M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Open Quantum Systems & Thermodynamics
Jan. 1, 2022 , Technion, Israel

Fully funded Master/PhD positions are available at the Gelbwaser-Klimovsky group. Some of the questions we are exploring are: Are quantum and classical heat machines fundamentally different? Why do systems strongly interacting with their surroundings act as if they were completely decoupled? What are the thermodynamic properties of systems that break standard assumptions such as local detailed balance? For more information, visit or contact David

Postdoctoral Positions at the Center for Theoretical Physics of Complex Systems
Jan. 1, 2022 , Center for Theoretical Physics of Complex Systems, Institute for Basic Science

The research team “Quantum Chaos in Many-Body Systems”, led by Dario Rosa, is looking for postdoctoral fellows willing to join the group. This research activity will be in close collaboration with SPIN Institute of the Italian National Research Council (Dr. Matteo Carrega) and with Università degli studi dell'Insubria (Prof. Giuliano Benenti), in Italy. For all details we refer to the link

PhD studentship in Quantum Thermodynamics
Jan. 1, 2022 - Feb. 5, 2022 , Newcastle University, UK

This PhD studentship will theoretically design many-body quantum thermal devices operating in a finite-time using analytical and numerical many-body techniques. This will involve employing tools from condensed matter theory, nonequilibrium statistical physics, quantum information and quantum measurement to understand and enhance the machines performance.

PhD offer - Autonomous quantum machines (Theory)
Jan. 1, 2022 , New Quantum Thermodynamics group at Université de Lorraine, Nancy (France)

PhD position open at the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics and Chemistry, in Nancy (France) to work with Cyril Elouard (Junior Professor at Université de Lorraine). The PhD candidate will join a new theory group devoted to quantum thermodynamics to study autonomous quantum engines and quantum batteries, in collaboration with several experimental groups. Typical starting date would be Fall 2023. For more information and applications, please email

Postdoctoral Position in the Maryland Quantum Thermodynamics Hub
Jan. 1, 2022 - April 1, 2023 , UMBC

The Quantum Thermodynamics Group in the Department of Physics at UMBC invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work under the mentorship of Dr. Sebastian Deffner. This postdoctoral position is part of the newly founded Maryland Quantum Thermodynamics Hub, which is generously supported by the John Templeton Foundation.

3 years PhD fellowship on "Heat flows through qubits"
Nov. 1, 2021 , Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain)

Open for applications until 27/01/2022. Highly competitive process. More information on the project in the link:

Postdoc position on Quantum Thermodynamics of Topological Materials at University of Twente
Sept. 12, 2021 , University of Twente, the Netherlands

The research group of Prof. Inanc Adagideli at the University of Twente is looking to appoint a postdoctoral researcher starting as early as fall 2021. The successful candidate will be working on the theory of the interactions between nuclear spins and topological edge states from the point of view of quantum thermodynamics and quantum transport. For more information see

PhD position in the Theory of Controlled Quantum Systems
Sept. 1, 2021 , Trinity College Dublin

A PhD position has opened in the newly established Theory of Controlled Quantum Systems group at Trinity College Dublin (TCD), led by Mark Mitchison. The group’s research lies at the intersection of open quantum systems, non-equilibrium statistical physics, and quantum information. See the group website for more details and how to apply:
