Faculty Openings in Quantum Photonics

Purdue University’s College of Engineering and College of Science have identified quantum photonics as a major thrust for cross-disciplinary education and research, including theory, modeling and experiment, and are accepting applications for a tenured or tenure track faculty position in this area at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor level. Recently, conceptual and technical advances have pointed to the beginning of a new era for the physical, chemical, and information sciences and related technologies – the era of Quantum Science and Engineering. Quantum photonics is a center stage in this new emerging field, combining photonic and quantum technologies and cutting across the areas of computer science, theoretical and experimental physics, chemistry, material science and device engineering. Purdue University has embarked on a new quantum photonics initiative to exploit optical and quantum technologies that are expected to have transformative impact on our society, by enabling quantum computation and communication, new approaches to metrology and quantum sensing, as well as novel materials that are designed and engineered at the quantum level, quantum metamaterials, with unique properties unattainable in natural materials. This initiative will build on the existing strengths and leverage the nanotechnology, quantum science and engineering, and photonics capabilities of both Purdue Colleges and Purdue’s Discovery and Research Parks.
