Applications are invited for an Intelligence Community postdoc fellowship ( http://www.icpostdoc.org ) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. The candidate must be a U.S. citizen with a Ph.D. in condensed matter theory or a related field, and should have a background in quantum information. The project involves the development of new and scalable semiconductor architectures for quantum computation.
The University of Wisconsin has a strong theoretical program in applied quantum computation. Postdocs are encouraged to interact closely with experimental qubit programs in silicon quantum dots ( http://qc.physics.wisc.edu/silicon.html ), as well as Josephson junctions ( http://home.physics.wisc.edu/~rfmcdermott ) and neutral atoms ( http://hexagon.physics.wisc.edu ). The project is in collaboration with the Laboratory for Physical Sciences ( http://www.lps.umd.edu ), on the campus of the University of Maryland, College Park.
The fellowship position is for two years, with a possible extension to three years. The salary is $52k/year. Please send a CV with reference contact information to Mark Friesen at . Candidates will be considered until the position is filled.
