Postdoctoral position
Jan. 17, 2019 , Nanophysics Center, School of Science and Engineering, Reykjavik University

A postdoctoral position, for 3 years, is available at Reykjavik University, on thermoelectric and heat transport in semiconductor core/shell nanowires, using theoretical and computational methods. The project will include modelling of the thermoelectric properties of arrays of Silicon nanowires fabricated by our group. Contact Andrei Manolescu or Sigurdur Ingi Erlingsson

Quantum thermodynamics in cavity QED
Jan. 1, 2019 , Laboratoire Kastler Brossel, Collège de France

A post-doctoral position is available to develop and conduct experiments on quantum thermodynamics in a microwave cavity QED system with Rydberg atoms and high-Q superconducting cavities at Laboratoire Kastler Brossel (Dr. I. Dotsenko, Pr. M. Brune). The proposed research is included in the ANR project “QuDICE”, in collaboration with a theoretical group at Neel Institute (Dr. A. Auffèves, Grenoble, France) and an experimental group in the C2N laboratory (Dr. P. Senellart, Palaiseau, France).

Postdoc in topological optomechanics
Jan. 1, 2019 , University of Malta

The quantum group in Malta is looking to recruit an experienced postdoctoral researcher in the field of topological optomechanical devices. This project aims to investigate optomechanical arrays as a platform for the amplification, processing, and routing of phonons. It will feature close collaboration with Dr Vittorio Peano (Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, Erlangen). Please contact André Xuereb <> for more information.

PhD Position at Institut Néel, Grenoble, France
Jan. 1, 2019 , Grenoble, France

The PhD project is part of the ITN “QUDOT-TECH” (, that aims to construct a platform for integrated on-chip quantum information processing including Quantum Dots-based single-photon sources, waveguides, nonlinearities and detectors implemented on a chip. QUDOT-TECH gathers leading European academic and industrial partners. The student will benefit from the strong consortium and of the vibrant environment of Grenoble for quantum technologies. Start date: 01/06/19

Faculty positions (Lecturer/Senior Lecturer)
Dec. 29, 2018 - Jan. 31, 2019 , Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Exeter

Two Lecturer/Senior Lecturer positions in theoretical or experimental Physics. Positions are limited to 5 years in the first instance. Similar previous appointees who have obtained significant grant income have become permanent in the same department. Note that also 'permanent' positions in the UK usually have a probationary period of 3-5 years with similar expectations. Seeking to recruit internationally recognised early-career physicists to join the department.

Postdoc positions at IFISC in Mallorca (2019-20)
Dec. 14, 2018 - Jan. 15, 2019 , Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Postdoctoral positions at IFISC (UIB-CSIC), Mallorca, Spain (1) One position associated to the project EpheQuCS (EMERGENT PHENOMENA AND DECOHERENCE IN QUANTUM COMPLEX SYSTEMS), lead by Roberta Zambrini. (2) Several 1+1 year open positions María de Maeztu junior Post-Docs

PhD position on "Mesoscopic Quantum Thermal Machines"
Dec. 1, 2018 , University of Geneva

A fully funded PhD position is available to work at the University of Geneva under the joint supervision of Dr. Géraldine Haack and Prof. Nicolas Brunner. The project will focus on investigating non-conventional dynamics of open quantum systems (strong coupling, non-Markovian effects) in the context of quantum thermal machines. It aims at establishing strong connections between quantum transport theory, quantum information and quantum thermodynamics.

Postdoc position in the Quantum Non-Equilibrium Group, University of Exeter, UK
Dec. 1, 2018 - Dec. 13, 2018 ,

deadline: 12 December This is a long-term postdoc position for up to 4 years to work on a project in quantum/nanoscale thermodynamics theory. The applicant is expected to have expert knowledge in at least one of the following areas: quantum thermodynamics, open quantum systems theory, computational modelling of spin dynamics, stochastic thermodynamics, statistical physics and quantum information theory. Start mid-Jan 2019 or later start possible - to be discussed at interview.

PhD position in quantum thermodynamics at Trinity College Dublin
Nov. 29, 2018 - Jan. 15, 2019 , Trinity College Dublin

A fully funded PhD position for EU citizens is offered for a project on “SpeedDemon: Quantum speed limits in thermodynamic processes and coherent control” in the School of Physics, Trinity College Dublin. The work will be supervised by Dr. Steve Campbell through a Starting Investigator Research Grant from Science Foundation Ireland. Complete information available at:

Research Associate in Experimental Nanophysics
Nov. 12, 2018 - Jan. 5, 2019 , King's College London

The Levitated Nanophysics group at King’s College London is a new research team investigating the boundary between quantum physics and nanotechnology. We offer a 2 year ERC funded postdoctoral position for an experimental scientist. In this role, you will shape the new field of rotational optomechanics, with opportunities to develop technology as well as explore fundamental physics.
