PhD fellowships in experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics

We seek outstanding candidates for PhD positions to work on new physics and phenomenology of nonabelian systems. Our team is located at the Center for Quantum Devices, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, and the Department of Physics, Lund University.

PhD fellowshipsin experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics

The program is sponsored through an ERC Synergy grant and involves advanced experimental and theoretical projects that work closely together. This gives a unique opportunity for participating in a creative project where theory and experiment together explore new physics. The research is on hybrid superconductor-semiconductor structures and the overarching goal of the project is to demonstrate the existence of nonlocal and nonabelian quasiparticles.

The experimental groups are led by Ferdinand Kuemmeth and Charles Marcus while the theoretical part is led by Karsten Flensberg and Martin Leijnse. Please send an email to synergy@nbi.ku.dk to express your interest or receive more information.

Starting date is flexible, as early as September 2020.
