Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the University of Nottingham, UK. The Ultracold Atoms Group is the youngest group in the School of Physics and Astronomy. It is part of the Midlands Ultracold Atom Research Centre (MUARC), formed together with the Cold Atoms Group at The University of Birmingham. We started our work in 2008 and now have several laboratory setups with ultra-cold atomic gases.
When the particles that make up a material are strongly-correlated, we theorists get a run for our money: qualitatively new behaviour emerges and the whole is a lot more than the sum of its parts. The theoretical description of matter in such challenging circumstances benefits from very close interaction with experimentalists. For this reason the University of Kent has set up, as part of the SEPnet collaboration, a small outpost of theorists at the ISIS Facility in the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
WOMEN IN SCIENCE: This is your chance to get a two-years PostDoctoral Fellowship (with flexible conditions, research expenses and support for childcare) to join the dynamic and young Quantum Stochastics & Information group at the University of Nottingham (Dr G. Adesso, Dr I. Fuentes, Dr M. Guta).

Three two-year postdoctoral research associate positions are available immediately in the group of Barry Sanders, who is the iCORE Chair of Quantum Information Science and Director of the University of Calgary's Institute for Quantum Information Science (IQIS). Research foci are machine learning for quantum measurement, multi-partite quantum communication protocols, quantum simulation, electron transport in protein complexes, and theoretical support for the the experimental research groups of Drs Barclay, Lvovsky, and Tittel in IQIS.
