Rice Quantum Initiative

About us

The goal of the Rice Quantum Initiative (RQI) is to enable Rice researchers to stay at the forefront of the quantum revolution while educating the next generation of leaders in quantum technology through the establishment of a world-class research and education program in Quantum information science and technology (QIST) at Rice.

Rice is host to a large number of world-leading researchers in quantum science and technology, especially in quantum simulation, quantum materials, and quantum algorithms. Through the strategic, targeted investment the RQI will further expand Rice’s strong foundation to secure a preeminent position in this field.

Critical components include:

• Targeted approach to faculty hiring,
• Supporting framework to promote QIST at Rice,
• Continued investment in cutting edge infrastructure, and
• Postdoctoral training in this interdisciplinary frontier.
