We seek outstanding candidates for two PhD positions to work on condensed matter experiments at the Center for Quantum Devices, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen.
The project is sponsored through an ERC Synergy grant and focuses on experiments to test the non-local and non-abelian nature of Majorana bound states in hybrid super/semiconductors.
Further information can be found here for the Center for Quantum Devices: https://qdev.nbi.ku.dk.
Applicants should hold a master’s degree or a US undergraduate degree in Physics or Applied Physics with relevant experimental experience, ideally including published research.
The project involves nanofabrication, low-temperature physics using a cryofree dilution refrigerator, low-noise and high-frequency electrical measurement techniques, data analysis, interaction with theoretical physicists, and scientific writing in English.
The position is open from 1 April 2021 or by arrangement.
Inquiries about the positions can be made to Associate Professor Ferdinand Kuemmeth (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Professor Charles Marcus (email@example.com).
