The Physics Department at Virginia Tech invites applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher in quantum information or condensed matter theory. The research involves construction and analysis of quantum computing algorithms. Example areas of interest include measurement-based quantum computation, quantum simulation, and quantum many-body physics. Expertise in computational methods is highly desirable, but it is not a prerequisite. The position includes opportunities for travel both to present at conferences and to collaborate with other groups. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in physics or a related field. This research will be conducted with Prof. Vito Scarola (email@example.com) and his research group at Virginia Tech (scarola.phys.vt.edu).
To apply, submit an online application that includes a curriculum vitae, a cover letter, and a list of at least 3 references to jobs.vt.edu (job number 511841). Interested applicants can also contact Professor Vito Scarola, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
