Postdoctoral Fellowship available in Theoretical Quantum Physics

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Quantum Physics in the group of the Director, David Hutchinson. The position will be based in the Department of Physics, University of Otago, Dunedin. The group’s theoretical research covers areas from ultracold atomic gases, especially two-dimensional systems, through to using techniques for open quantum systems to model exciton transport in photosynthetic complexes.


Professorship (W3) of Experimental Particle Physics

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) combines its three core tasks: research, higher education, and innovation within one mission. With about 9,400 employees and 25,000 students, KIT is one of the big institutions of research and higher education in natural sciences and engineering in Europe.

In Division V – Physics and Mathematics – the KIT Department of Physics invites applications for a
Professorship (W3) of Experimental Particle Physics

at the Institute of Experimental Nuclear Physics (IEKP). We are looking for outstanding candidates with a research focus on precision measurements at electron-positron colliders, especially on B physics, and on the development of software algorithms and detectors. The successful candidate is expected to strengthen and expand the existing and planned collaborative research efforts in the Belle II experiment in Tsukuba Japan, and for a future linear collider detector.


Winter College on Optics 2017

The College will address fundamental and experimental aspects of advanced Microscopy, Spectroscopy and related techniques. The scope of the course is to promote new theoretical and experimental methods, concepts, instruments, measurement techniques and data analysis routines for both Laboratory and industrial applications to train students and scientists, as well as to coordinate international activities and collaborations in this area. By focusing on both theory and applications, the College will also provide an interesting intersection of emerging techniques and experimental methods with theoretical advances in the field. The lectures will focus on a variety of topics related to biological applications, environmental research and material characterization. Hands-on sessions will be organized every day of the college in the ICTP laboratories accompanied by library documentation finalized with round-table discussion.

Científicos Españoles ante el reto de las relaciones entre Reino Unido y España

La Sociedad de Científicos Españoles en Reino Unido, SRUK/CERU (Spanish Researchers in the United Kingdom/ Científicos Españoles en Reino Unido) han celebrado su IV Simposio Internacional para presentar las nuevas contribuciones de sus miembros a la ciencia y tecnología en unas jornadas interdisciplinares que han tenido lugar en Londres, en la University College of London. Además, también han aprovechado para debatir sobre el estado actual de la ciencia española en el Reino Unido tras el Brexit y en el contexto actual internacional.


Engineer and Scientist opportunities: The Advanced Light Source (ALS)

Senior and Junior Researchers, Postdoctoral research assistants, PhD students, Engineers, Physicists and Technicians

Extreme Light Infrastructure – Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) will be a new Center for Scientific Research to be built by the National Institute of Physics and Nuclear Engineering (IFIN-HH) in Bucharest-Magurele, Romania.

ELI-NP is a complex facility which will host two state-of-the-art machines of high performances:

A very high intensity laser with two 10 PW lasers;
A very intense, brilliant ã beam, very low bandwidth, with E ã until 19MeV, which is obtained by incoherent Compton back scattering of a laser light off an intense electron beam (Ee> 700 MeV) produced by a warm LINAC.

IFIN-HH – ELI-NP is organizing competitions for filling the folowing positions: Senior and Junior Researchers, Postdoctoral research assistants, PhD students, Engineers/Physicists (particle accelerators, mechanics, optics), Engineers (physics, laser, electronic, electrical, electrotechnical, instrumentation and control) and Technicians.

Nanofuente cuántica

Un equipo del CNRS en Francia con la participación de científicos de España y Argentina ha logrado crear una nanofuente que mana fotones individuales de una forma muy eficiente y que, además, son indistinguibles al 99,5% unos de otros. El estudio se ha publicado en Nature Photonics.

Nuestro dispositivo consiste en un punto cuántico,

formado por un material semiconductor de unos cuantos nanómetros, en medio de una cavidad óptica con forma de pilar, de unas tres micras, explica Daniel Lanzillotti, investigador argentino del CNRS. La mayor aportación de nuestro dispositivo es el número de fotones únicos y casi indistinguibles que puede emitir por segundo (alrededor de 13 millones), lo que supone 20 veces más que lo que aportan las fuentes de SPCD (Spontaneous Parametric Down-Conversion) que se usan actualmente, destaca el científico español Carlos Antón, estudiante postdoc. Estas nanofuentes de fotones únicos se pueden implementar directamente

en experimentos de computación óptica- cuántica. Además, sus posibles aplicaciones se extienden a la información cuántica, la criptografía, el

desarrollo de detectores ultrasensibles e incluso en supercomputación de sistemas biológicos.
