We are looking for candidates to fill a postdoctoral position in quantum optics, many body physics and related areas at Instituto de Ciencias Nucleares, UNAM, Mexico City. The position is open for one year, with option for a second year, starting in February 2009. Salaries are internationally competitives.

The research areas include
- quantum optics
- algebraic methods applied to the quantum many body problem
- quantum phase transitions
- nuclear and subnuclear structure
- low energy models for baryons and mesons
- double beta decay.
- symmetries in molecules.

We are offering a PhD position in Quantum Optics and Quantum Many-Body Dynamics within the newly established Emmy Noether research group led by Dr. Michael Hartmann at the Physics Department of the Technical University Munich.

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate who has ideally already gained some research experience in theoretical quantum optics, quantum information theory and/or condensed matter theory.

3 PhD Scholarships in ultra-cold atomic gases and quantum information (Experimental Physics).

We invite applications to join our research effort in the area of ultra-cold atomic gases.
The project aims towards the development of a chip based system suitable for applications
for quantum information processing including the generation of Bose-Einstein condensates.
The successful applicant will have the opportunity to attend international conferences
in US/Europe/Asia and plays a vital role in the success of the project.

A PhD project to begin in late 2008 to early 2009 is available in the UQ Quantum Optics Lab in the area of advanced single molecule biosensing and biomechanics. This PhD project will focus primarily on developing a new ultrasensitive technique to monitor single small biomolecules in real time. This technique will be applied to study molecular dynamics of biologically relevant kinetic molecules. Ultrahigh quality integrated optical microresonators offer, in principle, a far more sensitive method to monitor such systems than any currently available.
