The research group of Professor Aash Clerk (University of Chicago) invites applications for an open postdoctoral position in the general areas of theoretical quantum condensed matter physics, quantum optics and quantum information. Areas of interest include dynamics, control, topology and correlations in driven dissipative quantum systems, with a focus on connecting to experimental platforms (especially superconducting circuits). The group also has interests related to quantum sensing and metrology. More information on the interests of the group can be found at http://clerkgroup.uchicago.edu. Applicants should have a strong background in either theoretical condensed matter physics or theoretical quantum optics.
This position is a full-time one-year appointment, with the option of renewal for a second year by mutual agreement. The nominal start date is September 1, 2021 (though earlier start dates are possible).
