If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Postdoctoral Position Available

Christopher Fuchs, Jacques Pienaar, and Ruediger Schack are seeking a postdoctoral researcher for a recently awarded John Templeton Foundation grant to set up a three-year international consortium to explore, "What is Metrology if Quantum Measurements Participate in Making Reality?" QBism is part of the subject of research, but not exclusively so, as the grant is based upon a healthy debate between a number of parties.

The position (1 year, renewable up to 3) would be based at Royal Holloway University of London working predominantly with Ruediger Schack. However, it would also require a significant amount of travel each year to build synergy between the consortium nodes — Fuchs and Pienaar in Boston, Michel Bitbol at CNRS in Paris, the UFRJ experimental group in Rio de Janeiro, Adam Frank at the University of Rochester, Marcelo Gleiser at Dartmouth College, Richard Healey on the southern coast of Spain, Klaus Moelmer at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, Eran Tal at McGill University in Montreal, Christopher Timpson at the University of Oxford, Harald Wiltsche at Linkoping University in Sweden, and Jun Ye at JILA in Boulder, Colorado. As might be expected, the position will come with a fairly large travel budget.

The position can start any time after 1 September 2022, but we are targeting that it will be filled no later than January 2023. We are looking for either a physicsy-inclined philosopher or a philosophically-inclined physicist. Either way, a researcher preferably sympathetic to developing connections between quantum interpretation and phenomenology (Husserl, Merleau-Ponty) and/or pragmatism (James, Dewey, Price, Brandom) and/or a Bayesian who can prove new quantum de Finetti theorems. (These preferences, however, are not an absolute requirement.)

Please direct all enquiries to Christopher Fuchs at

We are seeking to appoint a Professor to provide leadership within the Centre for Quantum Technology to establish the University of Glasgow as an internationally recognised centre of excellence in quantum technology, from fundamental understanding through to translating world-changing technologies to generate societal and/or industrial impact.

The Centre at the University of Glasgow brings together physicists, engineers and computer scientists to tackle cutting-edge scientific and technological research and innovation in the area of Quantum Technology. This allows the Centre to play a fundamental role in the UK National Quantum Technology Programme; leading QuantIC, the UK Quantum Technology Hub in Imaging and participating in all four Quantum Technology Hubs in the UK programme. In playing this role Glasgow draws upon its world class facilities in the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre.

The position requires an individual with a track record on delivering world class research in Quantum Technologies to develop and expand on existing strengths in the Centre. The post holder will establish a new research group in computationally assisted quantum imaging/sensing working at the interface of hardware and algorithm design, but other areas relating to our quantum research at the University of Glasgow will also be considered.

The post holder will increase internal coordination and cohesion, attract, and retain talent, develop skills at all levels, drive large strategic research and innovation initiatives including plans for a National Institute for Quantum Integration and form stronger partnerships with academic, industrial and government stakeholders.

Informal enquires may be directed to Professor Miles Padgett FRS at .

We strongly endorse the principles of Athena SWAN, including a supportive and flexible working environment, with commitment from all levels of the organisation in promoting gender equity. The School of Physics and Astronomy is the proud holder of an Athena SWAN Silver Award. Interviewees will be eligible for carer's expenses, which will be covered by the Schoo
