Majorana

We are seeking outstanding experimentalists for a postdoctoral fellowship to explore nonlocal properties of Majorana systems based on superconductor-semiconductor hybrid materials.

The project is sponsored through an ERC Synergy grant and will take place at the Center for Quantum Devices, at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen.

Applicants should hold a PhD degree in Physics or Applied Physics with relevant experimental experience and a publication record within their field.

The project involves low-temperature physics experiments in cryofree dilution refrigerators, low-noise and high-frequency electrical measurement techniques, nanofabrication, data analysis, interaction with theoretical physicists, and scientific writing.  

The position is open from October 1st 2021 or by arrangement. The duration is two years with possible extension upon mutual agreement.

Inquiries about the positions can be made to Ferdinand Kuemmeth (kuemmeth@nbi.ku.dk) and Charles Marcus (marcus@nbi.dk).

Description of the scientific environment
The Center for Quantum Devices is a research center within the Niels Bohr Institute comprising materials research, experimental solid-state physics, quantum nanoelectronics, and condensed matter theory. The Center provides a vibrant scientific environment with cutting-edge research performed across many different groups in fundamental condensed matter physics, with a particularly strong linkage between materials, experiment, and theory.  Further information about QDev can be found at www.qdev.dk.

Terms of employment
The postdoctoral fellowship is at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.

The starting salary is currently up to DKK 440.935 including annual supplement (+ pension up to DKK 75.399). Negotiation for salary supplement is possible.

The application, in English, must be submitted electronically by clicking APPLY NOW below.

Application Procedure
Please send an application that describes your background and your work relevant to the research field, including a CV and publication list. List up to three researchers that you have worked with closely who can provide references, if needed (we will contact you for your consent if we wish to contact these).

The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.

Application deadline: 15 August 2021, 23:59 GMT +2.
