The Niels Bohr International Academy (NBIA) at Copenhagen University seeks candidates for (2+1)-year postdoctoral fellowships in condensed matter theory. Applicants are expected to have strong research credentials in the field, and will have the opportunity to collaborate with the highly active condensed matter physics and quantum information communities at the Niels Bohr Institute. Target areas include (but are not limited to): quantum dynamics in driven/open systems; mesoscopic, low-dimensional, and quantum Hall systems; quantum devices (solid state qubits); strongly correlated systems; topological order and entanglement. The starting date is intended to be fall 2016, but can be flexible.
The Niels Bohr International Academy is a center for fundamental research including theoretical and computational astrophysics, cosmology, high-energy particle physics, condensed matter physics, quantum information, and bio-physics. The NBIA has an extensive program of visiting scholars throughout the year and sponsors conferences and workshops in a broad range of topics. The Academy maintains strong links with the Center for Quantum Devices (QDev), Microsoft Research, the quantum optics group (QUANTOP).
NBIA Fellows receive a competitive salary (including pension) and funds for travel and computing. Generous parental leave, state-subsidized childcare, vacation, and full medical care are provided to employees in Denmark. A favourable tax scheme is generally granted to international researchers.
