NanoElectronics group @ MESA+
The NE Group is embedded in the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology (www.mesaplus.utwente.nl). MESA+ is one of the largest nanotechnology research institutes in the world, delivering competitive and successful high-quality research. It uses a unique structure, which unites scientific disciplines, and builds fruitful international cooperation to excel in science and education. The institute employs 500 people of which 275 are PhD’s or PostDocs. With its brand new NanoLab facilities the institute holds 1250 m2 of cleanroom space and state-of-the-art research equipment. MESA+ has an internationally appealing and multidisciplinary approach by combining physics, electrical engineering, chemistry, materials science and mathematics.
We are looking for a highly motivated and skilled PhD student to carry out a project on silicon quantum dots, an exciting research field that attracts an ever-increasing amount of attention worldwide and forms a main research theme within the NanoElectronics group (NE, www.nano-electronics.nl). NE focuses in particular on the intersects and overlapping areas of quantum electronics, spin electronics (spintronics) and hybrid inorganic-organic electronics. The silicon quantum team aims at using surface acoustic waves to control and transport electrons in silicon quantum dots.
Are you up for the challenge to help us reach a new era for quantum acoustics?
As a PhD student in this project:
The start of the project is as soon as possible.
INFORMATION AND APPLICATION
Applications should include an application/motivation letter, emphasizing your specific interest and motivation to apply for this position, a detailed CV (resume), a publication list, contact details of at least 2 referees, and an academic transcript of B.Sc. and M.Sc. education. An interview and a scientific presentation will be part of the selection procedure.
For more information about the position, please contact either prof. dr. ir. W.G. van der Wiel (firstname.lastname@example.org) or dr. ir. F. A. Zwanenburg (email@example.com)).
You will be appointed on a fulltime position for four years, within a very stimulating scientific environment. The university offers a dynamic ecosystem with enthusiastic colleagues.
