and enough detail to allow the program committee to assess the
merits of the work. Submission of substantial albeit partial
results of work in progress is encouraged.
– Extended abstracts describing work submitted/published elsewhere
will also be considered, provided the work is recent and relevant
to the conference. These consist of a 3 page description and should

The Theoretical Physics Department at Fermilab is seeking candidates for one Associate Scientist position in the area of theoretical quantum information science (QIS), working at its interface with fundamental physics and quantum field theory. This position is for a five-year term, starting in 2019. It is equivalent to a tenure-track faculty position at a university having the possibility of leading to an appointment without time limit. An appointment at the level of Scientist or Senior Scientist, equivalent to a tenured Associate Professor or Full Professor at a university, is open for consideration depending on the candidate’s expertise. We are seeking a candidate with a doctorate in theoretical physics who has demonstrated exceptional creativity and a high level of competence in his/her research. The job listing is here:
QIS is a growing research direction for the Fermilab theoretical physics department, which has an existing strong research program in Lattice QCD, Perturbative QCD, Neutrino Physics, Dark Matter and physics beyond the standard model. The Theory QIS initiative at Fermilab is part of a new collaboration with the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter at Caltech and the Institute for Nuclear Theory at the University of Washington. Topics of interest include:
* Quantum simulation of quantum field theories describing strongly coupled systems.
* Tensor networks, their utility for simulation and their connections to quantum gravity.
* Quantum algorithms for traditional HEP computational problems.
* Applying quantum technologies and quantum sensors to probe fundamental physics.
The successful candidate will play a central role in the newly launched Fermilab Quantum Science Program (https://qis.fnal.gov/). This program includes a variety of experimental and theoretical research directions carried out in synergy with academic and industry partners. In addition to activities in the Theoretical Physics Department, examples of synergistic activities include SRF cavities for quantum computing, quantum teleportation experiments, the use of qubits as quantum sensors for dark matter searches, as well as connections between Fermilab’s Scientific computing division and quantum computing industry partners.
Current members of the Theoretical Physics Department are William Bardeen, John Campbell, Marcela Carena, Bogdan Dobrescu, Estia Eichten, Patrick Fox, Walter Giele, Roni Harnik, Christopher Hill, Andreas Kronfeld, Paul Mackenzie, Pedro Machado, Stephen Parke, Chris Quigg and Ruth Van de Water. Further details about the Theory Department are posted at: http://theory.fnal.gov/.
There is also an opening for a postdoc in QIS at Fermilab. See:
