Our colleague Jason Chang moves on to a new carrier at LinkedIn as of November 14th. We all will miss him and wish him the best of luck in his latest endeavor. Here is a message from Jason:

It was truly a pleasure to be part of iTHEMS.
I have matured so much during this time through all the opportunities that have been made available to me because of how much iTHEMS has supported me in the decisions that I made.
I certainly will miss everyone as well.
I will move on to a data science position at LinkedIn.
If anyone from iTHEMS is curious or has interest in transitioning to some industry position especially around the Bay Area, feel free to reach out to me.
I will be more than happy to help with the process and introduce the person to the right recruiters as well.
I believe I can convince LinkedIn to let me continue research in quantum algorithms for around 1 day / week as well.
So perhaps in the end, I am not going away as far as one might think.
The world is quite small after all.
My direct manager at LinkedIn was Aida’s postdoc when I was her graduate student.
One never knows which doors life decides to open.

Kind Regards,
