PhD project in quantum information and the foundations of quantum theory.

A fully funded PhD position is available for a UK/EU student, project title "Quantum theory and the nature of time". This position is partially supported by a large grant from the Foundational Questions Institute. The aim is to investigate the connections between the mathematical formalism of quantum theory and facts about time, such as reversibility and irreversibility of physical laws. For more details, including an introduction and technical abstract, see here:

The purpose of this conference is to provide a technical forum for discussions in the latest developments in quantum-physics-based information security. Traditional approaches to information security rely on mathematical relationships associated with encryption keys and encryption algorithms to achieve practical security. Quantum computing is considered to be an emerging threat to these classical techniques.

We invite applications for an interdisciplinary postdoctoral position in quantum information theory and quantum gravity, starting in the fall of 2011. The successful candidate will be hosted by the Quantum Gravity group at the Max Planck Institute (Albert Einstein Institute) for Gravitational Physics, Potsdam, Germany (http://www.aei.mpg.de/), and co-hosted by the Quantum Information Theory at the University of Potsdam (http://www.jense.qipc.org/).

Quantum Information Science is one of the most dynamic areas of inter-disciplinary research involving a wide range of scientists ranging from physicists to computer scientists to mathematicians and engineers. The fundamental observation in this field is that any computation is essentially a physical process. The current relentless drive towards increasing speed and miniaturization of computers will eventually lead the computer industry into a molecular/atomic domain where seemingly strange quantum behavior takes over from familiar classical notions.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the University of Nottingham, UK. The Ultracold Atoms Group is the youngest group in the School of Physics and Astronomy. It is part of the Midlands Ultracold Atom Research Centre (MUARC), formed together with the Cold Atoms Group at The University of Birmingham. We started our work in 2008 and now have several laboratory setups with ultra-cold atomic gases.
