The quantum control group at Aberystwyth University have developed a Python module for quantum optimal control. The module has been incorporated into QuTiP (Quantum Toolbox in Python) and is now part of the official release 3.1.0, which was announced on 1 Jan 2015. The module provides a method for determining control pulses for quantum systems via GRAPE, that is easy to configure, and runs on a free-to-use, open, and scalable platform.

Applications are invited for postdoctoral positions in the group of Andris Ambainis at the Faculty of Computing, University of Latvia. Our research group is interested in the following research topics:
- quantum algorithms and complexity theory;
- quantum communication, quantum information theory and cryptography;
- connections between quantum computing and classical computer science (using ideas from quantum information to solve classical problems);
- using ideas from quantum information to study physical systems.
