The Quantum Information and Device Theory group of Charles Tahan at the Laboratory for Physical Sciences (LPS) and the Quantum Information and Many-Body Physics group of Brian Swingle at the University of Maryland (UMD) are collaborating to explore the possible quantum advantage offered by near-term quantum systems from quantum computers with dozens or hundreds of qubits to analog quantum systems of similar size to tensor-network inspired machine learning.

Applications are invited for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Montclair State. Priority will be given to a researcher who can carry out experimental research in quantum information science/quantum computing. Other fields of experimental physics may also be considered, especially atomic, nuclear, or particle physics. The applicant should be able to carry out an externally-funded research program in experimental physics that can involve undergraduate students on the Montclair State campus.

There exists a prestigious and well-funded PhD scholarship for a student to undertake research on the theory of acoustic modes interacting with superconducting qubits at the University of New South Wales, Canberra, Australia. The project will be undertaken under the supervision of Dr Matt Woolley, Dr David Powell, and A/Prof Andrey Miroshnichenko. The scholarship includes a stipend of \$AU41,209 per annum for four years, a travel allowance of up to \$AU10,000 per annum, and covers all tuition fees.
