Apply by December 1, 2020

In alignment with ongoing efforts to position the University of Washington and the Pacific Northwest as a leader in the nascent field of quantum-enabled technologies over the next few years, the University of Washington Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (UW ECE) invites interested and qualified individuals to apply for two tenure-track faculty positions with expertise in Quantum Information Science and Technology (QIST) at the rank of assistant professor.

Candidates making connections between QIST and data science, circuits, devices, controls, computer engineering, information theory, and other existing efforts in the ECE department are particularly encouraged to apply, but all areas of QIST will be considered. The positions are multi-year appointments with nine-month service periods with an anticipated start date of September 1, 2021. Applications must be submitted by December 1, to receive full consideration.

UW ECE offers an innovative, collaborative, and inclusive environment in which our faculty and students succeed at finding impactful solutions to today’s challenges. The Seattle area is particularly attractive given the presence of significant industrial research laboratories, top technology companies, as well as a vibrant technology-driven entrepreneurial community that further enhances the intellectual atmosphere. We look forward to learning how the applicants’ experience or future plans for teaching, research, and service would support our commitment to diversity and inclusion.
