Nice, 8-10 February 2017

The school will consist on a series of courses that aim to revise the fundamentals of quantum information, including cryptography, relating them to specific implementations in photonics with emphasis on the added value of reconfigurable devices. The Courses will also discuss the interfaces between different devices.

Applications are invited for a Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellowship in Quantum Computation (Theory) at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
In the first instance, please contact soon Dr. M. Mc Gettrick [michael.mcgettrick@nuigalway.ie] for initial discussions on the research programme.

Young Quantum-2017 (YouQu-2017)”, a collaborative meeting for young researchers on quantum information processing and its applications, will be organized at Harish-Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad, India during 27th February - 1st March, 2017. It will be for post-doctoral fellows and doctoral students. In this program, we wish to include discussions on recent developments in areas related to quantum information, quantum computation, and their interface with other sciences.

The quantum information science group led by Animesh Datta at the University of Warwick is seeking a PhD student to work on Mechanisms of quantum-enhanced excitonic energy transport. The student will be supported by scholarships awarded by the University of Warwick.

The goals of this theoretical project are first, to understand the mechanisms of excitonic energy transport at the quantum level in noisy systems, and second, to exploit the above understanding on the role of quantumness in noisy systems to advance quantum information science.
