The quantum computation and information group at the University of Bristol offers a number of post-doctoral positions of two years duration, available for research in theoretical aspects of quantum information, quantum computation and foundations of quantum mechanics.

The Department (see http://www.damtp.cam.ac.uk/) invites applications for a post-doctoral research position to commence on 1 October 2011. The successful candidate will be associated with the Centre for Quantum Information and Foundations (formerly Centre for Quantum Computation) of the University of Cambridge (see http://cam.qubit.org), to work on a scientific research project on Mathematical Characterizations of Quantum Reality, funded by the John Templeton Foundation.

Hamish Johnston writes at PhysicsWorld: ''A small firm based in Canada that aims to build a commercially viable quantum computer has shown that an important part of its technology works. D-Wave Systems, which was spun-out of the University of British Columbia in 1999, has shown that a technique called quantum annealing can be used to make eight coupled quantum bits – or qubits – find their ground state.

Professor Immanuel Bloch, Director at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and Professor for experimental physics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich, has been elected by the EPS for the “2011 Prize for Fundamental Aspects of Quantum Electronics and Optics”. The award is given to him for his “pioneering work on exploring quantum many-body systems using ultracold quantum gases for quantum simulation and quantum information applications.”
