This summer school is the 11th edition of a highly successful series of school, with previous editions held in Calgary, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, and Waterloo. It follows the tradition of educating young researchers (prospective and current graduate students, as well as postdocs) on the rapidly-evolving field of quantum information science and brings together the world's experts from different areas.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Ion Quantum Technology and Nanoscience / Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Ion Quantum Technology and Nanoscience position in the Ion Quantum Technology Group in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Sussex. The duration of the position is originally for 1 year with the possibility of an extension for a further 2.5 years based on research requirements. The position is part of an EPSRC funded £1.4M Leadership fellowship for the development of quantum technology with nanofabricated ion trap chips.

A position for experimental research in the fabrication and characterization of carbon-based materials and devices is available immediately, until April 2013. The primary materials will be single-walled carbon nanotubes filled with fullerene molecules containing spin-active species. The research will involve fabricating devices with non-standard geometries, filling them with endohedral fullerenes, structural characterization by force and electron microscopy, and electrical characterization.
