Entropy Special Issue: Energy, Entropy and Information in Nano- and Quantum-Electronics
June 20, 2019 - March 31, 2020 , Entropy

Due to their high degree of control, small electronic systems provide ideal candidates to investigate thermodynamics on the nanoscale. In particular, all ingredients required to investigate heat and energy transport, as well as the thermodynamics of information, are available. This Special Issue aims at providing a focus on modern developments in the highly exciting topics related to energy, entropy, and information in nano- and quantum-electronics.

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.

Anonymous survey about gender equality
Jan. 1, 2020 - Feb. 28, 2020 , Everywhere!

Dear colleagues from the Quantum Thermo community, Please find below the link to a survey made by the Gender Equality working group of the Quantum Flagship to gather information and comments about gender equality. It is ANONYMOUS, it takes 5 minutes to answer. The more data we collect, the most adequate changes we will be able to propose! We thank you in advance for participating, it is very important!

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.

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.

Research Assosciate in Theoretical Chemistry/Physics
Feb. 1, 2020 - March 31, 2020 , University of Manchester

An ERC-funded Research Associate position is available to undertake research in the field of open quantum systems, molecular magnetism and vibronic coupling. This position is part of the “ContraVib: Chemical Control of Vibronic Coupling for Magnetic Materials” project, that seeks to use high quality physical measurements and state-of-the-art theoretical techniques to develop guidelines for the chemical control of vibronic coupling.

PhD positions in Quantum Resources Group
Jan. 1, 2020 - June 30, 2023 , Jagiellonian University, Kraków, Poland

Looking for 2 PhD students to work in the newly established Quantum Resources Group. The broad aim of the group is to develop a theoretical framework underpinning quantum technologies, with a particular focus on quantum computing and quantum thermodynamics. The specific research directions that the group will pursue are described in the Research Agenda available here:
