Job position at University of Massachusetts-Amherst (ECE). Deadline is on

Assistant Professor

Quantum Information Systems

Job summary
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Amherst invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor level in the broad area of Quantum Information Systems and Applications. The appointment is expected to begin September 1, 2023.

The position is defined broadly across the entire scope of quantum information. Scholars working across disciplines or in nontraditional areas of quantum systems and their applications are particularly encouraged.  Expertise in quantum hardware and fundamental qubit technology in any current qubit modality including but not limited to: photonic qubits, superconducting qubits, spin qubits and quantum dots. This will allow the new faculty to work on many applications for quantum computing, quantum networking, quantum communications and quantum sensing.

Specific areas of interest include but are not limited to:

  • scaling of quantum processor architectures, including integration with classical architectures
  • engineering new methods/materials to improve qubit coherence and qubit gate fidelity
  • development of scalable devices and techniques for: single photon sources and detectors, quantum memories, routers, and transducers
