Quantum technology is a cutting-edge field aimed at harnessing the unique nature of quantum mechanics to perform tasks that are impossible with conventional technologies. The Optics Division at the University of Strathclyde will be a focal point of the EPSRC Quantum Technology Hubs, and has received significant funding from the recent call to expand our multi-disciplinary research in both experimental and theoretical fields. These full-time posts are available from 1st October, initially for two years with the possibility of extension to up to five years.

In the theory group of Prof. Uwe R. Fischer at Seoul National University, there is an opening for a Postdoc position for one year, with a possible extension by another year. Possible research topics are novel quantum phases in optical lattices, dipolar gases with strong correlations, the many-body physics of fragmented condensates, dynamical quantum phase transitions, the Kibble-Zurek mechanism of topological defect creation, and quantum state transfer in hybrid quantum systems.

Since its beginnings one of the main purposes of thermodynamics has been the optimization of devices. Commonly, processes are characterized as optimal if they are maximally fast or maximally efficient. Recent years have seen the development of various theoretical tools which tremendously broadened our understanding of such optimal processes, in quantum mechanics and in classical physics. A particular highlight are so-called shortcuts to adiabaticity -- finite time processes that mimic adiabatic dynamics without the requirement of slow driving.

We are currently offering a postdoctoral position to a highly motivated and well-qualified researcher who intends to enhance his or her career in the fields of quantum information theory and the theory of quantum simulations, funded by the new H2020 grant AQuS on quantum simulators. The successful candidate will work in the research group led by Jens Eisert at the Free University of Berlin. We are a young, internationally visible, leading group in these fields of research, driven by a stimulating climate of open discussion and creative thought.
