2 Postdoc positions in quantum information available at National Quantum Information Centre of Gdansk, Sopot, Poland, within the NCN (National Science Centre) project.

Full time employment , 32 month employment contracts. The positions start  June 1, 2016.

We offer excellent environment and research in wide range of topics.


-  PhD in physics, math or computer science,       

-  experience in quantum information.

Description of tasks:

The candidates will work on new aspects of uncertainty (including majorization approach, as well as in the context of no-signaling theories), Bell-nonlocality, where we will consider in particular so called linear games, and thermodynamics in microregime.  The candidates are also  expected to supervise younger colleagues (PhD students) working in the project.

Deadline for submission: April 18, 2016

Additional information: To apply send your CV, reference letter and a short description of scientific interest in single pdf file to fizmh [at] ug [dot] edu [dot] pl until  April 18 . Please include “Application OPUS 9” in the subject of your message. Any inquiries should be directed to the same address.  (The deadline may be moved in case of too few applications)


Description of the project: Quantum information provides a common language, which can be  used to unify phenomena in different branches of physics. Most recent example is application of quantum information techniques to thermodynamics, that allowed to view thermodynamics as a resource theory. Quantum information allows provides also a new perspective for existing domains. A prominent example is here Bell non-locality: before quantum information era, Bell inequalities were of sole interest of scientists working in foundations of physics.  In the project we plan to explore this feature of quantum information to study thermodynamics, Bell non-locality/contextuality/steering, uncertainty principles, and representation theoretic problems inspired by quantum information.
