Lund UniversityLund (Schweden)
The Centre for Nanoscience at Lund University (NanoLund) engages about 250 scientists in the materials
science of semiconductor nanostructures, and their application in physics, chemistry, electronics and the
life sciences at Lund University. Our research is enabled by Lund Nano Lab, a key facility for fabrication
of material and devices on the nanoscale. We are also heavily involved in the undergraduate education,
especially within the "Engineering Nanoscience" program. For more information, see
NanoLund has a world-leading position in developing advanced devices based on group III-V semiconductor
nanowires. We now announce three experimental PhD projects that will be embedded into a major focus to
develop novel devices and concepts for efficient energy conversion (e.g. light-to-electricity, heat-to-electricity,
or electricity-to-light), by employing phenomena at the nanoscale, such as quantum phenomena, photonic or
plasmonic effects, or the thermodynamics of very small systems. This research thrust is currently financed
by grants from the Swedish Energy Agency, the Swedish Research Council, and the Knut and Alice Wallenberg
Doctoral (PhD) student positions in physics (quantum transport, nanothermodynamics and nanoelectronics) as well as several other postdoc and PhD student positions
Three Doctoral (PhD) student positions in physics (quantum transport, nanothermodynamics and nanoelectronics) as well as several other postdoc and PhD student positions
The three open positions are all in experimental physics in the general area of electron transport in heterostructure nanowires, with the following focus directions:
Each of the three positions will involve nanofabrication in a clean-room environment, use of low-temperature measurement
equipment, and advanced electronic characterization techniques. All three positions will be embedded into a major thrust
in nanothermodynamics at NanoLund, in close collaboration with theory.
Lund University offers excellent conditions for PhD students, including:
a creative, world-class interdisciplinary research environment for fundamental and applied nanoscience
state-of-the-art infrastructure for the fabrication and characterization of nanostructures
a highly regarded scientific education
a strong international nanoscience network
family-friendly living conditions and a high degree of social security
a competitive salary and full employment contracts for PhD students and postdocs
We invite applications from excellent candidates anywhere in the world.
In addition, NanoLund has several other postdoc and PhD positions in both theory and experiment in the fields of material science,
optical spectroscopy and quantum thermodynamics, amongst others.
