Institut de Physique Theorique, CEA-Saclay

Position ID:CEA-Saclay-Institut de Physique Theorique-PP [#12691]
Position Title: Permanent position in Quantum Physics and Quantum Information
Position Type:Tenured/Tenure-track faculty
Position Location:Gif sur Yvette, Ile de France 91191, France [map]
Subject Areas: Physics / Computational physics, Condensed Matter Theory, Physics - Mathematical Physics, Quantum Computing, Quantum Information Science, Quantum Science
Appl Deadline:2019/01/17 (posted 2018/11/07, listed until 2019/03/31)
Position Description:    

We are looking for a theorist interested in one or several of the following topics in Quantum Physics and Quantum Information. 
  • Quantum information from conceptual aspects to concrete systems 
  • Quantum computation, simulation and algorithms 
  • Correlations, dynamics and transport in quantum systems and quantum matter 
  • Manipulations and control of quantum systems 
Preference will be given 
  • (i) either to a junior candidate
  • (ii) or to a more senior candidate* (associate professor level), in order to find the best fit with the local environment
* In case of a more senior hire, there will be the opportunity for hiring a permanent junior theorist in the same area in the next two years. 

 The candidate will find at IPhT researchers already interested in quantum physics and quantum information, and a strong community of researchers working in condensed matter physics, statistical and mathematical physics, as well as researchers in quantum field theory and quantum gravity, with whom to interact. He/she will also have the opportunity and the incentive to develop contact and collaborations with other groups at CEA, in particular with the quantronic and nanoelectronics groups at IRAMIS/SPEC, and other labs at CEA-Paris-Saclay and at CEA-Grenoble.  

The environment of Paris-Saclay provides an exciting and very stimulating playground for quantum physics, quantum optics and condensed matter physics. IPhT is a member of the Paris-Saclay Departments PhOM (Physique des Ondes et de la Matière) and LMH (Mathematics and Applications).
