The Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) is inviting applications for postdoctoral positions in all aspects of quantum information processing, bridging areas from fundamental theory to physical implementations.
Quantum information science and technology aims to develop applications and devices that will harness the quantum world and lead to technologies that will form the economic engine of the 21st century.
IQC is a world-leading institute for research and education in quantum information at the University of Waterloo. It has, at present, 17 faculty members who lead thriving research programs spanning the departments of Applied Mathematics, Chemistry, Combinatorics and Optimization, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering and Physics and Astronomy.
IQC seeks promising candidates to help advance our understanding of the foundations of quantum information, to develop new quantum applications and algorithms, to implement these ideas in laboratory experiments and engineered systems and to transfer this knowledge to industry. A PhD and proven ability, or strong potential, for excellence in research is required.
IQC members also have the opportunity to interact with scientists at the nearby Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, and the University of Waterloo's Centre for Applied Cryptographic Research.
