Assistant Professor / Postdoctoral Positions
Assistant Professor in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics
We seek outstanding candidates with a proven record of high-impact research and the ambition to lead experimental research in condensed matter physics and attract independent funding. Research areas should generally be in the area of quantum electronic devices, leveraging novel materials or hybrid systems for fundamental studies and related quantum applications. Read more here….
Assistant Professor in theoretical condensed matter physics
We seek an outstanding candidate for a 3-year position as assistant professor. The successful candidate is expected to establish collaborations with the experimental and theoretical activities in the center. The current research areas are topological quantum systems, spin qubits, quantum transport, and material science of hybrid superconductor-semiconductor systems. Read more here….
Postdoc fellowships in experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics
We seek outstanding candidates for Postdoc fellowships to work on new physics and phenomenology of nonabelian systems. The research is on hybrid superconductor-semiconductor structures and the overarching goal of the project is to demonstrate the existence of nonlocal and nonabelian quasiparticles. Read more here….
We are always looking for enthusiastic researchers and postdocs. Please contact QDev faculty to discuss current opportunities
PhD fellowships in experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics
We seek outstanding candidates for PhD positions to work on new physics and phenomenology of nonabelian systems. The program is sponsored through an ERC Synergy grant and involves advanced experimental and theoretical projects that work closely together. The research is on hybrid superconductor-semiconductor structures and the overarching goal of the project is to demonstrate the existence of nonlocal and nonabelian quasiparticles. Read more here….

We are always looking for enthusiastic technicians. Please contact QDev faculty or technical staff to discuss current opportunities
The Niels Bohr Institute is part of the faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, and the institute has 5 different addresses in Copenhagen
B15-21 Blegdamsvej: The original institute for physics has 4 teams of scientists besides the management, the administration and technical support. Particle physics, quantum physics, eScience, biophysics and theoretical cosmology.
Vibenshuset, Lyngbyvej 2: Researchers in Astrophysics from the DARK and DAWN groups and the Condensed Matter Physics group.
Tagensvej 16: Here you will find the Physics of Ice Climate and Earth section.
The H. C. Ørsteds Institute at Universitetsparken 5: At this address you will find the nanophysics group and the Center for Quantum Devices.
Geological Museum, Øster Voldgade 5 - 7: At this address you will find the Astrophysics & Planetary Science group.
In spite of these different addresses there is a good contact, and there are many common events.
The scientific employees conduct research, and they also educate the students in astronomy, geophysics, nanoscience and basic physics. Moreover, the institute has a presentation of the research areas and the research results.
The scientists are organised in 10 teams/sections, and in connection with these teams the Niels Bohr Institute has 10 centres. A centre receives an external grant, and so it is possible to employ people for long periods of time.
The Niels Bohr Institute has established "the Niels Bohr International Academy". This academy receives a grant of DKK 10 millions from the Danish state. The purpose of the academy is to attract leading researchers for short - or long periods of time in order to promote and enhance research. "The Niels Bohr International Academy" has i.a. the "Summer Institute" with a strong programme.
In addition, the Niels Bohr Institute has 35 engineers and technicians to assist the scientists with experiments etc. They also maintain the technical infrastructure of the institute. Furthermore, the institute has 35 employeed within the areas of administration, communication, and library.
The staff of the institute has great ambitions and creative curiosity .
