Postdoc in Experimental Quantum Transport

The Center for Quantum Devices is a basic research center supported by the Danish National Research Foundation, comprising materials research, experimental physics, nanoelectronics and condensed matter theory. 
The Center for Quantum Devices (QDev) is seeking applications for a postdoctoral fellowship for the experimental studies of hybrid quantum devices such as semiconductor quantum dots and wires combined with superconducting elements. The project will be an integral part of QDev’s activities within quantum devices, with prospects for systems for solid state quantum information. The research involves nanofabrication, cryogenic transport experiments using dilution refrigerators, data analysis, interaction with theoretical physicists and materials scientists, and supervision of students.  The candidate should have a PhD in experimental physics or related disciplines, extensive experience in nanofabrication and cryogenic quantum transport measurements.
