INT Job Announcements


Postdoctoral Research Associate / INT Fellow (Research Assistant Professor)


The Department of Energy's Institute for Nuclear Theory, on the University of Washington campus, invites applications for one or more postdoctoral positions starting Fall 2018; the position may be either as Research Associate or INT Fellow (Research Assistant Professor). The INT Fellow position may be available in the case of an exceptionally qualified individual. Successful Research Associate and INT Fellow candidates also hold appointments within the Physics Department, with which the INT is affiliated. The INT Fellow position carries the rank of Research Assistant Professor in the Physics Department. University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service. These are full-time, 12-month positions and are not tenure eligible. Applicants for these positions must have a Ph.D. degree, or foreign equivalent, and a strong record of published research in nuclear theory, broadly defined. The INT's local research interests include QCD, lattice gauge theory, quantum computing, many-body theory, nuclear astrophysics, effective field theory, weak interactions and symmetries, relativistic heavy ion physics, high energy nuclear physics, and nuclear structure. Opportunities are available for teaching and graduate student supervision. The Institute hosts approximately 450 visiting scientists each year, representing all areas of nuclear physics as well as its intersections with neighboring subfields. Please apply electronically for either position at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/10114. Applications received by November 15, 2017, will receive full consideration. The University of Washington is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information.

Postdoctoral Research Associate Position in Quantum Computation

The Institute for Nuclear Theory (INT) at the University of Washington anticipates hiring a full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate in algorithm development for quantum computation in quantum many-body systems, to start by January 1, 2018, or earlier if possible. The appointment is expected to extend through August 31, 2020. We are seeking applicants with a strong background in quantum computing algorithms. The successful candidate will be part of a DOE-funded collaboration (Heterogeneous Digital-Analog Quantum Dynamics Simulations (HDAQDS)) including Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the INT, and is expected to focus on developing algorithms and circuits to address quantum many-body systems of importance to nuclear physics research with near-term and future quantum computers. Applicants for this position must have a Ph.D. degree (or foreign equivalent) in Physics, Computer Science, Quantum Information, or Quantum Computing, and ideally a strong record of published research in quantum computing algorithms. The Research Associate will also hold an appointment within the Physics Department of the University of Washington, with which the INT is affiliated. Please apply electronically at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9717. Applications should include a CV, a statement of research interests, and a list of publications; three letters of recommendation should be uploaded separately by the reference writers. Complete applications received by October 8, 2017 will receive full consideration. The University of Washington is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information.
