Deadline for applications(14 days left)
Research assistants / PostDoc in Quantum Technology at the Institute of Nanostructure Technologies and Analytics, University of Kassel, Germany
The Institute of Nanostructure Technologies and Analytics (INA) is inviting strongly motivated people to apply for research assistant positions to join
their Nano Optics Group led by Priv.-Doz. Dr. M. Benyoucef as part of a new interdisciplinary project on Scalable Molecular Quantum Bits (SMolBits). The
project's focus is on understanding quantum effects in molecular systems integrated on solid state platform and for the development of a new concept for
quantum computers and/or quantum processors. The project features the participation of interdisciplinary teams (Experimental and Theoretical Physics,
Chemistry, and Electrical Engineering) and is coordinated by the Technological Physics. The State of Hesse is funding "SMolBits" with approx. 4.4 million
euros over four years.

The Institute of Nanostructure Technologies and Analytics (INA) of the University of Kassel, Germany, is a joint lab between Electrical Engineering and Physics.
The INA is operated mainly by two groups with currently about 80 people (including students) focusing on nanostructure technologies and their applications mainly
in photonics, optics and optoelectronics. The resources at INA include 400 sqm clean room facilities with semiconductor processing technology for III-V materials
and Si and about 400 sqm additional laboratory space. This includes state-of-the art epitaxial (MBE, CVD), lithography (photo, e-beam), dry-etching (RIE, ICP-RIE),
deposition (evaporators, IBE, CVD), and analytical equipment (PL, XRD, AFM, FIB, laser measurement systems) allowing full process flows from epitaxial materials
to mounted devices. The Technological Physics Department (http://tp.ina-kassel.de) operates a double chamber molecular beam epitaxy (Veeco Gen II Modula) for III-V
materials based on GaAs and InP substrates. A new double chamber MBE system dedicated for III-V and Si/Ge epitaxy will be installed in 2018, which will allow the
monolithic integration of III-V active materials on Si.
