Transformative Quantum Technologies (TQT) is a collaborative research initiative led by the University of Waterloo. Building upon the world-renowned strengths of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing, TQT aims to accelerate the development and deployment of impactful quantum devices to further Canada’s position as a leader in the quantum revolution.
We pursue global research excellence centered on three grand challenges that span up to seven years. Our teams and research connect with early adopters, industry, and other stakeholders to develop quantum technology towards applications that deliver societal and economic benefits.
TQT invests in shared research infrastructure and a seed grant program. We support the recruitment and retention of “the best and the brightest” talent. We coordinate with Quantum Valley ecosystem partners and others to accelerate the commercialization of quantum devices.
Formally we are partnered with the University of Ottawa and collaborate internationally with numerous leading quantum research centers.
The Transformative Quantum Technologies (TQT) program at the University of Waterloo has several openings for Postdoctoral Fellowships (PDFs).
These prestigious positions are available immediately and intended for early-career scientists with an advanced degree (PhD). The selected fellow(s) will join the research group of a Principal Investigator through a TQT-funded project, and contribute to the collaborative TQT research community.
Working directly with the Principal Investigator and the Program Director, TQT, the Program Lead, New Initiatives is responsible for identifying, developing and leading the effective implementation of new, strategic initiatives. These new initiatives will: (i) bring sustainability to the TQT program beyond its defined funding term; (ii) augment Waterloo’s existing strengths in quantum science, engineering and technology; (iii) secure new national and international scientific leadership opportunities for Waterloo faculty and students; (iv) enable new interdisciplinary partnerships and collaborations across campus and with private sector partners; and (v) actively contribute towards the creation of a more equitable, diverse and inclusive campus research environment. The Program Lead, New Initiatives will develop reports and provide advice on national and supra-national quantum initiatives worldwide, identify gaps in the quantum ecosystem that present opportunities for Waterloo, for Canada, and for Waterloo’s external stakeholders, and advance key priorities for Waterloo’s quantum research community. The Program Lead, New Initiatives engages with senior stakeholders within and beyond campus – in academia, government and industry, from across the research continuum – to bring forward new world-leading quantum initiatives. The impact of this role is campus-wide, affecting most faculties and the Office of Research. The net result will be a higher-performing local and national quantum infrastructure and research enterprise.
