The Université de Sherbrooke was recently awarded a $33,5M grant from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund and $8M from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation to become a world leader in research and education that takes advantage of the unique synergies offered by its existing strengths in quantum materials, quantum information, and quantum engineering. The Physics department at Université de Sherbrooke invites applications for junior or senior Faculty positions with a strong research profile in one or more of these areas or at their interface.

The new professor is expected to be able within one year to teach in French at the undergraduate and/or graduate level and his/her research program, either in experimental or theoretical physics, will reinforce or broaden the research areas already in place in the department. The 14 faculty of the department conduct research in the following areas: Superconductivity, strongly correlated electrons, topologically ordered materials, magnetism, quantum algorithms, quantum error-correction, superconducting qubits, quantum-enhanced metrology, solid-state spin qubits, photonics, and mesoscopic physics. In addition, members of the department maintain strong ties with engineers, whose expertise includes micro-/nano-fabrication, cold electronics, single-electron transistors, packaging and integration. Many faculty are members of the following networks: RQMP (Regroupement Québécois sur les Matériaux de Pointe), INTRIQ (INstitut TRansdisciplinaire d'Informatique Quantique), CIFAR (Quantum Materials and Quantum Information Processing programs). They have access to world-class computing resources and facilities for nanotechnologies, materials and device characterization.
