Job position at University of Ottawa. Deadline is on


Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Quantum Electronic Devices and Circuits

Job summary
The Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering  at the University of Ottawa invite applications for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Quantum electronic devices and circuits. The successful candidate will be appointed as an Associate or Assistant Professor. The University of Ottawa is located on the unceded ancestral land of the Algonquin people and its location in the National Capital Region provides many collaborative research opportunities, including through the Ottawa-Carleton Institute of Physics and the Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Electrical and Computer Engineering, which are joint graduate programs with Carleton University as well as the National Research Council. The Faculties of Science and Engineering value collegiality and applicants should identify ways they contribute positively to their academic communities.

The candidate will grow an exceptional, externally-funded research program in the broad area of quantum electronic devices and circuits. This is a cross-disciplinary position (Department of Physics in the Faculty of Science and The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in the Faculty of Engineering) that will bridge the existing theoretical and experimental expertise including emerging quantum materials, semiconductor optoelectronic devices, organic electronics, and ML/AI.  A broad range of topics are of interest for this position: development of nanoscale devices, materials and interfaces for applications in emerging technologies including quantum computing, sensing, renewable energies, and telecommunications. These can include solid-state hybrid quantum devices, neuromorphic computing hardware, superconducting circuits, topological electronics, spintronics, etc. The selected candidate will build or expand partnerships and research collaborations within University of Ottawa’s Nexus for Quantum Technologies (NexQT-NexTQ) Institute, industry, colleagues in the Faculty of Science and Faculty of Engineering as well as with leading governmental, non-governmental, and educational organizations located in Canada and especially in the National Capital Region.
