(Guest post by Andrew Childs who is now at the Univ of MD at College Park)
We have recently launched a new Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science (QuICS) at the University of Maryland. This center is a partnership
with the National Institute of Standards and Technology, with the support and participation of the Research Directorate of the National Security Agency/Central Security Service. QuICS will foster research on quantum information and computation.
We are pleased to announce opportunities for Hartree Postdoctoral Fellowships
(deadline: December 30, 2014) and Lanczos Graduate Fellowships. Outstanding postdoctoral and graduate researchers with an interest in quantum information processing are encouraged to apply.
QuICS complements a strong program in quantum physics research at the Joint Quantum Institute. Maryland is also home to a new Quantum Engineering Center.
It's an exciting time for quantum information here.
