Qualification Details

Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country.

Assessment criteria

The degree must have been completed at latest before the employment decision is made, but no more than three years before the closing date. An older degree may be acceptable under special circumstances. Special reasons refer to sick leave, parental leave, elected positions in trade unions, service in the total defense, or other similar circumstances as well as clinical attachment or service/assignments relevant to the subject area.

In the appointment process, special attention will be given to research skills. Candidates should have a strong profile of independent and original theoretical research related to the fields of quantum information and processing or complex dynamical networks.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The project is a newly started project at Nordita and will for the next few years nurture research activities centered around quantum information and complex networks. The surrounding circle of ideas includes quantum computers, machine learning, and "big data".

Successful candidates will participate the vibrant and diverse research environment at Nordita and the closely adjacent Stockholm and Uppsala communities, which in coming years will be significantly strengthened with further hiring, including at senior levels.

About the Department/Section/Group

Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1957. It moved to the AlbaNova University Center in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2007, where it is jointly hosted by KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University. Research at Nordita covers a broad range of theoretical physics including astrophysics, biophysics, condensed matter physics, gravitation, cosmology and astroparticle physics, high-energy physics, and statistical physics/complex systems. The research activity of the local academic staff is supplemented by Nordita Scientific Programs, which bring together groups of leading experts to work on specific topics for extended periods. There is also ample opportunity for collaboration with faculty and research staff at local universities. Further information about Nordita can be found at
