Dear colleagues, we hope that your PhDs and/or postdoctoral staff may be interested in the following event:

Three two-year postdoctoral research associate positions are available immediately in the group of Barry Sanders, who is the iCORE Chair of Quantum Information Science and Director of the University of Calgary's Institute for Quantum Information Science (IQIS). Research foci are machine learning for quantum measurement, multi-partite quantum communication protocols, quantum simulation, electron transport in protein complexes, and theoretical support for the the experimental research groups of Drs Barclay, Lvovsky, and Tittel in IQIS.

1) postdoctoral level
2) area: quantum random walks
3) 9 months duration
4) based at the National University of Ireland, Galway, Ireland
5) non-irish citizens only

Submission deadline:

List of topics:

Foundations of quantum physics
Non-equilibrium quantum statistical physics
Quantum thermodynamics
Quantum measurement, entanglement and coherence
Dissipation, dephasing, noise and decoherence
Quantum optics
Macroscopic quantum behavior, e.g. cold atoms, Bose-Einstein condensates
Physics of quantum computing and quantum information
Mesoscopic, nano-electromechanical and nano-optical systems
Spin systems and their dynamics
Biological systems, molecular motors
Cosmology, gravitation and astrophysics

The workshop is devoted to latest developments in quantum information:

- topological quantum computation, monoidal categories, modular functors, topological quantum field theory, quantum knots, anyons and fractional quantum Hall effect.
- measurement based quantum computation and optical lattices.
- adiabatic quantum computation and Josephson junction.
- simulation of physical systems, frustration free models, matrix product states and AKLT.
- measures of entanglement and spin chains.
- quantum state transfer

The Laboratoire d'Information Quantique at the University of Brussels invites applications for a postdoctoral position. The group is composed of two faculty members, Serge Massar and Stefano Pironio, whose research interests cover both theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum information science.

We are currently offering a postdoctoral position and two PhD positions to highly motivated and well-qualified young researchers who intend to enhance their scientific career in the field of Quantum Information Theory and/or Quantum Optics. The positions are associated with the research group of Barbara Kraus at the Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of Innsbruck, Austria. The appointed candidates could start at their earliest convenience.

This is a third edition of the Winter School on Practical Quantum Cryptography taking place in the Swiss Alps in January 2011.

The goal of this Winter School is to introduce, to a general audience of physicists and computer scientists with little or no background in practical quantum cryptography, this exciting topic in a relaxed and stimulating atmosphere. Special emphasis will be put on practical quantum cryptography system design. The emerging applications of this promising technology will also be discussed.
