The Departments of Computer Science and Electrical & Computer Engineering are seeking to fill a joint tenure-track faculty position in quantum computing beginning in August 2021. The position is made possible through an NSF Quantum Computing & Information Science Faculty Fellow Grant. It is anticipated that hiring will be at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank.
The Department of Computer Science, part of NC State’s College of Engineering, is one of the largest and oldest in the country. Research expenditures, national ranking, and recognition have been growing steadily. For example, we have one of the largest concentrations of prestigious NSF Early Career Award winners (30 of our current or former faculty are recipients.) The ECE Department is one of the top 10 suppliers of ECE talent at the BS level in the US, and also ranks in the top 10 public ECE Departments in total annual research expenditures (ASEE). The CSC and ECE departments have distinguished faculties, including a number of AAAI Fellows, ACM Fellows, and IEEE Fellows. The departments are located in close proximity in state-of-the-art facilities on NC State’s Centennial Campus.
NC State University is located in the technology-rich Research Triangle metropolitan area, and faculty members collaborate routinely with local industry. The Research Triangle area is frequently recognized in nationwide surveys as one of the best places to live in the U.S. We enjoy outstanding public schools, affordable housing, and great weather, all in the proximity of the mountains and the seashore.Essential Job Duties
Candidates in all areas of quantum computing will be considered, with particular emphasis on topics synergistic with the IBM Q Hub at NC State, http://quantum.ncsu.edu, and on candidates whose interests contribute to a rapidly-growing multi-disciplinary quantum community across the NC State campus.

Experience or interest in other quantum computing technologies would also be welcome.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, advise undergraduate, MS, PhD, and post-doctoral researchers, obtain funding to support their group’s research activities, and publish research results in top journals and conferences.
