Postdoctoral Scholar - Theory of superconducting quantum circuits & circuit QED The group of Prof. Alexandre Blais at the Institut quantique invites applications for postdoctoral scholar positions in theoretical quantum information science and quantum optics. Areas of interest include superconducting quantum circuits, circuit QED, quantum error correction, microwave quantum optics, variational quantum algorithms, and machine learning. Applicants should be highly motivated and have a strong background in one of the above-mentioned subjects. The appointments are expected to be for 2 years. The start date is flexible.About the Institut quantique and A. Blais' research groupLocated in Quebec, Canada, the Institut quantique (IQ) is a collaborative environment with nearly 200 students, postdocs and faculty members working in the fields of quantum information science, quantum engineering and quantum materials. A new IQ building with collaborative spaces will be ready in 2021. Earlier this year, IQ launched its IBM Q Hub – the first in Canada – which offers its members exclusive access to IBM most advanced quantum computing systems. Within IQ, members of Alexandre Blais’ group have the opportunity to collaborate with academic and industrial groups worldwide, and are part of the Quantum Science Accelerator recently funded by the US Department of Energy. More information on the Institut quantique and on Alexandre Blais’ group can be found and . To applyPlease submit a cover letter and a CV including a list of publications. Applicants should also arrange to have two letters of references sent in support of the application. Applications will be considered until the positions are filled.
