Jobs & Opportunities

QuantumX maintains a list of jobs and opportunities that are relevant for UW students interested in quantum-enabled technologies. Opportunities on this page will be listed for six months. Contact if you would like to share an opportunity with our community.


The Global Quantum Leap Program
Students should have previous lab research experience (such as an REU program). A strong background in quantum physics and/or materials science is needed for these programs.  Each exchange lasts approximately 10-12 weeks with travel, housing, and stipend provided by the GQL. Students will be able to choose from a group of projects when they apply and will work in research groups at their host institution. Learn more and apply.

Northwestern University Professor in Quantum Information
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northwestern University is seeking outstanding candidates who are excited by the opportunity to help build the future of quantum information at a world-class university. Learn more and apply.

Student Opportunities

NSF/DOE Quantum Science Summer School
The NSF/DOE Quantum Science Summer School is a program dedicated to the education of graduate students and postdocs in the fields of condensed matter physics, materials science, and disciplines of quantum science in engineering, chemistry, and related fields. The annual summer school focuses on key topics of interest in quantum science and their applications to new technologies in academic and industrial contexts. The goal is to provide expert training to participants in these subfields by experts in the field in an intensive two week format. Learn more and apply

Intelligence Community Fellowships
The Intelligence Community (IC) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program offers scientists and engineers from a wide variety of disciplines unique opportunities to conduct research in a wide range of topics relevant to the Intelligence Community. The research is conducted by the Postdocs, in partnership with a Research Advisor while also collaborating with an advisor from the Intelligence Community. In partnership with the Research Advisor, the Postdoc composes and submits a technical proposal that responds to a current research opportunity. U.S. citizens and recent Ph.D. graduates or doctoral students who will soon complete their degrees are invited to apply.
