We are happy to announce the 3rd international conference for Young Quantum Information Scientists (YQIS) which will happen in Erlangen (Germany) from 3rd to 6th October 2017. The conference aims for providing a possibility for young researchers to present their cutting-edge research on the stage, to discuss extensively with other young researchers and to build strong ties to the quantum information community.

The Schmid College of Science and Technology at Chapman University is advertising teaching/research postdoctoral fellowships (see the advert below). The teaching portion is in our new Grand Challenges Initiative. The research component can be in any group within Schmid College, which includes the Institute for Quantum Studies. The institute is lef by Yakir Aharonov and Jeff Tollaksen, and includes faculty members Matt Leifer and Justin Dressel.

<h1> International Conference on Quantum Physics Of Nature, QUPON 2015: </h1>

In the week of 18-22 May 2015 we will celebrate cutting-edge research in quantum science and there are many good reasons for that:

- The UNESCO declared 2015 to be the "International Year of Light"
- The University of Vienna's 650th anniversary.
- The Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology's (VCQ) 5th anniversary

Weak Value and its measurement, Weak Measurement, have seen a surge of interest in recent years because of their possibility of impact on the very foundation of quantum mechanics and also of their relevance in precision measurement by the characteristic amplification mechanism. The aim of this workshop is to bring together some of the prominent world experts and internal leaders of the field to discuss the imminent issues that have surfaced recently.

The School of Physics of Astronomy at Tel-Aviv University invites applications for a post-doctoral position in Foundations of Quantum Mechanics. The research, led by professors Yakir Aharonov and Lev Vaidman, is focused on time and non-locality in quantum mechanics, with a special emphasis on entanglement, weak measurements and the Aharonov-Bohm Effect.
