The AtomChip Lab (www.bgu.ac.il/atomchip) at Ben-Gurion University (BGU) is searching for high quality candidates in a variety of fields, including, research into chip fabrication for quantum optics chips with atoms, ions and photons, fundamental research into atom optics with cold atoms, and applicative research which we are conducting in collaboration with the high-tech industry into atomic clocks and magnetic sensors with both hot and cold atoms. Our sub-group in theory also has open positions for qualified candidates.

# PostDoc

There are postdoc and PhD positions available in Mathematical Physics/Quantum Information Theory in the Department of Mathematics at the Technical University in Munich (Germany). Applicants should be

• mathematicians, theoretical physicists or computer scientists,

• interested in mathematical physics, theoretical computer science, quantum information theory and/or other fields of quantum theory and its foundations,

• willing to contribute to undergraduate math education.

We invite applications for an interdisciplinary postdoctoral position in quantum information theory and quantum gravity, starting in the fall of 2011. The successful candidate will be hosted by the Quantum Gravity group at the Max Planck Institute (Albert Einstein Institute) for Gravitational Physics, Potsdam, Germany (http://www.aei.mpg.de/), and co-hosted by the Quantum Information Theory at the University of Potsdam (http://www.jense.qipc.org/).

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the University of Nottingham, UK. The Ultracold Atoms Group is the youngest group in the School of Physics and Astronomy. It is part of the Midlands Ultracold Atom Research Centre (MUARC), formed together with the Cold Atoms Group at The University of Birmingham. We started our work in 2008 and now have several laboratory setups with ultra-cold atomic gases.
