Singapore/Oxford quantum nanoscience postdoc:
ADVERT: Two postdocs in Quantum Nanoscience Theory: Fundamental physics and high-level structures.
The two postdoctoral researchers in the theory of quantum information and technologies will be appointed to work jointly in Singapore and in Oxford, UK. The researchers will be employed by the Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT) in Singapore, but will spend up to 10 months each year working in the University of Oxford. The appointments are for 3 years, and form part of a larger initiative on quantum nanoscience. The annual salary is up to $86,000 Singapore dollars (approx. $63,800) plus housing benefits. Each individual will be supervised by two of the following researchers: Simon Benjamin, Bob Coecke, Dieter Jaksch, Vlatko Vedral. The posts are available immediately and will be advertised until they are filled. It is hoped that the appointees will be in post on or before the 4th Jan 2011.

Are you good at quantum information theory? BBN:
Title: Quantum Optical Information Theorist
Department: Disruptive Information Processing Technologies
Location: Cambridge MA
Raytheon BBN Technologies’ Disruptive Information Processing Technologies Business Unit, located in Cambridge, MA, is seeking a qualified theorist with a strong background in quantum optics and information theory. The ideal candidate should have a good working knowledge of Fourier optics, optical imaging, stochastic processes, estimation theory, digital communications and coding theory, and be familiar with quantum measurement theory. The candidate will join a highly entrepreneurial group of researchers advancing optical communications and imaging technologies by pursuing an in-depth study of the fundamental limits on the information carrying capacity of light waves. The candidate will work with experts in quantum information theory in leading efforts in developing a deep understanding of designing quantum-limited optical communications and imaging systems, and will also provide strong theory support to diverse new and existing efforts on quantum, atomic, superconducting and optical phenomena. Position responsibilities will include building and developing novel information theoretical understanding of quantum optical systems, as well as working closely with experimentalists to perform modeling and simulation of advanced concepts in a system environment.
And Howard sends a note for a conference in Florida in April with an abstract due date of Oct. 2010:
I encourage you and your students and/or associates to participate in the conference QUANTUM INFORMATION AND COMPUTATION IX (DS216) to be held during the SPIE International Symposium on Defense, Security and Sensing, 25-29 April 2011 in Orlando, Florida, USA.
