We are looking for a highly motivated, well-qualified postdoctoral fellow interested in conducting research in theoretical quantum information science, with emphasis on open quantum systems and quantum control engineering. Focus topics include (but are not limited to): methods for control, characterization, and verification in intermediate-scale open quantum systems; noise-tailored error correction and dynamical control for quantum fault tolerance; quantum sensing and metrology in spatiotemporally correlated noise environments; many-body quantum sensors.
We are a very active and interdisciplinary research group with interests ranging from abstract theory to experimental implementations, and are presently engaged in a number of national and international collaborations. Please visit our webpage at https://sites.dartmouth.edu/lorenzaviola-group/ for additional detail and ongoing projects, or feel free to inquire directly.
The position is fully funded for a two-year period, further renewable subject to continued funding and satisfactory performance. No formal teaching duties are envisioned; however, opportunities to engage in lecturing will be available if desired, and participation in graduate-student mentoring is anticipated. The starting date is negotiable, though earlier starting dates will be highly preferred. Priority will be given to applicants with relevant expertise in one or more of the above focus areas.
Qualified candidates should email a complete application -- cover letter, current Vitae, and a research statement (3 pages max) focusing on motivations for joining and future plans -- as well as arrange for 3 recommendation letters to be sent electronically to Prof. Lorenza Viola, Lorenza.Viola@Dartmouth.edu. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2020, and will continue until the position is filled.
About Dartmouth College
Founded in 1769, Dartmouth is a member of the Ivy League and is consistently included among the highest-ranked universities in the United States. Dartmouth has forged a unique identity for combining a deep commitment to outstanding undergraduate and graduate education with distinguished research across 19 graduate programs in the Arts and Sciences, plus four leading graduate and professional schools. The Department of Physics and Astronomy, in particular, is located in Wilder Hall (see also https://www.aps.org/programs/outreach/history/historicsites/nicholshull.cfm) and comprises about 25 regular and research faculty, along with about 60 between graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Dartmouth is located in Hanover, New Hampshire, which borders Vermont on the Connecticut River, surrounded by the White Mountains. Beside easy access to beautiful Northern New England and a wealth of outdoor and recreation opportunities, the town benefits from proximity to the greater Boston and Montreal metropolitan areas (both within three hours drive), as well as regular bus connections to Boston and New York City.
