Faculty Positions

Assistant/Associate Professor Quantum Information Science - Math/Computer Science

The Departments of Mathematics and Computer Science in the College of Science at Purdue University invite applications for up to five positions in Quantum Information Science (QIS) to begin August 2020. These positions will be at the assistant/associate professor level based on scholarly record. When appropriate, successful candidates may be considered for joint and interdisciplinary appointments across the College. QIS is at the frontier of several traditional research disciplines including applied math and computer science, information theory, condensed matter physics, atomic, molecular, and optical physics, and chemistry. QIS strives to harness the unusual quantum mechanical properties of superposition and entanglement to provide breakthrough advances for computing, secure communications, and novel device functionalities. As such, QIS is part of a large-scale interdisciplinary hiring effort across key strategic areas in the College of Science—Purdue’s second-largest college, comprising the physical, computing, and life sciences—these positions come at a time when the College is under new leadership and with multiple commitments of significant investment.
