College of Science, Virginia Tech Open Rank Faculty Position in Theoretical Quantum Information Science
October 30, 2019
As part of plans to build on existing strengths, expand in the field of quantum information science, and align with state-wide investments in data sciences and cybersecurity, the College of Science at Virginia Tech invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Theoretical Quantum Information Science at any rank (assistant professor, associate professor, or full professor).
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, quantum information theory, quantum error correction, quantum algorithms, quantum control, quantum sensing, the interface of quantum information and many-body theory, holography in quantum information, quantum networks, theory of entanglement, adiabatic quantum computation, and topological quantum computation.
The successful candidate will be expected to establish a vigorous and externally well-funded research program, to teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and to actively participate in department, college, and university governance. The successful candidate will become a faculty member either in the Mathematics or Physics department. Joint appointments between the two departments will also be considered, as appropriate.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in math, physics or a closely related field by appointment start date. Postdoctoral experience is preferred. The position requires occasional travel to attend conferences and meetings.
