Jobbeschreibung Your position
The successful candidate will become an essential member of our fast-growing research team exploring collective many-body phenomena in magneto-opto-electronic experiments that will be conducted under extreme conditions: at temperatures down to ~10 mK and magnetic fields up to ~10 T. The candidate will be involved in all aspects of research, from engineering and fabricating electrically-tunable vdW devices, through preparing experimental setups and performing optical measurements, to implementing custom-based software for automated data acquisition and analysis. They will have access to state-of-the-art apparatus, including dry low-temperature magneto-optical cryostats, dilution refrigerator units with fiber or free-space optical access, pulsed laser systems, and clean-room device fabrication facilities. They will also benefit from excellent mechanical/electronic workshop support.
Qualifikationen Your profile
Key requirements:
- PhD degree (held or near completion) in Physics, Nanoscience, Electrical/Optical Engineering, or related fields
- Strong background in condensed matter physics and optics
- Experience in low-temperature optical spectroscopy
- Familiarity with computer-based data acquisition and processing (Python/C++/Labview)
- Strong track record of high-impact research papers and conference presentations in condensed matter physics, ideally in the field of two-dimensional materials
- Team player with excellent communication skills and collaborative working style
- Strong self-motivation and commitment to performing research in a competitive field, high degree of independence, and creative approach for solving problems
- Excellent scientific presentation skills
- Very good level of English (both written and spoken)


In addition, it is advantageous for the candidates to have experience in at least some of the following areas:
- handling dilution refrigerator systems and dry/wet helium cryostats with superconducting magnets
- exfoliation and stacking of two-dimensional materials
- design, fabrication, and handling of charge-tunable vdW heterostructures
- clean-room processing (reactive ion etching, optical/electron beam lithography, scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, metal evaporation, wire bonding)
- performing computer-based simulations and modelling in COMSOL
- using pulsed laser systems and ultra-fast optical spectroscopy (pump-probe experiments, single photon correlations, time-resolved measurements etc.)
- fiber optics
- electronic transport experiments
- physics of strongly correlated many-body systems
- mentoring junior researchers
