This fellowship is a full-time three-year fixed-term fellowship funded under the recently established Perimeter Institute — Australia Foundations (PIAF) partnership. The Australian side involves Griffith University, the University of Queensland, and the University of Sydney. The successful applicant will be based at Griffith University in Brisbane, but will be supported to spend three months per year visiting other partners, split between Sydney and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Canada.

The Mathematics Department of Saint Anselm College invites applications for two tenure-track appointments, to begin fall 2008. We are looking for excellence in teaching and scholarship. Saint Anselm College is an undergraduate, liberal arts college. The teaching load is 3/3, and the class sizes are small. There is little teaching below the rigorous calculus level (at most, one course a semester).

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

The positions will be funded either by the EU project COMPAS (Computing with Mesoscopic Photonic and Atomic States) or by the European Young Research Investigator Award of the group leader.

Researchers at the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a technique that could make quantum cryptography significantly cheaper to implement, moving it nearer to possible commercial acceptance.

This post, funded by the UK's EPSRC, is required to develop coherent states as a resource in quantum technology. The successful candidate will spend two years at Queen's University Belfast, working with Professor Myungshik Kim on a joint project with Professor Sir Peter Knight at Imperial College and Professor Sougato Bose at University College London.

Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Gleb Gribakin (email: g.gribakin@qub.ac.uk)
