Call for Applications: Participants in Research Pod in Quantum Computing

The Simons Institute’s Research Pod in Quantum Computing invites applications for postdoctoral fellows and visiting research scientists for the 2022–23 academic year. 

Quantum Pod Opportunities
In the wake of the National Quantum Initiative, the Simons Institute’s Research Pod in Quantum Computing brings together researchers from computer science, physics, chemistry, and mathematics to study pressing issues in quantum algorithms, complexity theory, error correction, and near-term quantum devices. This research pod facilitates deep interactions between quantum computing and the rest of theoretical computer science and will help introduce and welcome the larger TCS community into quantum computing research issues. This initiative is led by Simons Institute Research Director for Quantum Computing Umesh Vazirani and is supported in part by the Department of Energy, via the newly established Quantum Systems Accelerator (QSA), and by the National Science Foundation, via the Quantum Leap Challenge Institutes (QLCI) award. 

How to apply to join the Quantum Pod: Interested candidates should follow the instructions for the call for applications for postdoctoral researchers or visiting research scientists. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. The first review date for postdoctoral fellows was December 15, 2021.
