The Harvard Quantum Initiative in Science and Engineering 
invites applications for 
Postdoctoral Fellowships in Quantum Science and Engineering 

The Harvard Quantum Initiative in Science and Engineering (HQI) seeks postdoctoral fellows for the academic year 2022-2023. The HQI is an interdisciplinary initiative that pairs basic science with quantum engineering, taking place across the departments of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Active research areas include quantum information and computer science; quantum many-body physics; quantum precision measurements and fundamental physics; quantum metrology, sensing, and control; and quantum chemistry and materials science. 
We invite applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships in Quantum Science and Engineering. Fellowships are awarded for a duration of two years to outstanding young scientists and engineers, with the possibility of a third year via support from their research supervisor. Applicants should have a strong background for pursuit of research in their area of interest. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work in a rich cross-disciplinary environment within the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Applications focused on collaborative and cross-disciplinary research are especially encouraged. For current Harvard graduate students, consideration will be given to candidates who wish to join a lab different from where they did their PhD research. 

Applicants should have completed their Ph.D. no more than three years before starting the fellowship. The start date is flexible, but should be within a year of application. To apply, submit a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and a brief description of research interests and goals (description of research interests and goals not to exceed 500 words). Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference. All materials are accepted only through the website listed below. For full consideration, please apply by November 1, 2021. Interviews will be held in early December. Applications may be considered on a rolling basis until the positions are filled.

Harvard is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions or any other characteristic protected by law.
