Apply for the 2024 YQI Fellowship

July 31, 2023

We are welcoming applications from recent PhD graduates to join our laboratories as a YQI fellow!

The Yale Quantum Institute (YQI), founded in 2014, serves as a forum to bring together experimental and theoretical researchers at Yale in the field of quantum information physics, quantum optics and nanophotonics, optomechanics, mesoscopic physics, quantum control, quantum measurement, and quantum many-body physics. It provides a synergistic and collaborative setting for Yale’s cutting edge research in these fields. A report from University Science Strategy Committee identified quantum science as one of Yale’s top priorities and Yale will play a major role in a new, national center for quantum research announced Aug. 26 2020 by the White House and the United States Department of Energy.

In keeping with the mission of the YQI, we are pleased to invite applicants for the YQI postdoctoral fellowships. These Fellowships will support research in the field of quantum science for recent Ph.D. recipients in the group of any of the YQI faculty members. Candidates should have demonstrated excellent research ability in their prior work and exceptional promise for future leadership in their field of interest. Each candidate should clearly indicate which research group (or in special cases, groups) they intend to work with, and are encouraged to contact these YQI Faculty members in advance.

A selection committee will review each application and evaluate the candidates based on the quality of their previous work (thesis and publications) and their potential for original research, within their proposed research group. Finalists will be invited to campus to give a research seminar and interview with YQI faculty members, starting in December 2023.  Preliminary interviews may be conducted online as well.
