Application deadline: 

Saturday, January 14, 2012

The C. N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics at Stony Brook University invites applications for a postdoctoral position in quantum information science with anticipated appointment date of September 1, 2012.

The Institute has a long tradition of interaction with the Departments of Physics and Astronomy and Mathematics. Research in theoretical physics and related fields at the University is also enriched by the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics.

The current interest in quantum information science includes, but is not limited to, quantum computational models (such as measurement-based, topological, and adiabatic), quantum entanglement in many-body systems, theoretical investigation of various physical systems for quantum information processing, and applications of tensor product states. Required: Ph.D. in Physics or related field.

To apply, upload curriculum vitae, publication list, research plan, and arrange to have three letters of reference submitted online at:

Alternatively, submit the applications materials listed above to: Search Chair, Postdoctoral Associate (7077) Search, C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics, Mathematics Building, Room 6118,
Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY 11794-3840.

Review of applications will begin January 15, 2012, and continue until the position is filled.

Stony Brook University/SUNY is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer.
