As part of a major, multi-year initiative to expand research activities in Quantum Information Science across the IU Bloomington campus, the College of Arts and Sciences and the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering invite applications for multiple tenure/tenure-track positions at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank to begin in the Fall of 2024. Appointments will be in one or more departments, including Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science, and Intelligent Systems Engineering.   

We are particularly interested in researchers working in the areas of quantum information theory, simulation, sensing, and materials. Candidates who conduct research that complements our activities in atomic/molecular/optical physics, quantum simulations, quantum algorithms, quantum machine learning, materials chemistry and condensed-matter physics, experimental and computational photonics, and ongoing efforts within the interdepartmental Quantum Science & Engineering Center and multi-institutional Center for Quantum Technologies, will be given preference. We encourage applications from scholars who apply interdisciplinary perspectives across a variety of these domains.  

Responsibilities: Candidates are expected to sustain an active, externally funded research program, engage undergraduate and graduate students through effective teaching, and participate in service to the university and the profession. Candidates should be able to work effectively in a team environment. To advance scholarly innovation and excellence, we especially welcome candidates who will broadly increase the university’s diversity, equity, and inclusion through any of the following: their lived experience, research, teaching, and/or mentoring.  

Qualifications: Applicants should possess a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering (or a related field) and be committed to excellence in scholarship and teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  

Application Procedures: Applicants should apply online and include a letter of application; CV; statements on research and teaching; and a diversity statement that addresses engagement with fostering a diverse and welcoming work environment. Applicants seeking appointment at the Assistant Professor rank should apply at and provide three letters of reference. Applicants seeking appointment with tenure should apply at and be prepared to provide the names of six references. Review of applications will begin immediately and for best consideration, applications should be received by December 15, 2023.

Before any conditional offer of employment with tenure is finalized, candidates will be asked to disclose any pending investigations or previous findings of sexual or professional misconduct. They will also be required to authorize an inquiry by Indiana University Bloomington with all current and former employers along these lines. The relevance of information disclosed or ascertained in the context of this process to a candidate’s eligibility for hire will be evaluated by Indiana University Bloomington on a case-by-case basis. Applicants should be aware, however, that Indiana University Bloomington takes the matters of sexual and professional misconduct very seriously.
