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.

Postdoctoral position on COMPLEX QUANTUM SYSTEMS at IFISC
Feb. 1, 2024 - Feb. 28, 2024 , Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems (IFISC), Mallorca, Spain

We offer a 2-years contract starting by fall 2024 (aprox.) associated to the project “CoCuSy” lead by PIs Prof. Roberta Zambrini, Dr. Gian-Luca Giorgi and Dr. Gonzalo Manzano. Project topics are (to focus preferably in two): Open Quantum Systems, Quantum Thermodynamics, Quantum Neural Networks, Quantum Reservoir Computing. Previous experience on the topics, scientific independence and ability to work in group will be valuable. See full announcement for application instructions.

PhD and Postdoc positions at the University of Helsinki
Jan. 26, 2024 - Feb. 14, 2024 , University of Helsinki

We offer 1 PhD (4 years) and 1 Postdoc (1 year + renewable up to 4) position at the University of Helsinki in the Helteq group led by Prof. Sabrina Maniscalco, starting in early 2024. The successful candidates will work on one (or more) of the following research topics in open quantum systems and thermodynamics: quantum thermalization; intersection between open quantum systems and thermodynamics; mathematical description of Lindblad master equations and their symmetries.

Postdoc Position in Open Quantum Systems
Jan. 19, 2024 - Feb. 5, 2024 , Quantum Thermodynamics Group, University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland

Join the Quantum Thermodynamics Group led by Patrick Potts as a Post-Doctoral Researcher, contributing to cutting-edge research in out-of-equilibrium open quantum systems. Explore exciting areas such as quantum measurement and control, quantum optics, thermodynamics of information, and quantum sensing. Bring your innovative ideas to our collaborative team.

PhD position on the resource cost of quantum computing
Jan. 1, 2024 - Dec. 31, 2027 , MajuLab, Centre for Quantum Technologies, Singapore

A 4-year PhD position is available, on the resource cost of quantum computing, focused on full-stack aspects and fundamental hardware considerations. The successful candidate will be enrolled in the CQT PhD programme. The project is part of the ANR-NRF “QuRes” project and will be co-supervised by Associate Prof. Hui Khoon Ng (Yale-NUS, MajuLab, CQT) and Dr. Alexia Auffèves (CNRS, MajuLab, CQT). It contributes to the international effort of the recently launched Quantum Energy Initiative.

Job offer: Research fellow in the theory of Photonic Quantum Gates based on Collision Model approach
Jan. 1, 2024 - Dec. 31, 2024 , MajuLab, Centre for Quantum Technologies, Singapore

We are searching for a talented post-doctoral fellow to model the dynamics and thermodynamics of quantum light pulses interacting with non-linearities close to the quantum regime induced by a Kerr optical cavity. The candidate will build a complete framework to model light-matter interaction in a fully Hamiltonian way. She/he will be hosted in the |Quantum Energy Team>, in the group of A. Auffeves@MajuLab, CQT, Singapore. Strong interactions with top-level experimental groups to expect!
