THIS IS A READVERTISEMENT. PREVIOUS APPLICANTS NEED NOT APPLY.
We intend to make an appointment focusing on the interplay between quantum states and vibrations in carbon nanotube devices, and on how to utilise this interplay to monitor quantum thermodynamic processes. The appointment is fixed-term for 3 years.
You will have a background in quantum device experiments at cryogenic temperature. You will have a PhD (or be near completion) in experiments on electron/hole transport, and experience in nanofabrication and high frequency control of quantum devices. You will engage and work collaboratively with others to deliver a research project on quantum thermodynamics, especially with our network of theorists in non-equilibrium and quantum thermodynamics, and participate in meetings with other researchers in Oxford and elsewhere as required.
We are working on devices which will enable a key capability for experiments on quantum thermodynamics: direct measurements of work exchange in two level systems. We are working on this in collaboration with a network of theorist.
All applications must be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and a supporting statement as part of your application. Please do not attach any manuscripts, papers, transcripts, mark sheets or certificates as these will not be considered as part of your application.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 2 March 2020. Please note in normal circumstances only interview travel expenses within the UK will be reimbursed.
