We seek an outstanding candidate for a Postdoctoral Fellowship within experimental research on materials for quantum devices at the Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science at the University of Copenhagen.
Applicants should preferably hold a PhD degree in Physics, Applied Physics or Nanoscience with relevant experimental experience and a track record within their fields, or be near completion of their PhD studies at the time of application.
The project involves materials growth by molecular beam epitaxy, structural characterizations mainly by electron microscopy, data analysis and extensive interactions with other researchers in nanofabrication and low-temperature electrical measurements. The project will mainly focus on advancing new semiconducting and superconducting nanomaterials for quantum devices.
The project is mainly sponsored through a collaborative EU project AndQC focusing on devices of quantum computation (AndQC.eu) and will take place at the Center for Quantum Devices , located at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. Collaboration with the various partner institutes in Europe will be promoted, including also a close collaboration with the University’s new research program “Solid-state quantum simulators for biochemistry (SolidQ)” sponsored by the Novo Nordisk Foundation, see https://www.nbi.ku.dk/english/news/news20/physicists-and-chemists-join-forces-to-develop-quantum-simulators-of-the-future/ .
The position is open from 1 May or by arrangement. The duration is two years.
Inquiries about the positions can be made to Professor Jesper Nygård (nygård@nbi.ku.dk).
