With the new project "Robust Quantum Information and Metrology" at Macquarie University we have two PhD scholarships to fill. In Australia a PhD is normally 3-4 years in duration and there is no coursework. The scholarships cover the university fees, and provide an annual stipend of about $23,000, with some support for relocation. <!--break--> We have just purchased a new TESLA Personal Supercomputer, with more computing power than the world's most powerful computer in 2000.

In our group at the University of Siegen (Germany) we are looking for a motivated PhD student in the field of quantum information theory. The research topics include

* theory of multiparticle entanglement
* statistical aspects of data analysis in quantum experiments
* foundations of quantum mechanics, e.g. the Kochen-Specker theorem

Applicants are expected to have a master / diploma in physics, experience in theoretical physics and interest in foundational questions of quantum mechanics.

The newly established quantum information group at Freiburg University invites applications for PhD and postdoctoral positions.

We work on a broad array of topics in quantum information theory, many-body theory, and mathematical physics. In addition, we aim to strengthen our profile in other areas of applied math, in particular on problems related to compressed sensing, matrix completion and other topics in machine learning theory. Please visit our web site www.qc.uni-freiburg.de for further information.
