University of Maryland Job Posting Mentions Quantum Computing explicitly!
The University of Maryland at College Park has its job posting up (its been up for a while). You can look at it here. I It lists THREE areas but says that they will take applicants from any area. This is believable since they only listed three. Had they listed (say) seven then I would not believe they are looking at other areas. What is the X such that if they list X then you believe they will take from other areas but if you list X+1 then you don't?
The three areas listed are:
Natural Lang. Proc.
All three of these seem more particular than I usually see in job postings. That is, I've seen things like Systems, Theory, AI. SO- is this unusual? I don't quite know--- I haven't been on the market for a long time.
