Postdoctoral Positions in “Quantum optics and quantum many-body effects”

The positions are within a CQT research project led by Dimitris Angelakis in the Centre for Quantum Technologies Singapore. We are looking for highly motivated candidates who preferably have a strong research background in theoretical quantum optics. Exceptional candidates from condensed matter theory (especially from strongly correlated and/or topological quantum systems) and quantum information theory will also be considered.

Application deadline:

Applications are invited for a 1-2 years long postdoctoral position to work with Dr. Hab. Andrzej Dragan on the interdisciplinary field of relativistic quantum information. The research is aiming at exploiting relativity to improve quantum information tasks and studying quantum information protocols in the presence of gravity. Candidates must be motivated, confident and creative. They must have a PhD in physics and experience with quantum theory and relativity. Knowledge of quantum information and quantum optics is also desirable.

Recent developments in quantum technology, both in theory and experiments, have opened new perspectives for exploring equilibrium and nonequilibrium properties of strongly correlated many-body systems. In recent years the focus have shifted from traditional entropic approaches to the study of more complex measures of quantum correlations such as entanglement spectrum, negativity, mutual information and etc.

The Physics of Information Group, at Instituto de Telecomunicacoes (in Lisbon, Portugal), is seeking to hire a Post-doctoral Fellow to develop research in quantum information theory or/and in quantum effects in biology.

The candidates are expected to have research experience in one of the above areas, or in general in: open quantum systems, quantum optics, condensed matter physics, biophysics, or information processing in biological systems.

Application timing

Applications should be submitted by 20 September 2015, but earlier applications are welcome.

We are happy to announce the opening of a two-year postdoctoral position in quantum information theory. The successful candidate will work at the interface of quantum nonlocality and the axiomatization of quantum mechanics with Profs. Miguel Navascués and Antonio Acín at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) (Vienna, Austria) and the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) (Barcelona, Spain), respectively. The succesful candidate will be based in Vienna and enjoy frequent collaborative visits to Barcelona.
