Doctoral Programme in the Physics and Mathematics of Information, Instituto Superior Tecnico, Lisbon, Portugal

We are happy to announce the opening of the call for applications to the new edition of the Doctoral Programme in the Physics and Mathematics of Information: Foundations of Future Information Technologies (DP-PMI), starting in September 2017.

The DP-PMI aims at providing advanced curricular and research training in the recent developments and fundamental challenges in information sciences and technologies, namely in:

  1. Classical and Quantum Information Theory;
  2. Classical and Quantum Logic, Computation and Machine Learning;
  3. Classical and Quantum Information Security and Communications;
  4. Nanoenergetics and Quantum Thermodynamics;
  5. Ultimate limits to precision measurements and navigation.

The DP-PMI is hosted by Instituto Superior Tecnico (IST), the School of Science and Engineering of the University of Lisbon, in Portugal, and seven associated research centres.

The programme is funded mainly by a 2.2 MEuro grant from the Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT). The DP-PMI started in January 2014 and currently has 27 students (20 male + 7 female) from 11 different nationalities. The programme will recruit up to 13 students in this call, and overall will train 40 doctoral students by 2021.

The Doctoral Programme in the Physics and Mathematics of Information aims at recruiting top-level students at the global scale, and train them in a multidisciplinary and international setting. The applications for the DP-PMI are very competitive, with an average success rate of around 15%.

The applications for the new edition of the DP-PMI are open until 30 April 2017.

PhD position in the theory of quantum networks

Many theoretical challenges need to be solved in order to implement the first quantum networks. In this PhD position, you will have the opportunity to solve some of these practical challenges. You will join the theory group of David Elkouss in QuTech at TU Delft and will work in close collaboration with the experimental groups of Ronald Hanson and Tim Taminiau and with the theory group of Stephanie Wehner.

The deadline is May the 1st but applications will be considered until the position is filled.

Ph.D. Position in Quantum Communications, University of Vigo, Spain

A fully-funded PhD student scholarship is available to work at the University of Vigo, Spain. The student should have a strong background and interest in applied mathematics and physics. The goal is to investigate quantum cryptographic protocols beyond quantum key distribution and to evaluate their feasibility, security and performance with current technology. More information can be found at: https://euraxess.ec.europa.eu/jobs/163993

For full consideration, please write to mcurty@com.uvigo.es until May 10, 2017 with a detailed academic CV, academic transcripts, and the names and email addresses of three potential referees.


Faculty Positions

Faculty Positions, University of Science and Technology (USTC) of China, Hefei

The School of Computer Science and Technology at USTC is seeking candidates for about ten faculty positions in all levels (full professor, associate professor, assistant professor, research assistant professor or distinguished visiting professor) for next academic year and twenty to thirty more faculties in the next 3 to 4 years. We welcome applicants from all areas of computer science, but will give preference to candidates with a particular interest in theory, computer architecture, systems, data science, machine learning, robotics, or inter-disciplinary areas. Candidates for the senior position are expected to be prominent researchers in the field of computer science, defined broadly, with a strong publication record, and are expected to build and lead a strong research group. The salary will be competitive compared with the salary in US or Europe. The appointment can be effective as early as July 1, 2017.

Candidates are also welcome to apply several titles in China, such as Thousand Talents Program (including full-time, short-term, young and foreign experts), Cheung Kong Scholars Program (full-time, and short-term visiting position), Hundred Talents Program by Chinese Academy of Sciences. Candidates who received any title will get extra support from both the China central government and the university.

Founded in 2008, the School of Computer Science and Technology has vibrant interdisciplinary research and educational components that include data science and analytics, networking science and technology, cyber-physical systems, robotics, computer graphics, computer architecture, high performance computing, human-computer interaction, cyber economics, and more. The school is currently home to more than 60 faculty members, and home to several vibrant research labs. At present, the school is in a stage of significant expansion. Extra resources have been allocated for both education and research. New campus hosting the school and a few other schools will be built in a year or two. The school will have a new building with a total space around 60,000 square meters. The school is committed to build an excellent, diverse, and inclusive research platform, and aims to offer an attractive remuneration under the same conditions among domestic C9 universities (the best universities in China). University of Science and Technology of China is also home to two national labs in China, the quantum computing and quantum communication labs, the world leading research program in these areas.

Any candidates who may be interested in these positions should contact our secretary, Mr. Shibao Pei, at psb@ustc.edu.cn. His phone numbers are +86-551-63601553 (office), 13865963412 (cell).

Those interested candidates should submit an application package including, a cover letter, a resume/CV, research statement, at least three reference letters (or the names and contact information of at least three references), and 2 sample publications. Electronic applications are highly preferred and please submit dossier at the following website: http://202.38.64.105/zp/submit.aspx. Alternatively, please mail the application materials to:
