This job was posted by https://illinoisjoblink.illinois.gov : For more information, please see: https://illinoisjoblink.illinois.gov/jobs/11881462 Description

The Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) is a unique interdisciplinary school launched by the University of Chicago in 2011 with the aim of translating molecular and quantum science into technological solutions with potential societal impact in health and immunology, energy/water/materials, environmental sustainability, and quantum information technology.

PME is also affiliated with Argonne National Laboratory, an independent unit within the university, and joint appointment is encouraged when appropriate.


We invite applications at the ranks of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Professor. Before the start of employment, qualified applicants must hold a doctoral degree or equivalent in a field related to theoretical and/or computational quantum engineering, or related disciplines. They must also have a strong record of independent research in theoretical quantum science and engineering. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) quantum information, quantum communication, quantum sensing, quantum error correction, quantum mechanical materials modeling, quantum optics and quantum simulation (including simulation on classical and quantum computers).

Candidates for Associate or Full Professor must have evidence of leadership in their field and an outstanding track record of independent research, allowing them to qualify for appointment as a tenured professor in the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (or jointly with another department in the University). All successful candidates will be expected to establish and maintain a robust research program and teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2022.
