Theory of novel mesoscopic quantum devices for quantum technology


School of Electronic Engineering of Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics of National Research University Higher School of Economics invites applications for postdoctoral research position:
Theory of novel mesoscopic quantum devices for quantum technology

The project will be concerned with low dimensional structures and mesoscopic superconductivity and related to various novel applications like qubits, photon detectors, bolometers, memory applications, etc. Although the planned activity is theoretical, close contact with experimental group of Prof. K.Yu. Arutyunov is sought.
 
The job involves:
  • working under the direct supervision of Assoc. Prof. A.S. Vasenko
  • participants are encouraged to pursue their own research in parallel with working on the research projects in two broad areas:
o  Nonequilibrium quasiparticles and relaxation in superconducting quantum devices (bolometers, detectors, qubits)
o  Superconducting triplet correlations in various S/F hybrid devices for novel type of magnetoresistive memory elements
  • writing research papers for international peer-reviewed journals in co-authorship with the members of Prof. A.S. Vasenko research group
  • participation in organization of the events and other contribution to development of MIEM
  • public presentations of a candidate’s own research to the researchers in the field and the broader academic community
  • some teaching is encouraged, though not required.
 
Requirements:
  • a PhD from an international research university in such fields as: Quantum physics, Condensed matter physics, Theoretical physics
  • a strong background in theoretical quantum physics, condensed matter or mesoscopic physics
  • ability to work in a team,
  • fluent English
  • relevant experience is an asset although not required
 
General conditions for Post-Doctoral Research positions can be found here. Appointments will be normally made for one year.

A CV, research statement and two letters of recommendation should be submitted directly via online application form by  March 15, 2017. Please note that direct applications to the hiring department may not be reviewed.
