Posdoctoral Positions on Quantum Information and Condensed Matter Theory

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

There are posdocs opportunities at the Quantum Information group of the Federal Fluminense University (http://infoptics.if.uff.br/doku.php?id=startpage), in NiterĂ³i, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The positions are to work at the interface between condensed matter and quantum information theory, under joint supervision of Prof. Thiago de Oliveira (tro@if.uff.br) and Prof. Marcelo Sarandy (msarandy@if.uff.br). Candidates with other backgrounds are also welcome to apply and interaction with other members of the group is also possible.

The group is part of the Brazilian National Institute for Science and Technology of Quantum Information (INCT-IQ). The fellowship is for a period of 3 years and includes a net monthly income of R$ 3,300.00 as well as a reasonable amount of funds for travel and for inviting collaborators.

NiterĂ³i is a city just across the Guanabara Bay from Rio de Janeiro. It is sixth most populous city in the state and the highest Human Development Index (for information about the city, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niter%C3%B3i ). We observe that Brazil is currently offering a number of opportunities for permanent positions and this may be a good start.

Interested candidates should provide a CV with a list of publications and a brief statement of research interests. Applications should be sent either to tro@if.uff.br or msarandy@if.uff.br by December 1, 2011, but late applications may be considered until positions are filled.
