at the Institute for Quantum Computing
The Institute for Quantum Computing is inviting applications for postdoctoral positions in all aspects of quantum information processing, bridging areas from fundamental theory to physical implementations. Quantum information science aims to develop transformational technologies that harness the power of quantum mechanics. The Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) is a world-leading institute for research in quantum information at the University of Waterloo. IQC has 24 faculty members and growing, whose research programs span the areas of Applied Mathematics, Chemistry, Combinatorics & Optimization, Computer Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Physics & Astronomy, and Pure Mathematics. IQC members have the opportunity to interact with other research groups at the University, such as the Centre for Applied Cryptographic Research and the nearby Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. New infrastructure, including an advanced nanofabrication and metrology centre, support an expansion of experimental research programs at IQC. We are based in the new Mike and Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre, a state-of-the-art facility at the heart of the University of Waterloo campus, which provides unprecedented opportunities for research, collaboration and innovation. We seek promising candidates to help advance the understanding of the foundations of quantum information, to develop new quantum applications and algorithms, and to implement these ideas in laboratory experiments and engineered systems. A PhD and proven ability, or strong potential, for excellence in research is required. For information on how to join IQC as a postdoctoral fellow, please visit the Available positions link at https://uwaterloo.ca/institute-for-quantum-computing/. The preferred deadline for receiving applications is November 1, 2016, but applications may be considered year-round. Candidates are also encouraged to visit the NSERC website to learn about the prestigious Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship. The deadline for the Banting Fellowship applications is September 21, 2016; qualified candidates should contact a potential supervisor immediately. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. The University of Waterloo encourages applications from all qualified individuals, members of visible minorities, native peoples, and persons with disabilities.
