The department of physics at the Universite de Sherbrooke invites applications for a postdoctoral position in quantum information theory in the group of Alexandre Blais. The group’s main area of research is the physics of superconducting qubits and solid-state realizations of quantum optics (circuit QED). We offer an active and stimulating research environment, enhanced by strong local and international collaborations.
Preference will be given to applicants with expertise in quantum optics, superconducting qubits, quantum aspects of condensed matter theory or quantum information theory. Candidates should provide a CV including a list of publications, a brief statement of research interests and should arrange for at least two letters of recommendations to be sent to: a[dot]blais[at]usherbrooke[dot]ca. Applications and letters should be received by December 12, 2008. The position is available immediately.
