The InQubator for Quantum Simulation (IQuS) at the University of Washington anticipates filling one or two fulltime postdoctoral scholar (research associate) positions to start in September 2021. Outstanding candidates in quantum information theory, quantum simulation, lattice gauge theory, nuclear physics or particle physics, broadly defined, are invited to apply. These positions are full-time, 12-month (one-year) appointment, which may be extended (upon successful performance) up to a maximum term of three years, subject to funding and mutual agreement. The Postdoctoral Scholar title is limited to five years, including postdoctoral experience(s) at UW and other institutions.
IQuS consist of four faculty members, S. R. Beane, David Kaplan, Alessandro Roggero and Martin Savage, and students. One of the postdoctoral positions will be supported by the Department of Energy Quantum Science Center, a National Quantum Information Science Research Center. Postdoctoral researchers associated with the Quantum Science Center will engage with a network of universities, national laboratories, and industry to overcome key roadblocks in quantum state resilience, controllability, and ultimately the scalability of quantum technologies to realize the quantum future. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with the Los Alamos Thrust-2 team focused on neutrino dynamics and other quantum-many-body systems.
Postdoctoral scholars are represented by UAW 4121 and are subject to the collective bargaining agreement, unless agreed exclusion criteria apply. For more information, please visit the University of Washington Labor Relations website.
Applicants must have a PhD (or foreign equivalent degree) in quantum physics broadly defined by the date of the appointment.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of future research interests, and three letters of reference. The group values contributions to diversity, equity and inclusion in STEM fields, and to outreach; these can be described in the cover letter. Applications received by December 24, 2020 will receive full consideration. Inquiries should be directed to Professor Martin Savage at email@example.com.

Founded in 1861, the University of Washington is one of the oldest public institutions in the west coast and one of the preeminent research universities in the world. The University of Washington is a multi-campus university comprised of three different campuses: Seattle, Tacoma, and Bothell. The Seattle campus is made up of sixteen schools and colleges that serve students ranging from an undergraduate level to a doctoral level. The university is home to world-class libraries, arts, music, drama, and sports, as well as the highest quality medical care in Washington State and a world-class academic medical center. The teaching and research of the University’s many professional schools provide undergraduate and graduate students the education necessary toward achieving an excellence that will serve the state, the region, and the nation. As part of a large and diverse community, the University of Washington serves more students than any other institution in the Northwest.
