The Joint Quantum Institute is seeking exceptional candidates for the Joint Quantum Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship in Theoretical Quantum Physics. JQI Theoretical Postdoctoral Fellows are expected to work in close collaboration with one or ideally more than one JQI Fellows. The successful applicant has the freedom to choose from a variety of research areas. Quantum information science utilizes many different physical systems. At JQI, researchers can work in areas such as quantum condensed matter physics, many-body physics, degenerate gases, quantum information, quantum optics, and superconductivity. Applicants are encouraged to explore the JQI website (jqi.umd.edu) and to contact JQI Fellows to inquire about current research interests. Research may be carried out at the University of Maryland campus or the NIST campus in Gaithersburg.
The term of appointment is two years at a salary of $67,588 per year plus benefits and a small stipend for research expenses. The deadline for the theoretical fellowship application is on Nov. 15, 2016.
The Joint Quantum Institute is a research partnership between University of Maryland (UMD) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology, with the support and participation of the Laboratory for Physical Sciences. Created in 2006 to pursue theoretical and experimental studies of quantum physics in the context of information science and technology, JQI is located on UMD's College Park campus.
