“O que uma disputa entre Einstein e Bohr pode ensinar à era da pós-verdade”, Fernando de Melo (Folha de SP, 1/9/2018) — quantum Rio

Hoje foi publicado na Folha de São Paulo um belo texto do Fernando de Melo (CBPF), descrevendo a gênese da mecânica quântica como exemplo da importância do debate baseado em fatos, em contraposição à era atual dos “fake news” e pós-verdade. Confiram aqui!

Permanent position in quantum information at IFUSP – deadline 24/09

The Institute of Physics, University of São Paulo is inviting applications for a permanent  faculty  position in the field of Quantum Information. This includes quantum computation, quantum communication, quantum metrology, and their correspondent physical implementations, as well as the possible relations of Quantum Information Science with fundamental physics through areas such as holography and topological materials. The Physics Institute intends to boost its presence in Quantum Information Science and this position is a first step in that direction. The applications are open until September 24.

For more information contact Gabriel T. Landi at gtlandi@if.usp.br or Gustavo Burdman at burdman@fma.if.usp.br

The University of Sao Paulo (USP) is among the top research institutions in Latin America, and the Physics Institute is a dynamic, multi-disciplinary environment.

Candidates are expected to carry out high-level, independent research, to mentor students, teach at the undergraduate and/or graduate level, and to participate in outreach activities.

Compensation is commensurate with research institutions around the world, with a teaching load similar to U.S. and European universities.

Leandro Aolita (UFRJ/ICTP-SAIFR) and Rafael Chaves (UFRN) win prestigious grants from Instituto Serrapilheira — quantum Rio

The Instituto Serrapilheira has just announced that it will fund six more projects (in addition to the previously announced 65). Leandro Aolita (UFRJ/ICTP-SAIFR) and Rafael Chaves (UFRN) had their quantum information projects funded in this round. Congratulations, Leandro and Rafael!
