3 post-doctoral positions in Superconducting transport in topological Josephson junctions

University of Twente, University of Basel, IST Austria

Three postdoctoral positions are available within the TOPSQUAD FET-Open project ( TOPSQUAD aims to develop an unprecedented stable and scalable many-qubit system leading up to a potential universal quantum computer. The project’s research will focus on developing topologically protected states in Ge/Si core/shell nanowires. Furthermore, a waferscale fabrication technology will be developed by growing thousands of nanowires through pre-patterned masks on silicon wafers, using scalable CMOS-compatible processes.
The three positions are at the University of Twente, at IST Austria, and at the University of Basel. The topic for all positions is induced superconductivity in topological Josephson junctions made from Ge wires.
University of Basel: a two-year theoretical post-doc position in the group of Jelena Klinovaja and of Daniel Loss.
IST Austria: a two-year experimental post-doc position in the group Giorgos Katsaros.
University of Twente: a joint two-year experimental post-doc position between the Nanoelectronics group and the Quantum Transport in Matter group in the groups of Floris Zwanenburg and Alexander Brinkman.
The candidate will work in close collaboration with other members of the TOPSQUAD consortium from University of Twente, University of Basel, IST Austria, Eindhoven University of Technology, Basel Precision Instruments and NanoPHAB.
