The School teaches a range of undergraduate and Honours courses, and conducts research in space plasma physics, quantum information processing and magnetic properties of materials, and applied physics in the areas of solar-thermal energy, photonics and fluid dynamics. The appointee will teach, supervise postgraduate students, and be active in research, administration and community service.

The University of KwaZulu-Natal is one of the top three Universities in South Africa and in the top 500 Universities globally. The School conducts research in space plasma physics, quantum information processing and communication, magnetic properties of materials, and applied physics (solar-thermal energy, photonics and fluid dynamics). The School seeks an experimental physicist at the Associate Professor or Full Professor level who will provide leadership in one of its research areas, or in a closely-related field.

The School of Mathematics and Physics of Queen’s University Belfast seeks to appoint a Lecturer in Quantum Information Theory by March 1st 2011 or as soon as possible thereafter. The successful candidate will be expected to undertake research in Quantum Information Theory within the Centre for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics and to contribute to teaching in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. In addition the successful candidate will be expected to undertake administrative duties as assigned.

A 2-year postdoctoral position in Quantum Information Science is opening in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of British Columbia in Spring 2011, in the group of Dr. Robert Raussendorf. Possible areas of research include - but are not restricted to - models of quantum computation, quantum error-correction and quantum algorithms.

We anticipate having an opening for a postdoctoral position in the research group of Prof. Mark Byrd within the next two or three months. Applications will be reviewed beginning December 1, 2010 and will continue until the position is filled. The position is for research in quantum error prevention methods. The applicant should have some knowledge of quantum error correcting codes and fault-tolerant quantum computing. Knowledge of other error prevention methods, such as dynamical decoupling controls and decoherence-free subspaces would be beneficial. Applications should be sent to:

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.

Applications are sought for a PhD studentship in condensed matter theory funded by the SEPnet collaboration. The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. J. Quintanilla at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL). There will be opportunities to collaborate with experimentalists working on these subjects at RAL’s ISIS neutron and muon source and with other theorists in the SEPnet collaboration.

The School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Leeds has a doctoral training grant available for UK and EU students. These prestigious awards are made by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). Awards are available in the area of Optical and Quantum Optical Communications.

WOMEN IN SCIENCE: This is your chance to get a two-years PostDoctoral Fellowship (with flexible conditions, research expenses and support for childcare) to join the dynamic and young Quantum Stochastics & Information group at the University of Nottingham (Dr G. Adesso, Dr I. Fuentes, Dr M. Guta).
