We seek outstanding candidates for the Postdoctoral fellowship to work on
condensed matter theory at the Center for Quantum Devices, Niels Bohr
Institute, University of Copenhagen. The position is open from September 2022
or by arrangement.
The main objective of the project is to investigate emergent physics of in
solid state hybrid systems, such as superconductor-semiconductor
heterostructures and various qubits platforms, all in close collaboration with
experimental colleagues. Depending on the interests and background of the
successful candidates, the research could involve, for example, modeling of
topological superconductors, protocols for observation of nonlocal quantum
information storage in Majorana bound states, or next generation
superconducting qubits using hybrid materials.
The project is sponsored through an ERC Synergy grant.
Inquiries about the position can be made to Professor Karsten Flensberg
Description of the scientific environment
The position will be embedded in the Center for Quantum Devices (QDev) at
the Niels Bohr Institute. The research at the center is focused on quantum
science aspects of solid states systems such superconductor-semiconductor
hybrid devices, superconducting qubits, nanowires, and spin qubits. The center
is active in both theory and experiments and most projects are carried out in
collaborations with both experimental and theoretical researchers. The center
enjoys connections to other quantum science activities in Copenhagen, for
example in quantum optics and mathematical quantum information.
Terms of employment
The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff.
Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry
of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on
