Special Issue "Energy, Entropy, and Information in Nano- and Quantum-Electronics"
March 10, 2021 - Aug. 25, 2021 , Entropy

The fields of stochastic and quantum thermodynamics generalize the theory of thermodynamics to a regime where fluctuations and measurements play a fundamental role. Powerful results have been established in these fields, including fluctuation theorems and thermodynamic uncertainty relations. This Special Issue aims at providing a focus on modern developments in these highly exciting topics related to energy, entropy, and information in nano- and quantum-electronics.

Special Issue "Open Quantum Systems”
March 25, 2021 - Sept. 30, 2021 , Entropy Journal

Dear colleagues, We are pleased to announce a Special Issue "Open Quantum Systems” in the Entropy journal (IF 2.494), fully open access. Submissions will be open until September 2021. For more information, please visit the website: We are looking forward to your contributions. Best wishes, The Guest Editors, David Zueco Aurelia Chenu

PhD positions in theoretical quantum thermodynamics, open quantum systems, and quantum control.
Oct. 1, 2021 , Bar-Ilan University (Tel Aviv district) Israel

Fully funded PhD positions are available with the Levy research group at Bar-Ilan University (Tel Aviv district), Israel ( The research interests of the group include theoretical research in the fields of quantum thermodynamics, quantum control, open quantum systems, and related fields. The starting date is October 2021 (with flexibility). More information can be found at our web page:

June 2, 2021 - June 30, 2021 , University of York, UK

The project will explore many-body effects in finite-time quantum thermodynamic processes including signatures of quantum phase transitions. Candidates should have experience in programming and a good background in many-body theory and quantum mechanics. This PhD is fully funded for UK nationals (or students who have acquired similar fee status) only. Interested candidates should contact: Irene D’Amico, University of York, UK,

Post-Doctoral Research Position in Open Quantum Systems and Quantum Thermodynamcs
May 31, 2021 - June 30, 2021 , University of Basel, Switzerland

The Quantum Thermodynamics Group at the University of Basel is looking for an open-minded, creative, enthusiastic, responsible, and ambitious person with an independent work style and the ability to work in different teams and build international networks.

PhD or Postdoc Position in Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics and Open Quantum Systems Theory
April 26, 2021 , Quantum Information Group at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

I am looking for either a PhD student or Postdoc to work with me on theoretical problems at the intersection of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and open quantum systems theory. The preferred starting date for PhDs is September 2021 or as soon as possible after that (the starting date for Postdocs would be more flexible). For more information, please see the link.

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.
