Sydney Quantum academy. NSW government-supported
four-university consortium
(Posted, December 2019)


Please contact Prof. Daniel Terno at daniel.terno@mq.edu.au for sponsorship on this application:

https://sydneyquantum.org/scholarships/fellowships

Applications are encouraged from any research area within the quantum sciences, with recipients able and encouraged to access leading quantum research groups across The University of Sydney, UNSW Sydney, University of Technology Sydney and Macquarie University, as well as masterclasses and other professional development and industry engagement opportunities offered by the SQA.

The successful candidates will be offered a three-year research focused academic appointment at $105,000 to $115,000 per annum AUD (depending on experience and track record) plus a generous contribution to superannuation at one of the partner universities. In addition, the fellow will receive research support and career development funding of up to $30,000 per annum AUD.

Applicants must obtain the endorsement of a school at one of the universities who will employ the successful candidates and provide the required administration and infrastructure. Strong preference will be given to applicants seeking to join the university from another organisation in Australia or from overseas.

Please note that applicants will be subject to the policies and terms and conditions of the university where the student is enrolled.

The applications will be reviewed, ranked and selected by the SQA Selection Committee comprising at least one representative of each university. The committee meets twice per year. Contact us if you would like to know more or express interest.

Applications open Wednesday 6 November and close at 19 January 2020 (AEST).



Faculty Permanent Position at Spanish National Research Council (CSIC)
(Posted October 2019)


The Spanish Research Council CSIC is offering an intermediate rank permanent position on Quantum Technologies (theory or  experiments), with various possible destinations including  IFT,
IMB-CNM, ICMA, ICMM, ICMAB, and IFF.

The announcement is in Nature Jobs



It is a pre-call before the final position is opened for the most interesting profiles. CSIC seeks senior researchers (but not too senior) with the potential to create and lead a group on a research line that is complementary to the ones we currently pursue, but centered on Quantum Technologies.

The candidate would become part of the CSIC Platform on Quantum Technologies (https://qst.csic.es), joining a dynamic community of highly motivated colleagues, working to consolidate this field in the
Research Council, train new talent and, of course, do excellent research.
