The Department of Physics
at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York is seeking to fill a tenure-track faculty position in theoretical quantum physics at the level of Assistant or Associate or Full Professor.
The successful candidate is expected to build an active research program in the general interdisciplinary area between quantum physics and information science, such as (but not limited to):
- data science/artificial intelligence-guided quantum materials design and exploration,
- machine learning assisted study of quantum information science, and/or
- quantum-informed machine learning.
The Department of Physics at UB is entering a period of significant growth: since 2022, four tenure-track faculty members (an experimentalist working in MBE growth of quantum materials, an experimentalist working on novel semiconductors, an experimentalist working on quantum optics and neutron scattering, and a theorist working in quantum information processing/many body physics) have started or will start by the spring of 2024. This current position is part of a multi-year, multi-faculty recruitment effort in quantum science and technology supported by the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, the Office of the Provost and the State of New York.
The Department of Physics is a vibrant community with a long tradition and strong commitment to excellence in research, service, and teaching. Research interests within the Department span the traditional disciplines of physics - condensed matter physics, biophysics, high energy physics and cosmology and non-linear dynamics. We benefit greatly from collaborative affiliations with researchers within the College of Arts and Sciences; the Schools of Engineering, Medicine, and Pharmacy; the Centers of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Materials Informatics; and the Center for Computational Research.
