Former postdoctoral fellow David Gosset returns to the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) as an Associate Professor in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization at the University of Waterloo.
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) reappointed Kevin Resch, interim director of IQC, as Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Optical Quantum Technologies. The five-year Tier II appointment, will allow Resch and his team to bring three streams of optics research together in order accelerate the development of quantum technologies.
A new conference for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in quantum science aims to foster collaboration and provide a glimpse into the exciting research taking place in Canada.
Hosted jointly by the three Canada First Excellence Research Fund (CFREF) programs— the Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute (SBQMI), Institut Quantique (IQ), and Transformative Quantum Technologies (TQT)— the Canadian Graduate Quantum Conference runs June 20-22 at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver.
