Quantum CT

QuantumCT is a joint initiative between Yale University and University of Connecticut working hand-in-hand to advance Connecticut’s position as a center of excellence in quantum, and accelerate the adoption of quantum technologies in Connecticut and beyond. The QuantumCT Team is collaborating with broad coalition of partners from business, academia, government, the nonprofit and innovation community to lay the groundwork for expansive, equitable economic development — promising to fundamentally change how we live, work, and communicate with each other.

Co-design Center for Quantum Advantage

The new Co-design Center for Quantum Advantage (C2QA), led by Brookhaven National Laboratory, launches with funding of $115 million over five years. It is one of five National Quantum Information Science Research Centers announced by the government. Steven Girvin, the Eugene Higgins Professor of Physics at Yale, will serve as director of C2QA and have a dual appointment at Yale and Brookhaven’s Energy and Photon Sciences Directorate.

Quantum Week at Yale - April 13 - 19, 2024

A full week of quantum events! YQI has partnered with departments and centers across campus to bring you quantum events all week long to share our excitement for quantum science! Events are open to all, and do not require any previous knowledge of quantum physics.

Study and Work in Quantum Sciences and Information at Yale

Undergraduate Students

During the summer, some of the research groups hire Yale undergraduate students for short research projects. These projects can be extended to one or two semesters depending on interest and time commitment. Reach out to the Principal Investigator of the research group of your choice.

Graduate Students

The Principal Investigators of quantum research groups are regularly looking for new graduate students. Admission to our graduate programs is open to students with a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in physics, applied physics, chemistry, and materials science, or closely related areas of engineering. For details on the general Yale application process, please consult the Yale Graduate School website.

Postdoctoral Associates

Applications accepted on a continuous basis. Reach out to the Principal Investigator of the research group of your choice.
Additionally, the Yale Quantum Institute invites applicants for the YQI postdoctoral fellowships which will support research in the field of quantum science for recent Ph.D. recipients in the group of any of the YQI faculty members

Faculty members

There is currently a search for a tenured Associate Professor/Full Professor in Experimental Quantum Information Science. Visit the job page for more information.
