Postdoctoral Research Associate in Theoretical Quantum Information Science

Full Time
Employment Information

Quantum Engineering Science and technology (QUEST) group at UMass Lowell invites applications for postdoctoral scholar position in theory and phenomenology of quantum information processing. This position is for a minimum of two years with several possibilities of extensions, and comes with competitive salary and benefits. While background in quantum information sciences is highly desirable, we strongly encourage applications from promising candidates across a broad spectrum of fields, such as quantum field theory, high-energy physics, computer science, mathematics and/or AMO. The postdocs will be a part of a growing and vibrant group of researchers working on a diverse range of topics such as quantum reservoir engineering, quantum control and annealing, nonlinear quantum optics, quantum many body systems. We also have close ties with leading experimental groups focusing on superconducting quantum circuits, which form the primary outlook for practical realization of our research.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in physics, computer science, mathematics or a related engineering or science discipline obtained within the last five years, and research experience as demonstrated by technical publications and/or presentations.

Special Instructions to Applicants:

  • Initial review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. However, the position may close when an adequate number of qualified applications is received, so interested candidates are encourage to apply early.
  • The position is open to US citizens/permanent residents and international applicants.
  • The initial term of appointment is two years, with potential extensions contingent on satisfactory research progress and the availability of funding.
  • Please apply through the UML job portal…
