Position Description:    

The Quantum Information and Device Theory group at the Laboratory for Physical Sciences (LPS), University of Maryland-College Park, is currently seeking talented and motivated postdoctoral candidates in theoretical quantum physics. LPS houses both experimentalists and theorists focused on various aspects of quantum computing and information science with world leading facilities in superconductor and semiconductor-based qubits, atomistic fabrication, superconducting-semiconductor devices, and materials science for quantum computing (molecular beam epitaxy). We propose new types of qubits and quantum systems to advance fundamental physics and for practical application in quantum computing, simulation, and sensing. We collaborate with experimental groups around the world to understand and advance the state of the art in quantum information science.

Candidates should have one or more of the following areas of expertise:
We are seeking qualified theory applicants for the following (multiple) projects:
Applicants should be open to working with experimental groups on problems of practical interest as well as developing novel theory addressing fundamental open problems. The recently launched LPS Qubit Collaboratory offers ample opportunity to participate in multi-institution collaborations in LQC research thrust projects.

Qualified applicants should submit the following via this website or directly to Yariv Yanay at
