1-2 PhD Scholarship on Majorana fermions in the Center for Quantum Devices. The Center for Quantum Devices at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen has a 1-2 open Ph.D. positions in experimental condensed matter/device physics for the development of schemes to create, detect, and braid majorana fermions in networks made from semiconductor heterostructures, nanowires, and superconductors.The long-term goal of the project is to investigate topological protection of these topological quantum states and to realize topological quantum information processing systems.The project involves nanofabrication using electron-beam lithography, low-noise measurement at millikelvin temperatures, control of high-bandwidth electronics, data analysis, collaboration with theorists, writing and publishing. The candidate should have experience with device fabrication and low-temperature measurement.
-The position is open for candidates of all nationalities.
– The successful applicant will be enrolled as a Ph.D. student at the University of Copenhagen. The Ph.D. program, in addition to the project work, comprises participation in courses or international Ph.D. schools and some activity as teaching assistant.
