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.

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.

Theory post-doc position in Grenoble:Quantum thermodynamics with nano-electro-mechanical devices
Dec. 1, 2020 , Institut Néel, Grenoble

A 2 years post-doctoral position is available to work on the theory of quantum information thermodynamics with spin and charge qubits in suspended Carbon Nanotubes (CNT). 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 experimental group of Dr. N. Ares (Oxford). The position is part of the “Nanomechanics in the solid-state for Quantum information thermodynamics” project (NanoQit, 2020-2024)

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.
