The Aspuru-Guzik group at the department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University is currently offering a one year (renewable to two years) postdoctoral position for a project on theoretical investigation of simulating physical/chemical systems with quantum computing devices.

Scientific IT Specialist

Scope of Position:

The Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (PI) seeks a creative individual with experience in both scientific research and information technology (IT) to fill a new hybrid research / IT position within the Institute. The successful applicant will bring his / her own vision to the position and help define it. A key aspect of the position is to assist PI’s scientific staff in making effective use of IT resources. We expect this position’s activities to evolve over time as needs and opportunities arise.

We are currently offering postdoctoral positions and a PhD position to highly motivated and well-qualified young researchers who intend to enhance their career in the field of quantum information science, quantum many-body theory or quantum optics. The successful candidates will work in the research group for quantum information theory led by Prof. Jens Eisert at the University of Potsdam and the Institute for Advanced Study Berlin in the Berlin-Potsdam metropolitan area.

The physics of quantum information group at the department of physics of the Universite de Sherbrooke invites applications for up to three postdoctoral positions. The group is composed of three faculty members, Alexandre Blais, Michel Pioro-Ladrière and David Poulin, whose research interests cover both theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum information science. The successful applicants will be involved in the group’s activities, which includes:

- Experimental realization of spin qubits in various materials (GaAs, SiGe, NV centers,...)

Anne McLaren Fellowships 2010

Applications are invited for these prestigious postdoctoral fellowships funded by the University and targeted at excellent women scientists and engineers, under-represented in these subjects, who wish to establish a research career in the UK . The Fellowships will commence in October 2010.
