Associate Editor, Quantum Information
Who we are:
The American Physical Society (APS) is a nonprofit membership organization working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics through its outstanding research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy, and international activities. APS represents more than 50,000 members, including physicists in academia, national laboratories, and industry in the United States and throughout the world.
The Associate Editor will decide on publishing the most exciting and consequential results in quantum science and technologies, conducting a thorough and high-quality peer-review process. For that, we seek a talented candidate with deep research experience in quantum information at the postdoctoral level and outstanding communication skills. A successful candidate will work with the editorial team of PRX Quantum, interacting with top leaders in the field. The Associate Editor will also be responsible for engaging and building connections with scientists from this highly multidisciplinary research community. Expertise in quantum computing and algorithms is a plus.
APS has a “remote first” concept that promotes equal treatment and equal access within the United States, independent of physical work location, with a majority of staff working primarily from remote work locations. APS values diversity and welcomes candidates from a variety of backgrounds. APS offers a dynamic work environment with an outstanding total compensation package, including salary, outstanding benefits, and excellent paid time off.
A PhD is required, in Physics, Engineering, or Computer Science. Postdoctoral experience is required.
This role involves occasional travel, approximately up to 10%, for meetings with APS staff, departmental gatherings, and interactions with colleagues in the Long Island, NY, Washington, DC and College Park, MD areas. Additionally, the position requires world-wide travel to attend conferences and events, and to interact with researchers at their institutions and universities.
The salary range for this position takes into account various factors influencing compensation decisions, such as skill sets, experience, training, and other business and organizational requirements. The salary listed within the specified ranges considers relevant experience. Our compensation philosophy at APS aims to maintain salaries at the midpoint of the market. As a result, we typically hire within the target starting range. Exceptional, rare cases may merit reviews above target starting range for specialized or niche skills aligned with strategic operational goals.
Hiring Range: $77,985/year - $106,254/year (USD)
Target Starting Range: $77,985/year - $86,758/year (USD)
Our Editorial Offices are located on Long Island. We are operational in most US states. The Editorial Department allows flexible work hours; responsiveness is required, however, during the core 9 am to 5pm Eastern Standard Time workday. The successful candidate will join a collaborative international team of editors across the Physical Review journals.
