Researchers at the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a technique that could make quantum cryptography significantly cheaper to implement, moving it nearer to possible commercial acceptance.
This post, funded by the UK's EPSRC, is required to develop coherent states as a resource in quantum technology. The successful candidate will spend two years at Queen's University Belfast, working with Professor Myungshik Kim on a joint project with Professor Sir Peter Knight at Imperial College and Professor Sougato Bose at University College London.
The Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Calgary invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Theoretical Quantum Optics at the assistant or associate professor level to start January 2009. All applicants must have a PhD in Physics or equivalent, postdoctoral experience in theoretical quantum optics, demonstrated excellence in teaching, and a strong record of research achievements in quantum optics, especially in the nexus between quantum optics and quantum information science.
Required by September 1st 2008 or as soon as possible thereafter to undertake research in Quantum Information Theory within the Centre for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics at Queen's University Belfast and to contribute to teaching in the Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics teaching division.
Applicants should clearly state if they wish to be considered for the Reader post, the Lecturer post, or both.
