We are currently offering a PhD position for motivated people interested in studying experimental quantum optics and quantum communication. The position is in the Group of Applied Physics, led by Profs Nicolas Gisin and Hugo Zbinden, at the <a href="http://www.gapoptic.unige.ch">University of Geneva</a>. The successful candidate can start immediately.

Sami Mitra at APS Physics writes: ''Whether quantum dots will prove to be reliable building blocks for a quantum computer will depend on how well we measure and control their charge and spin.

* 6 Phd student positions.
* Recruitment: September 23-24, 2010.
* Deadline: September 20, 2010.

The main aim is to conduct the state-of-the-art research during the preparation of PhD theses within 4 years. At the same time the programme aims at intensifying international cooperation of the Polish research units. Each Phd Student is expected to spent from 6 to 24 months in the collaborating foreign laboratories.

The AtomChip Lab (www.bgu.ac.il/atomchip) at Ben-Gurion University (BGU) is searching for high quality candidates in a variety of fields, including, research into chip fabrication for quantum optics chips with atoms, ions and photons, fundamental research into atom optics with cold atoms, and applicative research which we are conducting in collaboration with the high-tech industry into atomic clocks and magnetic sensors with both hot and cold atoms. Our sub-group in theory also has open positions for qualified candidates.

James Dacey at PhysicsWorld writes: ''Just a small number of bad referees can significantly undermine the ability of the peer-review system to select the best scientific papers. That is according to a pair of complex systems researchers in Austria who have modelled an academic publishing system and showed that human foibles can have a dramatic effect on the quality of published science. <!--break-->Stefan Thurner and Rudolf Hanel at the Medical University of Vienna set out to make an assessment of how the peer-review system might respond to incompetent refereeing.
