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 http://andraspalyi.web.elte.hu .
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 (email@example.com). The application deadline is September 15, 2011. If the position is not filled by this time, additional applications will be considered.
