William Eckhardt Research Center, 5640 S Ellis Ave, Chicago, IL 60637

The annual Chicago Quantum Recruiting Forum brings together the rising generation of quantum scientists and engineers. This forum is an outstanding opportunity for students and trainees across the STEM disciplines interested in pursuing quantum information through physics, computing, or engineering to catalyze their careers. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with one another as well as leaders in the field, exploring quantum careers and academic pathways through an experiential immersion in quantum innovation.

Participation is free and open to all trainees, including university students and postdocs in the Midwest, faculty from the Chicago Quantum Exchange (CQE), university partners, and any companies interested in hiring quantum-trained talent.
