Postdoc fellowships in experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics
We seek outstanding candidates for Postdoc fellowships 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.
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.
Further information can be found here for the Center for Quantum Devices https://qdev.nbi.ku.dk, and the Department of Physics, Lund University https://www.lunduniversity.lu.se/lucat/group/v1000623
Starting date is flexible, as early as September 2020.
The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.
Application deadline: 1 June, 2020
The Niels Bohr Institute is part of the faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, and the institute has 5 different addresses in Copenhagen
B15-21 Blegdamsvej: The original institute for physics has 4 teams of scientists besides the management, the administration and technical support. Particle physics, quantum physics, eScience, biophysics and theoretical cosmology.
Vibenshuset, Lyngbyvej 2: Researchers in Astrophysics from the DARK and DAWN groups and the Condensed Matter Physics group.
Tagensvej 16: Here you will find the Physics of Ice Climate and Earth section.
The H. C. Ørsteds Institute at Universitetsparken 5: At this address you will find the nanophysics group and the Center for Quantum Devices.
Geological Museum, Øster Voldgade 5 - 7: At this address you will find the Astrophysics & Planetary Science group.
In spite of these different addresses there is a good contact, and there are many common events.
The scientific employees conduct research, and they also educate the students in astronomy, geophysics, nanoscience and basic physics. Moreover, the institute has a presentation of the research areas and the research results.
The scientists are organised in 10 teams/sections, and in connection with these teams the Niels Bohr Institute has 10 centres. A centre receives an external grant, and so it is possible to employ people for long periods of time.
The Niels Bohr Institute has established "the Niels Bohr International Academy". This academy receives a grant of DKK 10 millions from the Danish state. The purpose of the academy is to attract leading researchers for short - or long periods of time in order to promote and enhance research. "The Niels Bohr International Academy" has i.a. the "Summer Institute" with a strong programme.
In addition, the Niels Bohr Institute has 35 engineers and technicians to assist the scientists with experiments etc. They also maintain the technical infrastructure of the institute. Furthermore, the institute has 35 employeed within the areas of administration, communication, and library.
The staff of the institute has great ambitions and creative curiosity .
