Argonne invites applications for a scientist to serve as the intellectual lead for a growing program in the area of Quantum Information Sciences. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, experimental efforts in quantum coherent devices and systems, quantum imaging and sensing, quantum computation and communication, and quantum measurement. An appointment will be made with an Argonne division appropriate to the expertise of the scientist at a rank commensurate with their experience, and will also include an affiliation with the Institute for Molecular Engineering.
Successful candidates will be expected to establish and maintain a strong research program at Argonne, including coordination and collaboration with scientists both at Argonne and at the University of Chicago. Joint appointment as a faculty member at the University of Chicago may be considered for appropriate candidates.
PH.D. in a relevant field of study and have an outstanding research record with a minimum of 7 years of experience beyond a Ph.D.
Comprehensive skills and abilities in acquiring and maintaining relationships with multiple funding sources including the Basic Energy Sciences (BES) program and other federal sponsors.
Considerable skill in oral and written communications skills and the ability to work with high level internal and external contacts.

About Argonne National Laboratory
Argonne is a multidisciplinary science and engineering research center, where talented scientists and engineers work together to answer the biggest questions facing humanity, from how to obtain affordable clean energy to protecting ourselves and our environment. Ever since we were born out of the University of Chicago’s work on the Manhattan Project in the 1940s, our goal has been to make an impact — from the atomic to the human to the global scale.
The laboratory works in concert with universities, industry, and other national laboratories on questions and experiments too large for any one institution to do by itself. Through collaborations here and around the world, we strive to discover new ways to develop energy innovations through science, create novel materials molecule-by-molecule, and gain a deeper understanding of our planet, our climate, and the cosmos.
Surrounded by the highest concentration of top-tier research organizations in the world, Argonne leverages its Chicago-area location to lead discovery and to power innovation in a wide range of core scientific capabilities, from high-energy physics and materials science to biology and advanced computer science.
At Argonne, we explore the world together in order to build a better one.
