Quantum Science & Engineering

This position is part of a campus-wide cluster initiative to expand and broaden expertise in quantum science and engineering at UW-Madison. As part of the initiative there are new position vacancies in the Departments of Physics (PVL 96089), this position in Electrical & Computer Engineering (PVL 96215), and Materials Science & Engineering (96210). It is anticipated that successful candidates will develop strong collaborations with existing quantum research at UW Madison, as well as with other hires under this cluster program, and with external research centers.

The position in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering is at the tenure-track level where we seek faculty candidates with expertise in Quantum Systems Engineering. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in topics that include, but are not necessarily limited to, quantum algorithms, quantum system design, quantum circuits, error correction codes, computer-aided design tools, and system software for quantum architectures. The candidate would collaborate campus-wide with ongoing efforts in these and related areas in order to successfully advance the design and architecture of practical future quantum computing systems. Further information regarding this initiative can be found at: facstaff.provost.wisc.edu/cluster-hiring-initiative

Sensors and Sensing

The Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison), in collaboration with the Grainger Institute for Engineering within the College of Engineering, seek candidates for up to two tenure-track faculty positions in the interdisciplinary area of sensors and sensing. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
– Discovery, design, synthesis, and characterization of sensing and responding materials, including nanomaterials, especially soft nanomaterials, thin films, and materials for service in extreme environments.
– Development including theory, design, and fabrication of sensor devices, networks, and systems for physical and biological sensing and/or control applications, with an emphasis on the mechanical, electrical, and electromechanical aspects of sensors and actuators.
– Sensor and sensing technologies for applications in healthcare, autonomous vehicles, energy harvesting and conversion, power systems, and environmental and infrastructure monitoring.

Candidates will be appointed as tenure-track faculty in one of the academic departments listed above and will be appointed as Fellows within the Grainger Institute for Engineering. Candidates with expertise that spans a set of these targeted area and transcends the traditional boundaries of a single department are especially encouraged to apply.
