School on "Thermodynamics of Quantum Systems and Processes"
March 22, 2021 - March 26, 2021 , Online School

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.

Workshop on Stochastic Thermodynamics II -- May 17-May 21, 2021; Tutorials May 13, 2021
May 17, 2021 - May 21, 2021 , Online at Santa Fe Institute

We cordially invite you to attend the second annual Workshop on Stochastic Thermodynamics (WOST II) hosted by the Santa Fe Institute, May 17 - May 21, 2021, with a day of tutorials on May 13. It will be held entirely online and will be free to attend for everyone. To allow junior researchers to present their work, the workshop will include a series of 10 minute lightning talks.

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.

Postdoctoral fellow in Quantum Thermodynamics @ Queen's University Belfast
Jan. 1, 2021 , Queen's University Belfast -- Quantum Technology group at Queen's

The Quantum Technology group at Queen's (QTeQ, seeks to appoint a postdoctoral research fellow to undertake theoretical research in non-equilibrium thermodynamics of quantum processes. The two-year post, funded by EPSRC, is available from or around 1 January 2021. For further information, please contact Mauro Paternostro at Details available from the QTeQ website.

Postdoctoral fellow at Queen's University Belfast
Jan. 1, 2021 , Queen's University Belfast -- Quantum Technology group at Queen's

The Quantum Technology group at Queen's (QTeQ, seeks to appoint a Postdoctoral fellow from or around 1 January 2020 for 1 year, to work on the exploration of the limits of validity of the quantum superposition principle. The position is within the FET project TEQ ( The interested candidate should contact Mauro Paternostro at for further details. Additional information from the QTeQ website above.

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. The position is part of the “Quantum computing - Large Scale Integration” project (QLSI, 2020-2024) funded by the FET-Flagship on Quantum Technologies.
