Department of Physics - Theoretical Quantum information Science - Open Rank Faculty Position: The Department of Physics at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign seeks highly qualified candidates to fill a full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty position at any rank. Exceptional scientists from all subfields of theoretical quantum information science are encouraged to apply, particularly those with overlap in atomic, molecular, optical physics and/or condensed matter. The Department of Physics is committed to building a culturally diverse educational environment, with a focus on diversifying the faculty. We are seeking faculty who can teach in these and other areas while contributing to the diversity and excellence in our programs and courses through their research, teaching and service. Senior and mid-career faculty are encouraged to apply in addition to early-career scientists. Applications will be evaluated as received, and interviews may take place during the application period, but no decisions will be made until after November 15, 2022. Applications received after that date may be considered until the position is filled. A start date is expected in the fall of 2023; however, this is negotiable.

Postdoctoral Scholars Program

The postdoctoral scholar program supports outstanding scientists and offers a unique opportunity for selected scholars to engage in an interdisciplinary research fellowship at the Illinois Quantum Information Science and Technology Center.
