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 seeking a Master or Project Work should directly contact Christian Schönenberger or a member of the group. You can also look under teaching.

Currently, there is a master project on circuit QED available

Currently, there is also a new PhD fellowship available in van der Waals heterostructures with superconductive contacts read more

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 advise 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 as well as names and contact info of referees to Christian Schönenberger. A description of interests and skills would be helpful.
