Doctoral Position in Physics

A PhD position is available in physics at University of Copenhagen. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply. Applicants should apply before April 15, 2015.

The Center for Quantum Devices plans to employ 1-2 PhD Students (experimentalists) to be part of a team of theorists and experimentalists focusing on the braiding of majorana modes in superconductor-semiconductor nanowires, as part of a Microsoft-sponsored research activity to build the components for a topological quantum computer. Research activities will involve nanofabrication, robotic control of nanowire placement to build circuits, cryogenic measurement using a dilution refrigerator, nanosecond control of electrostatic gate voltages using arbitrary waveform generators, development of control electronics and software, and writing and publishing results.

Principal supervisor is Professor Charles Marcus, Center for Quantum Devices, The successful applicant will be enrolled as a PhD Student at the University of Copenhagen and possibly jointly with Delft Technical University. In addition to research, PhD students will take courses, teach at times, and participate in international meetings, conferences, and collaborations with partner laboratories around the world.

The starting salary is currently at a minimum DKK 305,291 including annual supplement (+ pension up to DKK 42,17.

Application Requirements
Candidates should have experience in an experimental physics laboratory, a bachelor, master, or an undergraduate degree in physics (or possibly computer science if accompanied by experimental physics experience) and experience with data analysis and programming.

The position is available for a 3-year period for applicants holding a relevant master's degree or as an integrated master's and PhD program by enrolling in a 4 +4 or 3 +5 program. This makes current bachelor students in their final year applicable to apply for the PhD fellowship.
