The Department of Physics at Oxford University is appointing two Associate Professors (equivalent to Lecturer) or Professors in Quantum Information with effect from 1 October 2017.

Application Deadline: 20 March 2017

One successful candidate will also be offered a Tutorial Fellowship at Keble College, and one successful candidate will also be offered a Tutorial Fellowship at Worcester College

The Associate Professors will join a vigorous scientific community centred around the NQIT quantum hub on Networked Quantum Information Technologies, a part of the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme. This interdisciplinary research programme spans several university departments and provides ample opportunity to engage with industry and commercialise quantum enhanced technologies. These posts have been created to seize those opportunities and lead the Second Quantum Revolution developing both quantum technologies and underlying quantum science. The postholders will be expected to work closely with colleagues across the Physics Department, and working in the NQIT quantum hub and the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme.

The successful candidates will hold a doctorate in experimental quantum science or technology, or a related subject, and will have a proven record of high quality creative research in quantum technologies at an international level. They will be expected to develop a world-leading research programme, to teach at undergraduate and graduate level, and participate in the administration of Worcester College or of Keble College, as appropriate, and the Physics Department.
