We are always interested in highly motivated students who would like to work experimentally on modern topics in the field of  quantum engineered electronics. Interested applicants should contact Christian Schönenberger for an informal discussion to assess the opportunities available in our group.

Students (not from abroad) seeking a Master or Project Work should directly contact Christian Schönenberger or a member of the group. Specific project are announced under teaching.


Currently available fellowships are:

There are currently three open positions for PhD fellows, one on Superconductivity in Twisted Bilayer of Graphene and one on GeSi Core-Shell Nanowires with Proximitized Superconductivity

the other on  Superconducting Subgap States in Nanowires .


General requirements for applicants:

Post-doc Candidates should hold a Ph. D. in experimental physics or similar and need a strong background in the following areas: quantum transport physics, device nanofabrication, cryogenic experiments, low signal electronic measurements,  electronic control of experiments and data acquisition. German language proficiency is not necessary. The candidate is expected to work together with and help to advise graduate and undergratuate students.

Ph. D. Candidates need to hold a masters (or equivalent) degree, preferably in physics or nanosciences. Some prior experience in (experimental) physics would be helpful. German language proficiency is not necessary. Graduate students are expected to work together with postdoctoral fellows as well as other graduate and undergraduate students.

Both graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in our Department are required to assume teaching assistant responsibilities during the semester (half a day to one day per week effort).

The Department of Physics at the University of Basel and The Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) offers a highly stimulating environment with active and internationally recognized research groups in both experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics.
To apply, please email a curriculum vitae, publications and/or a thesis, names and contact information of referees, as well as a short motivation letter to Christian Schönenberger.
