The QTea Postgraduate Symposium (QTeaPS) is a joint organised event by research fellows in the Marie Curie ITN on Quantum Sensor Technologies and Applications (QTea) network. The symposium will be hosted at the Institute of Laser Physics in the University of Hamburg and is aimed at experimental and theoretical physics postgraduate students. The main focus of the event will be on the growing fields of gravitational probing, rotation sensing, magnetic sensors, surface probing, atomic clocks and precision spectroscopy.

The Advanced Technology Institute (ATI) at the University of Surrey is looking to employ a full time Post Doctoral Researcher for a fixed term position of two years to participate in the major EPSRC ADDRFSS programme (Atomically Deterministic Doping and Readout For Semiconductor Solotronics) with a potential for extension (project ending is 31 January 2020).

The 2015 International Summer School on Quantum Information Computing & Control (QuICC) will be held between the 31st August and 4th September at Warwick University. This event is organised by students from the doctoral training centres at Imperial College London. It aims to bring together experimental and theoretical physicists studying quantum phenomena in a variety of systems. Over the course of five days, the invited speakers will give three lectures each on their chosen topics.
