Quantum Energy Initiative
Aug. 31, 2022 - Aug. 30, 2023 , online

Quantum technologies exploit quantum features to design machines more efficient than their classical counterparts. While the focus so far has been on their brute performance, the quantum energy initiative (QEI) aims to develop a systemic approach to keep in check their physical resource cost. This mandates new synergies between fundamental research, quantum and enabling technologies within a new international and interdisciplinary network. Please visit our website to know more!

Special Issue: New Trends on Quantum Batteries and Energetics in the Quantum Regime
Sept. 16, 2022 - March 31, 2023 , Entropy Journal

Dear colleagues, We write you to announce the Special Issue "New Trends on Quantum Batteries and Energetics in the Quantum Regime" on the journal Entropy ( In case you are interested in contributing feel free to contact us. With best regards, Alba Crescente ( Dario Ferraro (

Quantum resources: from mathematical foundations to operational characterisation
Dec. 5, 2022 - Dec. 8, 2022 , Singapore

The workshop is concerned with the theoretical investigation of quantum resources, and in particular on bridging the gap between the abstract mathematical description of resource theories and the protocols for their practical exploitation. It will consist of invited talks by experts in various aspects of quantum resource theories as well as contributed talks, poster sessions, and extended discussion sessions. Abstract submission deadline: 31 August 2022

(Post)Modern Thermodynamics
Dec. 5, 2022 - Dec. 9, 2022 , Luxembourg

School + Workshop (in person)

Post-doc position at the University of Rochester in the group of Gabriel Landi
Jan. 1, 2023 , University of Rochester, New York

The Quantum Thermodynamics & Quantum Transport (QT2) group of Professor Landi, in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Rochester, seeks applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on the theory of quantum thermodynamics, open quantum systems and quantum information. We are looking for a creative, self-motivated researcher to pursue exciting problems related to the role of coherence and fluctuations in thermodynamic processes.

Quantum Thermodynamics Theory PhD position
June 10, 2022 - July 25, 2022 , Potsdam University, Germany

A 3-year-funded PhD position to work on topics in quantum thermodynamics theory is available in the group of Janet Anders at the University of Potsdam. Start: October 2022 Further details: (takes a moment to load) If you are thinking of doing a PhD, and this topic is of interest to you, please contact: by 10 July 2022, or as soon as possible after that.

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
