Junior and Senior Principal Investigators at QuSoft, Amsterdam

QuSoft is the new Dutch research Center for Quantum Software that was recently launched jointly by the University of Amsterdam (UvA), the Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica (Center for Mathematics and Computer Science, CWI) and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU). Its mission is to develop new protocols, algorithms and applications that can be run on small and medium-sized prototypes of a quantum computer. The researchers at QuSoft develop software and applications that exploit the extraordinary power of quantum computers based on their quantum mechanical properties such as superposition, interference and entanglement. That requires fundamentally different techniques and approaches from those used to develop conventional software.

QuSoft wishes to recruit two principal investigators, one at junior faculty (tenure track) level and the other at the level of associate or full professor. The search focusses on all four QuSoft research groups, but welcomes applications from the whole area of quantum information. The new QuSoft faculty will be part of the "core" of the QuSoft center and we expect that they take on an active role in shaping and developing the center. Both positions have important teaching components within the UvA--first and foremost in specialized courses in the QuSoft subject area, but also in the wider context of the educational programs in Computer Science, Physics and Mathematics at the UvA's Science faculty.

The new QuSoft faculty members will be employed by the UvA, but will be expected to spend most of their time at the QuSoft Center, which is presently housed by the CWI. The senior position that is available is an associate or full professorship with the UvA.

The closing date for applications is 1 September 2016. For more information, and to apply online, go to http://www.qusoft.org/jobs/.
