Professor in Quantum Technology at the University of Glasgow

The University of Glasgow is seeking to appoint a Professor to provide leadership within the Centre for Quantum Technology to establish the University of Glasgow as an internationally recognised centre of excellence in quantum technology, from fundamental understanding through to translating world-changing technologies to generate societal and/or industrial impact.

The Centre at the University of Glasgow brings together physicists, engineers and computer scientists to tackle cutting-edge scientific and technological research and innovation in the area of Quantum Technology. This allows the Centre to play a fundamental role in the UK National Quantum Technology Programme; leading QuantIC, the UK Quantum Technology Hub in Imaging and participating in all four Quantum Technology Hubs in the UK programme. In playing this role Glasgow draws upon its world class facilities in the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre.

The position requires an individual with a track record on delivering world class research in Quantum Technologies to develop and expand on existing strengths in the Centre. The post holder will establish a new research group in computationally assisted quantum imaging/sensing working at the interface of hardware and algorithm design, but other areas relating to our quantum research at the University of Glasgow will also be considered.
