The Center for Theoretical Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is seeking applications for a junior faculty appointment in all areas of its activities. We encourage applicants working in quantum computing and quantum information, including high-energy, nuclear, condensed-matter, and atomic-molecular-and-optical physicists whose interests have a strong overlap with quantum information. We also welcome candidates who would strengthen connections between physics and computer science. Candidates will be evaluated on the basis of potential contributions to theoretical physics research, and to the undergraduate and graduate teaching programs of the MIT Department of Physics. Interviews will occur in February 2020.
Faculty members at MIT conduct research, teach undergraduate and graduate courses, and supervise graduate and undergraduate participation in research. Candidates must show promise in teaching as well as in research. A Ph.D. in physics or physics-related discipline is required by the start of employment. Preference will be given to applicants at the Assistant Professor level.
