The Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience focuses on research, innovation and education within the fields of future electronics, photonics, bio- and nanosystems. A close collaboration with Swedish and international partners within academia, industry and society enables scientific excellence and creates an innovative environment. In addition to the 200 researchers and PhD students, MC2 houses a cleanroom for micro- and nanofabrication with the latest equipment.


Information about the project
The project is a theory project focused on describing superconducting quantum materials in general, and more specifically the electronic and optical properties of mesoscopic devices of unconventional superconductors. An important longterm goal of the project is the development of a software package for solving the so-called quasiclassical equations of superconductivity in realistic device geometries. The current version runs on a GPU. The successful candidate will work on both the theoretical research aspect and the high-performance computing aspect of the project in collaboration with students in the group.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility as a postdoc is to perform your research in a research group. The position may also include supervising master's and/or PhD students in projects focusing on either Physics or High-Performance Computing. Another important aspect involves collaboration within academia and with society at large. The position is a stepping stone for future research duties within academia as well as in industry or the public sector.

Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years (1+1).

Qualifications
To qualify for the position of postdoc, you must have a doctoral degree in physics. Excellent analytic and numerical skills as well as proven skills in both spoken and written communication are meritourious. You are expected to be accustomed to teaching, and to demonstrate good potential within research and education.

The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in Swedish and English. If Swedish is not your native language, you should be able to teach in Swedish on undergraduate level after two years. Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.
