Faculty Position in Topological Matter and Quantum Devices

Delft University of Technology invites applications for a faculty position at QuTech for topological matter and quantum devices. Depending on the applicant’s profile, the position will be either as a senior researcher at QuTech or embedded as an assistant professor position in the Department of Quantum Nanoscience (QN) of the Faculty of Applied Sciences. Consideration of applications for a tenured associate or full professor level position may be given to exceptionally well qualified individuals.

We are looking for an excellent scientist with a research focus on harnessing topological quantum effects that have the potential to develop intrinsically robust quantum bits. Possible topics range from the physics of topological superconductivity, nanodevices hosting non-Abelian anyons to novel quantum bit architectures. The research direction should allow for synergy with the existing work on topological quantum computation within QuTech. Candidates are expected to have a successful scientific track record and be able to formulate an independent research program. If the faculty position is to be embedded in the QN department, the candidate is expected to participate in teaching.

PhD position theorist

There is a PhD position available for a talented theorist in the NWO programma "Chirality-induced spin selectivity en electron transport". The programme is a collaboration between scientists from Leiden and Delft, aiming to unravel the spectacular phenomenon of chiral-induced spin selectivity.

The candidate will use analytical and computational tools available in the Thijssen group for studying the phenomenon of spin selectivity, induced by
chiral molecules, a phenomenon which has received a lot of attention in the quantum nanoscience community.

The successful candidate has a master's degree or equivalent in physics, with a strong theoretical component.
He/she is interested in collaboration with experiments and is comfortable in analytical en computational work.
