Postdoctoral positions are available in the research groups of Sergey Frolov (University of Pittsburgh), Michael Hatridge (University of Pittsburgh) and Benjamin Hunt (Carnegie Mellon University).

Postdoctoral associates will collaborate within a vibrant quantum research cluster which also includes theory groups. Projects available immediately include:

1) investigation of topological quantum spin liquids in van der Waals heterostructures;

2) discovery of new materials for quantum computing and demonstration of new qubits;

3) definitive identification of Majorana modes in hybrid nanodevices;

4) design of new parametrically driven two qubit gates for superconducting qubits;

5) construction and operation of modular quantum computers.

University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, located side-by-side in Pittsburgh, PA, America’s most livable city, offer state-of-the-art nanofabrication, materials characterization and cryogenic measurement facilities and highly interconnected and collaborative laboratories for quantum research.

Interested candidates should first indicate their interest by emailing quantum.postdoc.cluster@gmail.com . Consideration will begin immediately and continue until all positions are filled.

PhD Students:

University of Pittsburgh graduate school admission process must be followed. Namely, candidates submit a graduate school application (typical deadline is in January of each year). Successful candidates begin their MS/PhD program in the Fall of that year.


University of Pittsburgh offers graduate fellowships to outstanding candidates on a competitive basis. Candidates interested in working in Frolov lab are encouraged to contact Sergey and discuss their interests prior to submitting a graduate school application.

Undergraduate Students:

Directed Study or summer internship projects can be defined throughout the academic year upon discussion with Professor Frolov. A minimum commitment of 3 months and 10 hours per week is recommended.
