The Institute of Physics, University of São Paulo is inviting applications for a permanent faculty position in the field of Quantum Information. This includes quantum computation, quantum communication, quantum metrology, and their correspondent physical implementations, as well as the possible relations of Quantum Information Science with fundamental physics through areas such as holography and topological materials. The Physics Institute intends to boost its presence in Quantum Information Science and this position is a first step in that direction. The applications are open until September 24.
The University of Sao Paulo (USP) is among the top research institutions in Latin America, and the Physics Institute is a dynamic, multi-disciplinary environment.
Candidates are expected to carry out high-level, independent research, to mentor students, teach at the undergraduate and/or graduate level, and to participate in outreach activities.
Compensation is commensurate with research institutions around the world, with a teaching load similar to U.S. and European universities.
