CENTER FOR THE PHYSICS OF INFORMATION
CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
Postdoctoral Research Positions

The Center for the Physics of Information at the California Institute of Technology will have postdoctoral scholar positions available beginning in September 2009. Researchers interested in all aspects of the interface between information science and physical science are invited to apply. The appointment is contingent upon completion of a Ph.D.

Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics invites applications for postdoctoral positions in the areas of quantum gravity, string theory, quantum information, cosmology, quantum foundations and particle physics. We will consider applications in all of these areas. Exceptional applicants in related areas, such as condensed matter physics, are encouraged to apply. The postdoctoral positions are normally for a period of three years. Outstanding candidates may also be considered for a senior postdoctoral position with a five-year term.

How heavy or how big can an object be before losing its quantum properties and obeying to the laws of classical physics? This question drives many research groups all around the globe. Answers still remain to be given as currently there are no systems which allow observing the expected tiny signatures of quantum effects in macroscopic objects. The novel system developed in the MPG Junior Research Group “Laboratory of Photonics” led by Dr. Tobias Kippenberg could resolve this problem.

For years, physicists have been heralding the revolutionary potential of using quantum mechanics to build a new generation of supercomputers, unbreakable codes, and ultra-fast and secure communication networks. The brave new world of quantum technology may be a big step closer to reality thanks to a team of University of Calgary researchers that has come up with a unique new way of testing quantum devices to determine their function and accuracy.

ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences is a centre based in Castelldefels (Barcelona), devoted to the research and education of the optical and photonic sciences, at the highest international level. The ‘Quantum information with cold atoms and non-classical light’ research group, led by Prof. Morgan Mitchell, at ICFO is looking for Ph.D. students to work in the areas of experimental quantum optics, atomic physics, and quantum light-matter interfaces.
