The PI of the quantum- and nanoelectronics group, Christian Schönenberger, will retire in summer 2024 and will thus not hire new PhD students and postdoctoral fellows.

However, Dr. Andreas Baumgartner, a senior scientist currently in the group, is a PI in several ongoing / future projects. Hence, if you are interested in our research and would like to get more informations on possible openings for a PhD student or postdoctoral position, you should apply to Andreas Baumgartner.

Students seeking for an internship, project or master work should contact either Christian Schönenberger or Andreas Baumgartner or any member of the group.

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 with publication list and/or a thesis, names and contact information of referees, as well as a short motivation letter.
