The Department of Physics and the Department of Computer Science in the Faculty of Arts & Science at the University of Toronto invite applications for a full-time tenure stream position in the area of Quantum Information. The successful candidate will be jointly appointed in the Department of Physics (51%) and the Department of Computer Science (49%) at the rank of Assistant Professor. The appointment will commence on July 1, 2020, or shortly thereafter.

The Centre for Quantum Information and Quantum Control at the University of Toronto invites applications from outstanding candidates for its Prize Post-Doctoral Fellowship. The program provides funding for the very best postdoctoral applicants, both nationally and internationally, who will positively contribute to University of Toronto’s program in quantum science and technology.

The PhD project is in the domain of many-body physics with highly excited Rydberg atoms. The position is funded via the DFG priority programme GiRyd (http://giryd.de/en/) through the grant "Non-equilibrium phenomena in Rydberg lattice gases with facilitation constraints".

A PhD position is available immediately to work at the Quantum Technology Group at Queen’s University belfast on non-equilibrium quantum thermodynamics enhanced by machine learning. The position will be funded by the Royal Society Wolfson Research Fellowship recently awarded to Prof Mauro Paternostro.

Applications through the portal available from


will be accepted until 13 December 2020.
