*** this position has been closed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The MIT Center for Theoretical Physics hopes to make one or more postdoctoral appointments in the theory of Quantum Information Science / Quantum Computing to begin September 1, 2024. Current senior members of the group include Soonwon Choi, Isaac Chuang, Edward Farhi, Jeffrey Goldstone and Aram Harrow in the Physics department as well as Peter Shor in Math, Seth Lloyd in Mechanical Engineering, and Anand Natarajan in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The interests of this group cover almost all areas of the field and we seek applicants coming from all areas. Apply to the position at: Applications should include a CV, statement of research interests, a list of publications, and the names of three senior researchers who will provide letters of recommendation. MIT is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. There are also postdoctoral positions available in the CTP in nuclear theory and high-energy theory If your research aligns with more than one of these areas, or if you are unsure whether your research fits the description for a given position, we encourage you to apply for all CTP positions which might be relevant. The CTP seeks a broad and diverse applicant pool, and welcomes applications from candidates at the intersections of (sub)fields. For full consideration, applications should be received by 11.59pm US Eastern time on November 15, 2023, including all letters of recommendation. The application will request that you select which faculty you are most likely to interact with scientifically; this is a required question, and if you do not answer it then your application will be considered incomplete.

Note to applicants: acceptance deadlines will be determined on a case-by-case basis, with an earliest possible deadline date of January 7, 2024. We expect that for a substantial fraction of postdoc offers made this year, the deadline can be sufficiently flexible to accommodate differing deadlines from other institutions/fellowships. Please contact us with any further questions.

MIT is an equal employment opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, ancestry, or national or ethnic origin. MIT’s full policy on Nondiscrimination can be found here.
