Multiple QIS Faculty Positions at UIUC
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites applications for one or more full-time faculty positions in Quantum Information Science (QIS), including both theory and experiment, in the departments of Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Physics, and Mathematics. QIS is strongly supported at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, with a 15M investment in the […]
Illinois Quantum Computing Summer School (Register Now)
In partnership with the Discovery Partners Institute, we will be hosting a quantum computing school in downtown Chicago, June 17-20. Registration is free, but spots are limited. The school will be aimed at students, post-docs, and faculty with no prior research experience in quantum information. Travel grants are available for students. Check out the website […]
Announcing the Illinois Quantum Information Science and Technology center (IQUIST)
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has announced a new $15M investment in quantum information science and engineering. The Illinois Quantum Information Science and Technology center (IQUIST) is now launching at the University of Illinois, which will include a major hiring initiative, broadened research activities, and new educational opportunities all in the area of quantum information […]
New Bounds on Instantaneous Nonlocal Computation
Replacing Interaction with Entanglement Alvin and I have recently completed a study of instantaneous nonlocal computation. This is a task – with a somewhat misleading name – that involves simulating a nonlocal quantum gate using pre-shared entanglement and non-interactive entanglement. One prominent application of this task is in quantum position verification, where the spatial coordinates […]
Illinois is now hiring in quantum!!
The ECE, Physics and CS departments are all conducting open rank faculty searches. Links to the formal job announcements are below. https://ece.illinois.edu/about/jobs/faculty-positions.asp https://physics.illinois.edu/people/job-openings.asp https://cs.illinois.edu/about-us/faculty-positions We are encouraging strong researchers in quantum information science to apply. Qualified senior candidates may also be considered for tenured full professor positions as part of the Grainger Engineering Breakthroughs Initiative, […]
The Zero-Error Entanglement Cost is Highly Non-Additive
Buy one, get \(n-1\) free! Qiuling and I have recently posted a paper on the arXiv that studies the zero-error entanglement cost its regularized version for maximally correlated bipartite states. Using techniques from the resource theory of coherence, we show that it is possible to generate \(n\) copies of certain entangled states using the same […]
Positions are now available in my group.
Interesting problems are ready to be solved and exciting science is waiting to be discovered. Opportunities are available for undergraduate, MS and PhD students. Contact me to get entangled!
