Hi everyone. The SPIN off QuBIT September meeting at IFUSP will take place on the 27th and 28th, next week. A tentative schedule is now available at the event’s page.
Jens Einsert just published a call for PhD and post- doc positions in the fields of Quantum information and Quantum thermodynamics.
For more information see
Check out the new book on graph approaches to contextuality, from Prof. Marcelo Terra Cunha (IMECC UNICAMP) and Barbara Amaral (UFSJ).
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!
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.
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.
Diego Paiva Pires, who did his PhD at IFSC under the supervision of Prof. Diogo Soares-Pinto, won the “best thesis” from the University of São Paulo. The thesis was titled “Geometria da informação quântica: uma abordagem geral acerca do tempo de evolução.”

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!
