Job Opportunities

Faculty Positions

The Department of Applied Physics at Yale University and Yale Quantum Institute invite applications for a faculty appointment in the area of theoretical quantum information science. Applications will be considered at the Assistant Professor level. 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; we are conducting at least four current searches in this broad area across a range of departments, and expect to conduct additional searches in this area in future years.

Postdoctoral Fellow at the Yale Quantum Institute

The Yale Quantum Institute (YQI), founded in 2014, serves as a forum to bring together experimental and theoretical researchers at Yale in the field of quantum information physics, quantum optics and nanophotonics, optomechanics, mesoscopic physics, quantum control, quantum measurement, and quantum many-body physics. It provides a synergistic and collaborative setting for Yale’s cutting edge research in these fields. A recent report from University Science Strategy Committee identified quantum science as one of Yale’s top priorities and recommends the expansion of existing Yale quantum efforts at a scale that will attract international attention and place Yale in a position of broad intellectual leadership.

In keeping with the mission of the YQI, we are pleased to invite applicants for the YQI postdoctoral fellowships. These Fellowships will support research in the field of quantum science for recent Ph.D. recipients in the group of any of the YQI faculty members. For more details, click here.
