Open positions
Our group currently has a postdoc opening. Contact Vadim directly if interested.

If you already have a scholarship and want to join our group, please contact Vadim.

If you don’t have a scholarship: Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) – and our group – has PhD and Master’s admission open year-round. Candidates for grad positions at IQC have to complete a formal application to one of graduate programs in quantum information at the University of Waterloo. You can also apply to supplementary CryptoWorks21 cryptography- and business-skills training program. While you are welcome to contact professors directly, the formal application is necessary. Once your application is complete, it will be checked by the admission committee and become visible to many professors at IQC. These positions come with a scholarship, if some professor hires you.
