Special Issue 'Experimental Studies of Mesocopic Thermodynamics' - Entropy
Oct. 1, 2019 - May 31, 2020 , Entropy

We invite submissions on a broad range of topics, including experimental studies of fluctuation relations, micro-engines, heat transport and information thermodynamics. Both theoretical and experimental studies of advanced techniques including bath engineering, statistical analysis of noisy systems, and physical analogues of noisy biological systems are very welcome. Finally, we invite proposals on realistic and novel methods to study the thermodynamics of quantum systems.

Quarantine Thermo Seminar Series
March 1, 2020 - Jan. 1, 2021 , Online

Dear all, My group in Dublin is hosting a series of international seminars (Quarantine Thermo) which are streamed live on YouTube live (with recordings for those who cannot make the live broadcast). So far the standard of talks has been excellent and well received by those who are participating. The news of the series has mainly been spread by social media and in case you are (understandably) avoiding it - here is link to the mail-list:

Lake Como School on "Thermodynamics of quantum systems and processes"
Aug. 31, 2020 - Sept. 4, 2020 , Como, Italy

The goal of this school is to provide a broad yet technical overview of the emerging field of thermodynamics of quantum systems and processes, with a series of lectures given by leading experts in the field. The school is mainly addressed to PhD students, advanced master students and postdocs, and aims to train a new generation of researchers in a field that, in light of its emerging character, sees a shortage of specialized scientists.

"Quantum thermoelectrics and heat currents at the nanoscale" minicoloquium at the CMD2020GEFES
Aug. 31, 2020 - Sept. 4, 2020 , Madrid, Spain

The minicoloquium is enclosed in the "CMD2020GEFES Condensed Matter in Madrid" conference combining the biennial meetings of the Condensed Matter Divisions of the EPS and of the RSEF. It will provide an excellent opportunity for bringing together theoreticians and experimentalists from different fields such as molecular electronics, quantum dots and metallic nanocontacts, all working under the common umbrella of thermal conductance and thermoelectricity. Abstract submission is open.

PhD position
Oct. 1, 2020 - April 1, 2024 , University of Exeter

We are looking for motivated students to work on the thermodynamics of strongly coupled open quantum systems and tweak the design of quantum-thermodynamic cooling cycles. This award provides annual funding to cover UK/EU/International tuition fees and a tax-free stipend. The studentship will be awarded on the basis of merit for 3.5 years of full-time study to commence in October 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. Earlier start dates can be discussed.

PhD position at Trinity College Dublin (QuSys Group)
Sept. 1, 2020 - Sept. 1, 2024 , Trinity College Dublin

A fully funded PhD position is available at Trinity College Dublin working with QuSys group lead by Prof. John Goold. Please click the link for details.

PhD student position in quantum matter and open quantum systems
April 27, 2020 - April 30, 2020 , University of Jyväskylä

We seek talented doctoral students to work in an inspiring environment, in one of the following theory projects linking condensed matter theory and open quantum systems - Interplay of superconductivity and magnetism out of equilibrium - Correlated electronic states in quantum matter - Optical response of quantum matter with non-trivial topology

Postdoc position in the theory of stochastic phenomena in driven superconductor/ferromagnet systems
April 27, 2020 - May 17, 2020 , University of Jyväskylä

We seek a postdoc to work on the theory of hybrid superconductor/ferromagnet structures driven out of equilibrium, in particular the stochastic magnetization dynamics affected by superconductivity, and the physics of SUPERTEDs, superconducting thermoelectric detectors.

Postdoctoral fellow in Nanoscale and Quantum Thermodynamic, theory
Feb. 24, 2020 - March 16, 2020 , Lund University

The research will be based on the project “Information-to-work conversion from classical to quantum – a nanoscale electronic demon in double quantum dots”, supported by the Foundational Questions Institute under the call “Information as Fuel”. The subject is theory for stochastic and quantum thermodynamics in nanoscale systems, with a focus on statistical properties of thermodynamical quantities such as work, heat and entropy production.
