The scientific goals of this position range from advancing the understanding of the principles of superconductivity to its applications. On the basic research side, the research associate will investigate light-induced dynamics in superconductors, with numerical and analytical tools, in particular with lattice gauge theories. On the applied side, technological applications will be explored, e.g. of light-matter systems of superconductors, as well as quantum technological applications.
The teaching load comprises 3 hours p/w.
A university degree in a relevant field.
A master’s degree in physics.
Excellent knowledge of quantum physics, superconductivity, and quantum dynamics. Previous, documented activities in some or all of these fields is preferred. Excellent analytical thinking, communication, and collegial interaction with collaborators.
