PhD

The Vienna Doctoral Program on Complex Quantum Systems opens the new call for application. New graduate students may be accepted to start in the program with October 2010.

The Vienna doctoral program on Complex Quantum Systems aims at providing young researchers with a comprehensive view of experimental and theoretical quantum physics. It puts a strong emphasis on quantum optics and quantum information in systems as various as photons, neutrons, mesons, atoms, molecules and solids.

Scientific IT Specialist

Scope of Position:

The Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (PI) seeks a creative individual with experience in both scientific research and information technology (IT) to fill a new hybrid research / IT position within the Institute. The successful applicant will bring his / her own vision to the position and help define it. A key aspect of the position is to assist PI’s scientific staff in making effective use of IT resources. We expect this position’s activities to evolve over time as needs and opportunities arise.

The University of Warsaw, Faculty of Physics, seeks to fill nine research positions supported by the project Photonic implementations of quantum-enhanced technologies starting on 1 January 2010. The project, funded under the TEAM programme operated by the Foundation for Polish Science, will focus on controlling quantum phenomena in photonic systems to enable new modes of information processing and communication.
