Postdoctoral fellowships in experimental aspects of non-abelian condensed matter physics, Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science University of Copenhagen

We seek outstanding candidates for one or more Postdoctoral Fellowships to experimentally test the non-local and non-abelian nature of Majorana bound states in hybrid super/semiconductors.

The project is sponsored through an ERC Synergy grant and will take place at the Center for Quantum Devices, located at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen.

Applicants should hold a PhD degree in Physics or Applied Physics with relevant experimental experience and a track record within their fields.
The project involves low-temperature physics experiments in cryofree dilution refrigerators, low-noise and high-frequency electrical measurement techniques, nanofabrication, data analysis, interaction with theoretical physicists, and scientific writing in English.  

The position is open from March 15th 2021 or by arrangement. The duration is two years with possible extension upon mutual agreement.

Inquiries about the positions can be made to Associate Professor Ferdinand Kuemmeth ( and Professor Charles Marcus (
