The CUbit Quantum Initiative at the University of Colorado Boulder has appointed physics professor Noah Finkelstein to serve as faculty director of education and workforce. Finkelstein will lead CUbit’s establishment of a coordinated educational approach that cultivates leaders of the next-generation quantum workforce. 

Finkelstein joins Jun Ye (director), Cindy Regal (associate director for science) and Greg Rieker (associate director for engineering) on CUbit’s leadership team and collaborates closely with Heather Lewandowski (professor of physics, JILA Fellow) to advance CUbit’s education mission.

“We are pleased to add Professor Finkelstein to the CUbit team,” said Ye, a professor of physics and JILA Fellow. “His knowledge, experience, strategic approach and passion for education will help us collaborate meaningfully with partners across the campus to leverage our excellence in physics into the quantum engineering space, enabling us to better educate quantum scientists and train quantum engineers for the future quantum workforce.”
