Frontiers in Non-equilibrium Physics 2024
July 1, 2024 - Aug. 2, 2024 , Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University, Japan

We are organizing a long-term workshop focusing on non-equilibrium physics. The second and third weeks will be dedicated to topics related to stochastic and quantum thermodynamics. The fourth week will focus on active matter, non-reciprocal transitions, and the Mpemba effect. The fifth week will concentrate on the jamming and rheology of dense materials. We look forward to your participation!

Emergence of Classicality: New Perspectives on Measurements in Quantum Theory
July 15, 2024 - July 19, 2024 , Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

Abstract submission (posters & talks) is now open for our conference: Emergence of Classicality 2024. Submit here: We will discuss deep questions around quantum measurements, with talks on quantum information, paradoxes, closed system-environment interaction, and experimental quantum thermodynamics. Invited speakers: Časlav Brukner Nicole Yunger Halpern Lina Jansson Jarosław Korbicz V. Vilasini Howard Wiseman (and more!) See you in Dublin!

QTD2024: Quantum Thermodynamics Conference 2024
Aug. 5, 2024 - Aug. 9, 2024 , University of Maryland, College Park, USA (in person + hybrid)

We are pleased to announce that a north American team led by Luis Pedro García-Pintos at LANL, has agreed to organise QTD2024 at the University of Maryland. The dates are now fixed to 5-9 August 2024 (i.e. NOT in July). The event will be in person with a hybrid option. Please put the dates in your diary. The conference webpage is here: Look out for details of when/how to submit contributions, which will be posted here.

PhD position on quantum thermodynamics and quantum control
April 25, 2024 , Dijon, France

We are looking for a PhD student to work at the intersection between quantum thermodynamics and quantum control. Central questions will envolve trade-off between energetic costs and performances of quantum operations in terms of precision, velocity, and robustness, as well as the developpment of optimal quantum control protocols.

Doctoral student in theory for quantum thermodynamics in nanosystems
April 9, 2024 - April 30, 2024 , Physics department, Lund university, Sweden

The successful applicant will work broadly in theoretical quantum thermodynamics, with transport, fluctuations and correlations of energy and charge at the nanoscale, in open quantum systems. Measurement and control of such quantum systems is of particular interest. Cooperation with theoretical and experimental colleagues in the field is an important part of the position. The work will be performed in the research group led by Peter Samuelsson.

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Stochastic Thermodynamics with Levitated Particles
March 20, 2024 - April 22, 2024 , King's College London

We are looking for a theorist to join an experimental group studying stochastic thermodynamics with levitated microparticles - position duration 3-5 years. Contact

PhD position at Chalmers: Dynamics of spins and chiral phonons
March 11, 2024 - April 2, 2024 , Chalmers

We offer a four-year PhD position in the Geilhufe group at Chalmers. This opportunity is part of a research initiative on emergent magnetic phenomena due to the coupling of spin and laser-excited chiral phonons. The overarching goal is to derive coupling mechanisms between phonons and spin, e.g., based on inertial effects and estimate their strengths and impact in realistic setups. This information is crucial for understanding the complex phase diagram of materials outside of equilibrium.

Postdoc position at Chalmers: Ultrafast Thermodynamics
March 11, 2024 - April 8, 2024 , Chalmers, Gothenburg, Sweden

We offer a 2+1-year PostDoc position in the Geilhufe group at Chalmers. This opportunity is part of a research initiative centered on investigating thermodynamic properties in laser-excited materials. The overarching goal is to study the entropy and heat production associated with material excitations (such as phonons and magnons) in the presence of thermal and quantum noise. The goal is to use this information for understanding the complex phase diagram of materials outside of equilibrium.
