postdoc position "Spin dynamics in open and driven nanostructures" (DIPC, San Sebastian, Spain)

Donostia International Physics center (DIPC)

we are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to apply and develop analytical and numerical methods to describe the dynamics of interacting electron and nuclear spins in graphene-based nanostructures. We are interested both in maintaining electron spin coherence despite the nuclear spin bath and in the use of controlled electron-spin systems to prepare and manipulate the state of nuclear spins. This comprises the development of protocols for transferring spin polarization between electrons and nuclei (dynamic nuclear polarization) and studying the coherent exchange of quantum information between electron and nuclear spins and the effective nuclear-spin dynamics induced by exchange-coupled electron spins.
The work will be carried out in the groups of T. Frederiksen and G. Giedke at the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC) within the Quantum Technologies area of the IKUR Strategy of the Basque Government and in collaboration with the partners of the IKUR Collaborative Project “Quantum register based on molecular spins and graphene nanostructures from CIC nanoGUNE and the CSIC Material Physics Center.
Candidates should be highly motivated researchers with a PhD degree and a strong background in theoretical solid-state physics, excellent communication skills and English knowledge. Previous experience with spin systems, electronic structure theory, quantum transport, open quantum systems, or quantum information theory would be an advantage.
The duration of the opening is up to 2 years.
