Supply Description

Description of the office

The place is positioned on the Division of Stable State Physics on the Division of Physics, a division with round 100 staff the place intensive analysis is carried out centered on numerous elements of nanophysics, starting from supplies science to bio- and quantum physics to numerous functions. The division is a central a part of NanoLund, Lund College’s giant interdisciplinary analysis Centre on nanoscience and nanotechnology. The division consists of Lund Nano Lab, a central and shared facility for the manufacturing of supplies and elements on the nanoscale. The Division has a robust dedication to undergraduate training, not least within the Grasp’s programme “Engineering Nanoscience” at LTH.

A big a part of the analysis at our division is within the space of semiconductor quantum gadgets, the place we develop new strategies and functionalities for quantum know-how. The division hosts the ERC Consolidator Grant QPHOTON (PI Ville Maisi), which goals at constructing microwave photocounters as new measurement sensors for quantum know-how. Ville Maisi’s analysis group has long-term expertise and experience in microwave photon – semiconductor nanostructure gadgets together with coherent coupling of electrons and photons and single-electron cost detection.

You can be included in a workforce of researchers at NanoLund, a extremely seen nanoscience heart that provides wonderful profession growth, an open and inclusive analysis surroundings with an energetic neighborhood of PhD college students and postdocs, and entry to a variety of state-of-the-art capabilities inside characterization, nanofabrication and modelling.

Topic description

QPHOTON’s purpose is to design, fabricate and exhibit a photodetector that counts microwave photons at excessive quantum effectivity and low backaction. This can allow to measure the statistical properties of the microwave photons. The position of this postdoc place is to realize understanding of the quantum mechanical measurement course of and backaction results that happen in our photodetectors.

Work duties

The principle duties concerned in a post-doctoral place is to conduct analysis. Instructing might also be included, however as much as not more than 20% of working hours. The place consists of the chance for 3 weeks of coaching in greater training instructing and studying. The aim of the place is to develop the independence as a researcher and to create the chance of additional growth.

Thus, the undertaking´s analysis duties are to

  • Carry out experiments in microwave resonator – semiconductor quantum dot circuits that probe concurrently the photonic and digital response.
  • Develop understanding of the quantum measurement processes by various how strongly the photonic and digital sides are measured.

The work duties might also embody cleanroom processing to make the gadgets, collaboration and supervision of PhD college students in addition to collaboration with idea teams to determine theoretical understanding of the outcomes. 

Qualification necessities 

Appointment to a post-doctoral place requires that the applicant has a PhD, or a world diploma deemed equal to a PhD, inside the topic of the place. The certificates proving the qualification requirement is met, have to be obtained earlier than the employment determination is made. Precedence will probably be given to candidates who’ve graduated not more than three years in the past earlier than the final day for software. Underneath particular circumstances, the doctoral diploma can have been accomplished earlier.

Extra necessities:

  • Superb oral and written proficiency in English.
  • Substantial expertise with quantum gadgets

Evaluation standards 
It is a profession growth place primarily centered on analysis. The place is meant as an preliminary step in a profession, and the evaluation of the candidates will primarily be based mostly on their analysis {qualifications} and potential as researchers. Explicit emphasis will probably be positioned on analysis abilities inside the topic.

For appointments to a post-doctoral place, the next shall type the evaluation standards:

  • A very good potential to develop and conduct prime quality analysis.
  • Instructing abilities. 

Different {qualifications}: 

  • Vital expertise in experimental transport physics
  • Experience in low-temperature transport and noise measurements
  • Expertise with cleanroom processing of nanodevices
  • Programming abilities for electrical measurement scripts and information evaluation, for instance with Matlab or Python.

Consideration will even be given to how the applicant’s expertise and abilities complement and strengthen ongoing analysis inside the division, and the way they stand to contribute to its future growth.

Additional data

It is a full-time, fixed-term employment of three years (state the precise interval of employment between two and three years). The interval of employment is set in accordance with the settlement “Avtal om tidsbegränsad anställning som postdoktor” (“Settlement on fixed-term employment as a post-doctoral fellow”).

Find out how to apply

The applying have to be written in English and include a letter through which you briefly describe your self and your analysis pursuits, together with contributions to the described analysis undertaking. The applying should additionally include a CV, a duplicate of the doctoral diploma certificates and a duplicate of the thesis or its draft, an inventory of not less than two references with contact particulars, copies of grades and different paperwork that you just want to discuss with. 

Candidates are additionally required to reply the job particular questions within the ultimate step of the appliance course of.
