CQIQC Postdoctoral Fellowships

CQIQC Post-Doctoral Fellowship 2021: Application deadline: 31 March 2021

Prize postdoctoral fellowships in Quantum Information & Control at the University of Toronto are awarded on a competitive basis. Each fellow will have the opportunity to work within U of T's Center for Quantum Information and Quantum Control (see http://cqiqc.physics.utoronto.ca for more information), with a broad and vibrant group of researchers spanning the Departments of Physics, Chemistry, and Electrical & Computer Engineering. Highly qualified applicants with a Ph.D. in any area related to quantum information or control will be considered. Applications will be considered either to work with an existing group in CQIQC or to pursue an independent research proposal, but preference will be given to proposals which have the possibility of building on the existing strengths in CQIQC.

Visiting Scientists

Distinguished visitors sponsored by two or more CQIQC faculty members can be partly supported by CQIQC (typically at the level of $1000–$4000). Applications can be made anytime, and decisions will be announced biannually. Usually these awards are for our external affiliates. Application: A one-page (max.) description of the benefits to CQIQC, particularly to student training, and a proposed budget.
