ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences, a centre based in Castelldefels (Barcelona, Spain), devoted to research and education of the optical and photonic sciences at the highest international level, is offering a postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment. The successful candidate will be part of an emerging project carried out by Prof Hugues de Riedmatten's newly established Quantum Photonics with Solids and Atoms group.

ID Quantique will be organizing the third Winter School on Practical Quantum Cryptography in January 2011 in the Swiss Alps. The goal of this program is to introduce, to a general audience of physicists and computer scientists with little or no background in practical quantum cryptography, this exciting topic in a relaxed and stimulating atmosphere. The program also includes hands-on tutorials, as well key note lectures by renowned researchers Nicolas Gisin (University of Geneva), Renato Renner (ETH Zurich) and Vadim Makarov (Norwegian University of Science and Technology).

Please mark your calendars for the European Workshop "From Quantum Foundations to Quantum Technologies - Challenges for Europe", which will take place on 15 December 2010 in Vienna, Austria. The workshop will host international key players in the field to jointly explore the prospects for future European quantum research at the interface between foundations and applications.

The School teaches a range of undergraduate and Honours courses, and conducts research in space plasma physics, quantum information processing and magnetic properties of materials, and applied physics in the areas of solar-thermal energy, photonics and fluid dynamics. The appointee will teach, supervise postgraduate students, and be active in research, administration and community service.

The University of KwaZulu-Natal is one of the top three Universities in South Africa and in the top 500 Universities globally. The School conducts research in space plasma physics, quantum information processing and communication, magnetic properties of materials, and applied physics (solar-thermal energy, photonics and fluid dynamics). The School seeks an experimental physicist at the Associate Professor or Full Professor level who will provide leadership in one of its research areas, or in a closely-related field.
