Postdoctoral position in Theoretical Quantum Information - QUEST group@UMass Lowell

Job type: 

QUantum Engineering Science and technology (QUEST) group at UMass Lowell invites applications for postdoctoral scholar position in theory and phenomenology of quantum information processing. The initial term of appointment is two years, contingent on satisfactory research progress. Selected candidate is expected to join in spring–early summer 2019, though some flexibility in start date maybe accommodated.

Primary research interests of the UML-QUEST group are quantum information processing and quantum optics with low dimensional systems. In addition, we actively collaborate with theorists across a broad spectrum including those in quantum foundations, quantum condensed matter and quantum cosmology. 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 must have a doctoral degree in Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related discipline before the start date of the position and have a proven record of research in the areas of quantum information science or quantum optics. Ideal candidate will have diverse expertise and experience in theory of open quantum systems and quantum optics. He/She is expected to undertake analytical and numerical studies to develop new concepts and tools for the study of engineered quantum systems, with a focus on high‐fidelity quantum control, quantum feedback and nonreciprocal quantum dynamics. The candidate is also expected to mentor and work closely with graduate and undergraduate students in the group.

Applications should include
(i) a detailed CV including a list of publications,
(ii) brief statement of research interests,
(iii) reference letters by two referees,
and should be forwarded to:

Archana Kamal
Assistant Professor, Department of Physics and Applied Physics, UMass Lowell

Initial review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
