Recent years are witnessing a renewed interest in thermodynamic applications at the nanoscale. Technological advances are leading to unprecedented levels of miniaturisation in the fabrication of microscopic engines capable of producing work. Recent experiments have produced engines built with only a few degrees of freedom, as for example a single electron transistor and the recently developed single ion engine. At the nanoscale, thermal fluctuations are quite strong and cannot be ignored any longer.

Quantum thermodynamics addresses the emergence of thermodynamic phenomena from quantum mechanics and aims to clarify to what extent the paradigms of thermodynamics apply in the quantum domain when quantum effects come into play, such as quantum correlations, quantum fluctuations, coherences, and entanglement. Quantum thermodynamics is closely linked with the theory of quantum measurement, as both require an open quantum systems approach.

We are looking for two professionals in the quantum optics or photonic sicences interested in developing nanophotonics and quantum systems to join our group efforts to explore quantum optics, integrated photonics and optical physics systems and their applications to information technologies.

Level: Ph.D.
Duration: 36 months.
Tuition Funding: Tec de Monterrey
Living Expenses Funding: CONACYT doctoral grant (~13,000 mxn per month, competitive in Mexico).
Requirements: GRE and TOEFL (or equivalent English proficiency test)

The Fermilab Scientific Computing Division (SCD) is seeking graduating PhDs in the fields of Physics and/or Quantum Computing for multiple postdoctoral positions in its newly-established Quantum Information Science (QIS) initiative. The Fermilab effort will emphasize quantum algorithm development and applications for high-energy physics, as well as co-design and planning for integrated applications with hybrid quantum/classical systems. Current areas of interest include quantum algorithms and implementations for machine learning and partial differential equations. These projects involve collaborations with other Department of Energy labs and academic institutions, as well as with industry. The candidates will also have the opportunity to work on related algorithm development and applications utilizing classical computing.
The appointment will be for three years with the possibility of renewal subject to continuation of the project funding and performance.
