoral position is available immediately for up to 33 months (from early September 2013), to undertake theoretical research in quantum effects in mesoscopic systems, including quantum many-body and hybrid systems.

Applicants will hold (or be about to obtain) a relevant PhD in one of the following fields:

• Theoretical quantum optics;

• Theoretical condensed matter physics;

• Theoretical quantum information processing.
