The Quantum Information Science cluster at Syracuse University (SU), Syracuse, NY, is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to collaborate on research focused on theoretical quantum information science and its applications. All qualified candidates will be considered, but we are looking in particular for those who already have knowledge of some specialized field (e.g. high-energy theory, gravity, many-body physics, cosmology) and seek to apply quantum information concepts (such as entanglement, thermalization, coarse-graining, and decoherence) to it. We particularly invite candidates interested in the application of quantum information to cosmology. Successful candidates will join Dr. Jason Pollack’s research group in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science; they will be welcome to advise students and collaborate with other members of the Department as well as the Department of Physics. This postdoctoral position is for up to three years starting in Fall 2024.

A shortlist of candidates will be interviewed via Zoom in January 2024. In accordance with the disciplinary accords for postdocs in High-Energy Theory, Astronomy & Astrophysics, and Mathematics, no offer made to a candidate will require acceptance before February 15, 2024.

In addition to applying through AJO, applicants must fill out a Syracuse job application at

About the Syracuse area

Syracuse is a medium-sized city situated in the geographic center of New York State approximately 250 miles northwest of New York City. The metro-area population totals approximately 500,000. The area offers a low cost of living and provides many social, cultural, and recreational options, including parks, museums, festivals, professional regional theater, and premier shopping venues. Syracuse and Central New York present a wide range of seasonal recreation and attractions ranging from water skiing and snow skiing, hiking in the Adirondacks, touring the historic sites, visiting wineries along the Finger Lakes, and biking on trails along the Erie Canal.

EEO Statement

Syracuse University is an equal-opportunity, affirmative-action institution. The University prohibits discrimination and harassment based on race, color, creed, religion, sex, gender, national origin, citizenship, ethnicity, marital status, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, veteran status, or any other status protected by applicable law to the extent prohibited by law. This nondiscrimination policy covers admissions, employment, and access to and treatment in University programs, services, and activities.

Commitment to Supporting and Hiring Veterans

Syracuse University has a long history of engaging veterans and the military-connected community through its educational programs, community outreach, and employment programs. After World War II, Syracuse University welcomed more than 10,000 returning veterans to our campus, and those veterans literally transformed Syracuse University into the national research institution it is today. The University’s contemporary commitment to veterans builds on this historical legacy, and extends to both class-leading initiatives focused on making an SU degree accessible and affordable to the post-9/11 generation of veterans, and also programs designed to position Syracuse University as the employer of choice for military veterans, members of the Guard and Reserve, and military family members.

Commitment to a Diverse and Inclusive Campus Community

Syracuse University maintains an inclusive learning environment in which students, faculty, administrators, staff, curriculum, social activities, governance, and all other aspects of campus life reflect a diverse, multi-cultural, and international worldview. The University community recognizes and values the many similarities and differences among individuals and groups. At Syracuse, we are committed to preparing students to understand, live among, appreciate, and work in an inherently diverse country and world made up of people with different ethnic and racial backgrounds, military backgrounds, religious beliefs, socio-economic status, cultural traditions, abilities, sexual orientations and gender identities. To do so, we commit ourselves to promoting a community that celebrates and models the principles of diversity and inclusivity.
