Quantum mechanics has been a constant source of innovation for over a century, and is now opening the door to a new age of information technologies. Identifying the key quantum structures and developing new concepts and methods can accelerate the progress, facilitating the development of new information-processing protocols and the discovery of new connections with other areas of physics.

General Information

The Institute for Quantum Studies within Schmid College of Science and Technology at Chapman University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Foundations of Quantum Theory, beginning August 2018.

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
