research position in theoretical condensed matter physics at the Institute of Physics (Hungary)

Applications are invited for a research position in theoretical condensed matter physics at the
Institute of Physics, Eotvos University, Budapest, Hungary.

The successful candidate will theoretically investigate electronic properties of carbon-based (nanotube and graphene) solid-state systems for quantum information processing. Further possible research fields are: (1) coupling of electron spins (spin qubits) to nanomechanical systems, and the use of those in quantum information processing, (2) spin- and valley-controlled electronic transport in graphene. Further information on ongoing research activities can be found at .

Both MSc-level physicists and applicants holding a PhD are encouraged to apply. In the former case, a 4-year research assistant ("tudomanyos segedmunkatars") position will be offered, and the researcher is expected to enroll for the PhD school in Physics at Eotvos University from September 1, 2012. In the latter case, a research associate ("tudomanyos munkatars") position will be offered, with a flexible contract length between 1 year and 4 years. In both cases, the earliest starting date of the position is October 1, 2011.

Applications and informal inquiries may be addressed to Dr. Andras Palyi ( The application deadline is September 15, 2011. If the position is not filled by this time, additional applications will be considered.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
