General Lab Information


The Quantum Information Science Career Fair, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science's National Quantum Information Science (QIS) Research Centers, aims to bring awareness to two- and four-year college and graduate students and post-doc to the wide range of QIS careers they can pursue—from technical and scientific roles to non-STEM roles that facilitate research and bring awareness to the field, like marketing and human resources.

Participants will hear from experts in their field, get their questions answered, build their professional networks, and meet one-on-one with potential employers. The event will showcase opportunities available within the Centers, national laboratories, academic institutions, and industry.

National Quantum Information Research Centers

National Quantum Information Science Research Centers (NQISRCs) funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science are accelerating transformational advances in basic science and quantum-based technologies needed to assure continued U.S. leadership in quantum information science. The NQISRCs are driving the growth of the nation’s quantum workforce.

Through workshops, internships, apprenticeships, fellowships, and postdoctoral and visiting-faculty appointments, the centers recruit and train tomorrow’s quantum scientists, engineers, and technicians. By actively engaging students and young researchers in world-leading R&D, the centers are helping ensure a vibrant quantum community in the U.S. for decades to come.
