The quest to create complex synthetic quantum systems from the bottom up is currently one of the most active and exciting areas of physics. It promises the ability to study new and advanced quantum mechanical effects for fundamental science and applications in quantum engineering. Typical experimental systems in this area are cold atoms and ions, nano-resonators, semiconductor quantum dots or superconducting quantum interference devices, with new and exciting ones added regularly. All of these allow large experimental control and detailed theoretical understanding.

The discussions at and around the next summit of the European Union heads of states and governments, which is scheduled for 22 and 23 November, will be decisive in determining the EU research budget for the next seven years. Several Member States are demanding severe cuts on the total EU budget and research will have to compete with other policy priorities.

Applications are invited for a one-year (renewable) postdoctoral position to work on topics of quantum effects in mesoscopic physics starting from 1 February 2013. The fellow will work within the Quantum Information team at Universidade Federal do ABC, São Paulo (Brazil) (http://flsemiao.wordpress.com/) under the supervision of Prof. F. L. Semiao and in very close collaboration with the Quantum Technology group at Queen's University Belfast (led by Dr. Mauro Paternostro and Dr.
