The Institute for Quantum Information and Matter (IQIM) at Caltech invites applications for postdoctoral scholar positions in quantum science. IQIM research spans Caltech's departments of physics, applied physics, electrical engineering, computer science, and chemistry, and addresses a wide variety of experimental and theoretical research topics. These topics include, but are not limited to, quantum information science, quantum many-body physics in condensed matter and atomic systems, topological states of matter, quantum optics and light-matter interactions at the quantum level, quantum cavity-optomechanics, and quantum metrology. IQIM also has active visitor, seminar, and outreach programs.
In particular, the Brinson Prize Fellowship will be awarded to a candidate who intends to conduct theoretical or experimental research at the interface of quantum information science and quantum gravity.
Please apply online at https://applications.caltech.edu/jobs/iqim. Applicants will be asked to name at least one Caltech faculty member they would like to work with. That faculty member need not be affiliated currently with IQIM. Electronic copies of your curriculum vitae, publication list, statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation are required. Review of applications begins on November 15, 2020; applicants are strongly encouraged to submit all materials by that date. The appointment is contingent upon completion of a Ph.D.
