The Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) at the University of Chicago invites applications at the ranks of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Professor in the general area of theoretical quantum science and engineering. Before the start of employment, qualified applicants must hold a doctoral degree or equivalent in a field related to theoretical and/or computational quantum engineering, or related disciplines. They must also have a strong record of independent research in theoretical quantum science and engineering. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) quantum information, quantum communication, quantum sensing, quantum error correction, quantum mechanical materials modelling, quantum optics and quantum simulations on classical and quantum computers.

Candidates for Associate or Full Professor must have evidence of leadership in their field and an outstanding track record independent research, allowing them to qualify for appointment as a tenured professor in the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (or jointly with another department in the University).
