This school is sponsored and organised by SEPnet (the South East Physics Network) and is aimed at PhD students and postdoctoral researchers who are interested in potential technological applications which rely on the properties of quantum mechanics to perform useful tasks with efficiency or scale beyond the limitations of current technology. Such devices obey Schroedinger's equations thereby employing the principle of superposition and entanglement to achieve its goal.

At the Hector Fellow Academy you get the opportunity to realize a self-developed research project under supervision of Hector Fellow Prof. Immanuel Bloch. The Hector Fellows are a community of outstanding professors from different research institutions across Germany. They have been honored by the Hector Foundation for their merit in research and teaching within natural sciences, informatics, mathematics, medicine / psychology and engineering. At the Academy they pass on their expertise to prospective young scientists.

The Paul Ehrenfest Best Paper Award for Quantum Foundations recognizes outstanding and influential research contributions to the foundations of quantum physics. The aim of the award is to raise awareness for the field of quantum foundations, and to draw attention to new and interesting achievements in this area without delay. It is awarded for the most significant publication in the foundations of quantum physics, theoretical or experimental, during one calendar year. Candidate publications must be published in a peer-reviewed journal.

In the group of Prof. Uwe R. Fischer at Seoul National University a position is open in the field of quantum many-body physics of ultracold gases, using the numerical method MCTDH-X. Possible topics include the application of the obtained quantum many-body states to quantum metrology and sensing, as well as many-body localization and the exploration of the properties of fragmented condensate many-body states.
Initial appointment is for one year with a possible extension to two years. Salary is according to the Korean postdoc scale.

The school "Nanotechnology meets Quantum Information (NanoQI)" provides a broad overview of different implementations of quantum information processing and quantum technologies. The school is aimed at PhD students and young postdocs interested in quantum information processing and quantum technologies.

The project will support development of hardware and systems software for the integration of quantum and classical communications in optical networks. This will entail work on and around the interface between quantum key distribution (QKD) technology and high speed optical network transport.

You will preferably have a PhD in a technological / engineering area relevant for telecommunications and / or advanced high speed optical networking. Significant experience in these areas may be considered in lieu of a PhD.
