The Institut Quantique is a research institute at the Université de Sherbrooke that focuses on quantum science and technologies. We bring together experts in quantum materials, quantum information and quantum engineering with the aim of performing top-quality fundamental research and developing the quantum technologies of the future. Significant investment from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF) is currently leading to a rapid increase in recruitment at the Institut Quantique, including these fellowships and a number of new faculty positions.Our institute includes state-of-the-art experimental and computational research infrastructure, maintained by a team of skilled technicians and research associates. We maintain a dynamic research environment with several weekly seminars as well as yearly summer schools and workshops in quantum materials, quantum information, mesoscopic physics or numerical methods. Research at the Institut Quantique is highly collaborative and strengthened by well-established international connections.
