Openness as a resource: Accessing new quantum states with dissipation
Jan. 31, 2022 - Feb. 4, 2022 , Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems , Dresden

Openness allows for mechanisms such as spontaneous relaxation and depolarization to disturb the dynamics of quantum systems and interfere with their, otherwise unitary, evolution. Yet openness is not exclusively a nuisance, it can also be used as a resource: Dissipative mechanisms can be employed to fight decoherence and thus stabilize quantum states which otherwise do not survive in the asymptotic limit. Alike, those can be utilized to convert heat stemming from a dissipative environment int

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:

July 28, 2021 , Ecole Normale Supérieure of Lyon, France

We are looking for a candidate with experience in either quantum measurement theory, quantum heat engines, quantum stochastic thermodynamics OR quantum open system theory, to work on projects at the interface of thermodynamics and quantum measurement, starting in Fall 2021, as part of the ANR project QSTEAM. Interested candidates are encouraged to send a CV at .
