General Summary of Position:
Quantum Engineering Science and technology (QUEST) group at UMass Lowell invites applications for postdoctoral scholar position in theory and phenomenology of quantum information processing. This position is for a minimum of two years with several possibilities of extensions, and comes with competitive salary and benefits. While background in quantum information sciences is highly desirable, we strongly encourage applications from promising candidates across a broad spectrum of fields, such as quantum field theory, high-energy physics, computer science, mathematics and/or AMO. The postdocs will be a part of a growing and vibrant group of researchers working on a diverse range of topics such as dissipative quantum systems, quantum control and annealing, nonlinear quantum optics, quantum many body systems. We also have close ties with leading experimental groups focusing on superconducting quantum circuits, which form the primary outlook for practical realization of our research.
Ideal candidate will have diverse expertise and experience in physics of quantum information processing, many-body quantum systems and/or non-equilibrium quantum matter. They will be expected to undertake analytical and numerical studies to develop new concepts and tools for the study of engineered quantum systems, with a focus on quantum reservoir engineering, quantum control and feedback, and nonreciprocal quantum dynamics. The candidate is also expected to mentor and work closely with graduate and undergraduate students in the group.
