La Comunidad de Madrid ha aprobado la convocatoria “Atracción de Talento”. Esta convocatoria permitirá la incorporación de unos 80 doctores-investigadores que trabajen fuera de España a grupos de investigación de organismos e instituciones de la Comunidad de Madrid como Universidades, IMDEAs, organismos y centros de investigación o instituciones sanitarias.
Se convocarán tres tipos de ayudas.
Call for Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships at the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems (SURF-IFISC).
We offer up to 6 fellowships for introduction to academic research at the Institute for Cross-disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems (IFISC) under the supervision of an IFISC researche, for research work to be developed between June 15 and July 31 (2016).
The candidate must be enrolled in an official degree and must have passed at least 120 ECTS of his/her degree. This call requires a minimum average qualification of 6/10. Fellowships have assigned a total research work of 150 hours, equivalent to four weeks working full time. Each fellowship provides 600 Euros for
students living in Mallorca and 900 Euros otherwise. Students living outside
Mallorca can apply for a travel grant that in any case cannot exceed 500
The deadline for sending the application is May 1 (2016).

We would like to bring to your attention the school "Nanotechnology meets Quantum Information", that will take place in San Sebastian, Spain in July 11-14, 2016. The school reviews the state-of-the-art of solid-state based quantum information processing in settings such as quantum dots, superconductors, photonic crystals, and topological matter. Prospects of quantum computing and the study of quantum many-body physics are explored.
The school is oriented towards Master/PhD students and young postdocs with a background in nanotechnologies, condensed matter or quantum optics and an interest in the methods and applications of quantum information. For further information and registration see: http://nanoqi.dipc.org/ We would be grateful if you could bring the School to the attention of your group and to anyone else that might be interested. Pre-registration and abstract submission are open.

Javier Prior's group at the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena (UPCT) has one postdoctoral vacancy for two years in the field of Dynamics of Open Quantum Systems.
The project will be related with the new topic of quantum biological systems and the study of artificial photovoltaic material as conjugated polymers. The appointment will be made within the structure of the UPCT on a two-year contract basis (35000 Euros per year before taxes) (starting date June/july 2016) Requirements: A relevant doctorate of high standing and knowledge of open quantum systems. It will be appreciate knowledge of and Density Matrix Renormalization group DMRG and simulations of 2D photon eco spectroscopy.

This conference is part of a series of itinerant events aiming to be a reference for the Spanish community working in Quantum Information. Several contributed talks, posters (with flash plenary presentations), an international collection of 9 invited talks, and discussion time are planned. As a novelty, before the conference there will be the first RICE School "New trends in Quantum Information" promoted by the Spanish Network on Quantum Information (RICE) as a training opportunity in four selected topics: Tensor Networks, Cold Atoms, Quantum Correlations and Circuit QED. Please look at the respective web-pages for information about invited speakers, lecturers,and scientific committees.
Registration to the Conference and the School and abstract submissions, for oral and poster presentations, will open the 11th of January 2016 and will last until the 15th of February 2016.
Please register through the respective web-pages:

This month we talk to Verónica Fernández Mármol, a CSIC researcher working on experimental quantum cryptography in Madrid. Read the full text here.
"Articles", con la idea de explicar la investigación que se realiza en la red y dar a conocer los investigadores que forman parte de ella. Esta sección contendrá textos divulgativos, incluyendo textos sobre nuestros temas de investigación, resultados relevantes, así como entrevistas y perfiles de los investigadores y grupos que trabajan en la red.
Hoy innauguramos esta sección con una breve presentación y entrevista a Antonio Acín, investigador del Instituto de Ciencias Fotónicas (ICFO), que trabaja en teoría de la información cuántica. Esperamos que disfrutéis del texto y agradecemos al Prof. Acín su colaboración. Aprovechamos además esta ocasión para solicitar contribuciones de los miembros de la red que podamos ir incorporando a esa página.
In a modest effort to popularize the research done in this network, as well as to make the members of the network better known to the general public, we are opening a modest section called "Articles". This section is devoted to outreach texts, including descriptions of research topics, brief press releases of key results, and interviews or profiles of the network's groups.
Today we open this section with a brief presentation and interview of Antonio Acín, a well known researcher working at ICFO in the field of Theoretical Quantum Information. We hope you will enjoy it and thank Prof. Acín for his collaboration.
