More than 30 positions will be opened soon at a new institute funded by Foundation of Polish Science to be launched at University Gdansk (Poland) in 2018: International Centre for Theory of Quantum Technologies (ICTQT).
The founders are Marek Zukowski, as the director, and Pawel Horodecki, as co-applicant. The Centre’s official foreign partner is IQOQI Vienna of Austrian Academy of Sciences. A series of official calls related with position openings will be announced in second half of 2018. However, we encourage talented and motivated scientists to send informal pre-applications. Those who will pre-apply, will receive the official position announcements directly via e-mail.
Positions will include:
4 (four) group leaders (gross ca USD 62000-80000/yr., at the current exchange rate)
6 (six) Senior postdocsnior researchers (gross ca USD 42 000 – 60 000/yr.)
12 (twelve) Young postdocs (gross ca USD 33 000-44 000 USD/yr. )
9 (nine) PhD students (ca USD 12500 USD/yr., no tax)
several negotiable diploma student positions. The salaries are to be paid in PLN, therefore the dollar values may fluctuate. Poland is a country of low cost of living, therefore the purchasing power of the salaries is much higher than its nominal dollar value.
The Centre aims to work on a broad scope of topics, including:
Quantum resources (entanglement, Bell Theorem, etc.)
Quantum open systems (decoherence, thermodynamics in microregime)
Quantum many-body systems
ICTQT plans interactions with business environment. We therefore also encourage candidates who are interested in matching science and business.
At the pre-application stage, please send us information that you might be interested in running for a position (to: firstname.lastname@example.org).
