Quantum cryptography aims to achieve security from fundamental physical principles, such as the quantum mechanical phenomena of entanglement and Heisenberg's uncertainty principle. In the last few years significant progress has been made in the theoretical understanding of quantum cryptography and its technological feasibility has been demonstrated experimentally. Quantum cryptography is therefore regarded as one of the most promising candidates for a future quantum technology.

There are posdocs opportunities at the Quantum Information group of the Federal Fluminense University (http://infoptics.if.uff.br/doku.php?id=startpage), in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The positions are to work at the interface between condensed matter and quantum information theory, under joint supervision of Prof. Thiago de Oliveira (tro@if.uff.br) and Prof. Marcelo Sarandy (msarandy@if.uff.br).

Over the past two decades the field of Quantum Foundations experienced a remarkable growth, with many researchers joining the community and with a flourishing of new exciting results. This process has been boosted by the injection of fresh ideas from Quantum Information, which offered a new angle on the counterintuitive world of Quantum Mechanics and inaugurated a new pragmatic approach. Insights from Quantum Information have recently led to reconstructions of Quantum Theory from operational principles and to the discovery of unexpected links between fundamental quantum features.

Applications are now open for postdoctoral fellowships at Perimeter Institute (PI) to begin in Fall 2012. PI hosts the world’s largest group of independent postdoctoral fellows in foundational theoretical physics. At PI, Postdoctoral Fellows are encouraged to formulate and pursue their own chosen lines of research, across all fields of theoretical physics, within an exceptionally supportive environment. They enjoy ample opportunities to interact with senior scientists, host collaborators, organize workshops and conferences, and participate in the training of graduate students.
