Core Programs

The Yale Quantum Institute is running a series of programs pursuant to its mission.

venue for quantum information events

The Institute is the hosting venue for all related seminars, presentations, group meetings and other events in the field of quantum information physics and science. Among other events, YQI will host the 2017 Yale Science and Engineering Forum and the Office of Naval Research Program Review and Workshop. 17 Hillhouse has an open-door policy and cordially welcomes interested students and staff from Yale or other institutions to come attend its events.

visitors program

The Yale Quantum Institute hosts and partially funds world leaders in quantum information science for sabbatical visits to Yale lasting from three to twelve months. These visiting scientists in residence, will be granted a large private office where they can focus on their research in close proximity to YQI’s professors and students at the prestigious Hillhouse Avenue, described as the most beautiful street in America by both Mark Twain and Charles Dickens

seminar & colloquia series

During the academic year, the institute is hosting a series of seminars and colloquia from national and internationals experts in the field of quantum information physics, quantum control, quantum measurement, and quantum many-body physics.

The talks are attended by a very diverse population distributed from sophomore undergraduates interested in quantum information to professors teaching that subject at the graduate level. The duration of the talk is one hour including questions. A light lunch served before hand.

This series has blue flyers.

networking & career development series

A second series of talks is curated by YQI to help students and postdocs with career development, job search and networking. This series includes a wide array of speakers (alumni, scientists, industry leaders, artists…) who all started as graduate students and will be talking about their career choices and experiences. The talks and the discussion following them is a great opportunity for attendees to build a solid network and have all their questions answered.

This series has green flyers.

students’ happy science hours (shsh)

Students’ happy science hours offer the opportunity for students to meet with world-renowned quantum experts who come to YQI to give talks or for sabbatical. SHSH are a great way to network and have a privileged relationship with the speakers thanks to the informal setting in small groups around snacks and refreshments. The conversation, moderated by a host who changes every time depending their interests, can flow from specific questions about the speakers’ work to their experience and path from graduate student to where they are today, but also to completely unrelated sciences news or events.

postdoctoral fellowship

In 2017, the Quantum Institute will develop an attractive and highly competitive postdoctoral program to attract the best early career scientists to Yale.

More information will follow soon.
