We invite applications for an interdisciplinary postdoctoral position in quantum information theory and quantum gravity, starting in the fall of 2011. The successful candidate will be hosted by the Quantum Gravity group at the Max Planck Institute (Albert Einstein Institute) for Gravitational Physics, Potsdam, Germany (http://www.aei.mpg.de/), and co-hosted by the Quantum Information Theory at the University of Potsdam (http://www.jense.qipc.org/).

Quantum Information Science is one of the most dynamic areas of inter-disciplinary research involving a wide range of scientists ranging from physicists to computer scientists to mathematicians and engineers. The fundamental observation in this field is that any computation is essentially a physical process. The current relentless drive towards increasing speed and miniaturization of computers will eventually lead the computer industry into a molecular/atomic domain where seemingly strange quantum behavior takes over from familiar classical notions.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the University of Nottingham, UK. The Ultracold Atoms Group is the youngest group in the School of Physics and Astronomy. It is part of the Midlands Ultracold Atom Research Centre (MUARC), formed together with the Cold Atoms Group at The University of Birmingham. We started our work in 2008 and now have several laboratory setups with ultra-cold atomic gases.

James Dacey writes at PhysicsWorld: ''An international research group claims to have taken an essential step towards silicon-based quantum computing by entangling 10 billion identical quantum bits, or "qubits", inside a silicon crystal. This is the first time that "ensemble entanglement" has been demonstrated in a solid-state device, they claim. Where conventional computers store data as "bits" with value 1 or 0, in quantum computing data is stored as "qubits", which can hold more than one value at the same time.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Theoretical Cold Atom Physics (and QIP)
Dept. of Physics & Astronomy
University of Sussex

Ref 131, Deadline 18 February 2011.

A 5-year post-doc position is available for research funded by the EPSRC in the project "Devices based on Entanglement in Cold Arrays of Trapped Atoms". The project is led by Dr. Barry Garraway and located in the AMO research group at the University of Sussex.
