Responsibilities/Job Description

The main objective of the project is to investigate emergent physics of in solid state hybrid systems, such as superconductor-semiconductor heterostructures and various qubits platforms, all in close collaboration with experimental colleagues. Depending on the interests and background of the successful candidates, the research could involve, for example, modeling of topological superconductors, protocols for observation of nonlocal quantum information storage in Majorana bound states, or next generation superconducting qubits using hybrid materials.

The project is sponsored through an ERC Synergy grant.

About the Department

The position will be embedded in the Center for Quantum Devices (QDev) at the Niels Bohr Institute. The research at the center is focused on quantum science aspects of solid states systems such superconductor-semiconductor hybrid devices, superconducting qubits, nanowires, and spin qubits. The center is active in both theory and experiments and most projects are carried out in collaborations with both experimental and theoretical researchers. The center enjoys connections to other quantum science activities in Copenhagen, for example in quantum optics and mathematical quantum information.
