Post-Doctoral Research Position in Open Quantum Systems and Quantum Thermodynamcs
May 31, 2021 - June 30, 2021 , University of Basel, Switzerland

The Quantum Thermodynamics Group at the University of Basel is looking for an open-minded, creative, enthusiastic, responsible, and ambitious person with an independent work style and the ability to work in different teams and build international networks.

PhD or Postdoc Position in Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics and Open Quantum Systems Theory
April 26, 2021 , Quantum Information Group at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

I am looking for either a PhD student or Postdoc to work with me on theoretical problems at the intersection of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and open quantum systems theory. The preferred starting date for PhDs is September 2021 or as soon as possible after that (the starting date for Postdocs would be more flexible). For more information, please see the link.

Theory postdoc "Local probes of dissipation"
April 1, 2021 , Strasbourg (France)

A two-year postdoc with Rodolfo Jalabert & Dietmar Weinmann (IPCMS, Strasbourg) in collaboration with Denis Basko & Rob Whitney (LPMMC, Grenoble). The candidate will theoretically explore how and where dissipation occurs in "non-local" quantum transport. He/she will use modelling of local probes of nanoscale systems to address fundamental questions of quantum thermodynamics. This is motivated by recent experimental breakthroughs in local probes. Start date: first-half of 2021.

The positions are available from April 2021 (with flexibility). More information can be found at our web page:

Postdoc position in Quantum Thermodynamics
April 1, 2021 , Univ. Insubria, Como, Italy

A postdoc position, funded by the Julian Schwinger Foundation (project "Ultimate bounds for quantum heat engines"), is available at Univ. Insubria, Como, Italy. The position will be for a duration of one year, with a possible yearly extension and can start as soon as possible. The successful candidate will be working on the application of optimal control and machine learning techniques in quantum thermodynamics. For further information, please contact

Postdoc in Theoretical Quantum Thermodynamics
Dec. 23, 2020 - Jan. 26, 2021 , Lund University, Sweden

We are looking for a postdoc working on stochastic and quantum thermodynamics. A central objective will be the derivation of a description of systems coupled to finite-sized reservoirs. The effect of fluctuating temperatures on heat-, as well as information-driven engines will be investigated.

Theory post-doc position in Grenoble:Energy-efficient quantum computing with solid-state spin qubits
Dec. 1, 2020 , Institut Néel, Grenoble

A 2 years post-doctoral position is available to work on the energetic aspects of quantum information processing with spin qubits. The research will be conducted in the theory group of Dr. A. Auffèves (Institut Néel, CNRS and University Grenoble Alpes) in close collaboration with the Grenoble Quantum Silicon group.
