Currently, we have opportunities for
see below for details.
Please contact Dominik Zumbühl for more information.
We are looking for a motivated, talented and technology-savvy physics or nanoscience student for research of the theoretically predicted g-factor anisotropy in a lateral Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) quantum dot spin qubit device measured at sub-Kelvin temperature. For further information please refer to the following pdf document or contact Prof. Dr. Zumbühl and/or Leon Camenzind.
We are looking for a highly motivated master student who is interested in working on low temperature quantum transport experiments. The goal of those experiments is to utilize a new spectroscopy technique developed in our group with the aim to obtain the velocities of edge states in cleaved edge overgrown samples. For further information please refer to the following pdf document or contact Prof. Dr. Zumbühl and/or Taras Patlatiuk.
We are looking for outstanding and highly motivated graduate students and/or postdoctoral fellows who would like to work on low temperature quantum transport experiments in semiconductor or graphene nanostructures. Possible projects include experiments on
See also the group's publications for recent recent and ongoing projects.
Ph. D. Candidates need to hold a masters (or equivalent) degree, preferably in physics or a closely related discipline. Some prior experience in (experimental) condensed matter physics would be helpful. German language proficiency is not necessary. Graduate students are expected to work in a team together with postdoctoral fellows as well as graduate and undergraduate students.
Post-doc Candidates should have a Ph. D. in experimental physics or a closely related field and need a strong background in at least some of the following areas: mesoscopic physics and experiments, device nanofabrication, millikelvin experiments, low noise electronic measurements, microwave and fast pulse techniques, experiment control and data acquisition. German language proficiency is not necessary. Post-docs are working in a team and help advise students.
As a part of a continuing academic education, both graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in our Department are participating in various teaching activities, primarily during the semester (about one day per week effort during semesters).
Starting date 2016. Post-doctoral assignment: 2-3 years. Ph. D. duration: 4 years.
The Department of Physics in Basel offers a highly stimulating and collaborative environment with several active and internationally recognized research groups in both experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics. The experimental groups are jointly running excellent clean room facilities which we continue to develop and extend to meet our changing nanofabrication needs. Further, an outstanding electronics workshop and a superb machine shop are operated by our Department. Our group is part of
the Basel QC2 Center for Quantum Computing and Quantum Coherence,
the Swiss Nanoscience Institute,
the NCCR Quantum Science and Technology - NCCR QSIT of the Swiss NSF,
and the Harvard NSEC Nanoscale Science end Engineering Center.
