The Department of Applied Physics at Yale University invites applications for a faculty appointment in the area of experimental quantum information science. Applications will be considered at the tenured Associate Professor/Full Professor level. This is intended to be a broad search to identify a candidate at the mid-career level in the general area of experimental quantum computing and quantum information science. We welcome applications from a wide range of platforms and physical systems. Quantum science and engineering is one of five top priority areas identified in the University’s Science Strategy Report and we have a vibrant and expanding community both in the Yale Quantum Institute and described more broadly at Quantum at Yale. Yale is engaged in a campus-wide investment in quantum science, engineering, and materials across a range of departments, and expects to conduct additional searches in these areas in future years.
The successful candidate is expected to initiate a vibrant research group, be an interactive member of the Applied Physics Department, and contribute to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. We are especially interested in candidates who, through their research, teaching, and/or service, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. To promote diversity, the Department welcomes applications from women, persons with disabilities, protected veterans, and underrepresented minorities. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Applied Physics, Physics, or an equivalent degree, at the time of the hire. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2022. Applicants should create a profile in Interfolio, http://apply.interfolio.com/82467, and upload a cover letter, CV, a statement of current and future research plans (up to five pages), a teaching statement (up to one page), a diversity statement (up to one page), and up to 5 reprints of papers published or in press.
Applications that are complete by June 1, 2021 will receive full consideration, but review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
Yale University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer. Yale values diversity among its students, staff, and faculty and strongly welcomes applications from women, persons with disabilities, protected veterans, and underrepresented minorities.
Employer will assist with relocation costs.
About Yale Department of Applied Physics
The Department of Applied Physics has three main areas of research focus: physics and devices from novel materials, optical physics and devices, and quantum information and device physics. The faculty are engaged in a broad range of research programs, including quantum computing, superconducting devices, complex materials and new devices based on them, nonlinear optics, nano and micro-optical devices, as well as theoretical studies of novel materials, phenomena and optical microsystems. Offering degree programs leading to the B.A., B.S., M.S., and Ph.D., the department prepares students for academic and industrial careers at the forefront of science and technology. Teaching and research are focused on fundamental issues in condensed matter and optical physics and on the practical application of these concepts and techniques to technology.
