Job Description:

The Department of Physics at the University of Virginia invites applicants for a post-doctoral research associate position to work in quantum optics and quantum information.

The successful candidate will join the Quantum Fields and Quantum Information group, under the direction of Prof. Olivier Pfister, and will conduct experimental research (and, possibly, theoretical research) on the implementation of quantum computing using continuous-variable quantum optics.

The successful candidate will be expected to work independently and in teams, assisting with advising graduate students, depending on the project.

QUALIFCATION REQUIREMENTS: Candidates must have a PhD degree in experimental Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics by the appointment start date. Strong knowledge of nonlinear optics, quantum optics, and quantum information is required. Experience with continuous-variable quantum information is a definite plus but is not required.

Please note that multiple documents can be uploaded in the box.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Review of applications will begin on January 1, 2021, but the position will remain open until filled. The University will perform background checks on all new hires prior to employment.

This is a one-year appointment; however, appointment may be renewed for an additional two, one-year increments, contingent upon available funding and satisfactory performance.

COVID Vaccination Requirement

The University of Virginia expects all current and new employees (UVA Health System and Academic), to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

If hired to work within the University Health System, you will be required to provide proof of vaccination or be willing to receive the vaccination. Employees may request a medical or religious exemption from vaccination.

If hired to work on the Academic side of the University, excluding the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, UPG, and the Health Systems Library, you will be required to provide proof of vaccination or be willing to submit to mandatory, weekly prevalence testing. Employees that are working 100% remotely will not be subject to weekly prevalence testing; however, if the employee works on UVA Grounds (including the Medical Center) even intermittently, then they are required to be tested for COVID-19 once per week on an indefinite basis and follow masking mandates.

NOTE: Some medical and safety-sensitive positions require vaccination and are not eligible for an exemption. For more information on how the vaccination and testing requirements will apply to you at your work location, see the UVA New Hire Vaccination Requirements webpage.

The University of Virginia, including the UVA Health System which represents the UVA Medical Center, Schools of Medicine and Nursing, UVA Physician's Group and the Claude Moore Health Sciences Library, are fundamentally committed to the diversity of our faculty and staff. We believe diversity is excellence expressing itself through every person's perspectives and lived experiences. We are equal opportunity and affirmative action employers. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, color, disability, gender identity or expression, marital status, national or ethnic origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, veteran status, and family medical or genetic information.
