About the Project

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship in topological quantum electronics, supervised by Dr. Kaveh Delfanazari, at the University of Glasgow, UK. The aim of this PhD studentship is to design/modeling/ fabrication/characterization/ and sub- 1K measurements of topological Josephson junctions and Josephson field effect transistors embedded into addressable integrated circuits. The devices are based on on-chip integration of superconducting quantum circuits with semiconducting nanomaterials of large g-factor/strong spin-orbit interaction, graphene, or topological insulators. Research in this project aims to explore fundamental physics of topological junctions by performing DC-microwave spectroscopy and to develop novel applications of such devices in quantum technologies.

As a student, you will have access to state-of-the-art facilities both in the electronics and nanoscale engineering division and at the James Watt Nanofabrication Center, University of Glasgow, UK. The project is in close collaboration with industry, and the student will have a chance to visit and collaborate with our collaborators. The student will gain expertise in modeling and fabrication of topological junctions, quantum devices and nanocircuits, device characterization, and measurement at sub-Kelvin temperatures in dilution refrigerators using advanced microwave-optical equipment and cryogenic optoelectronics facilities.

Interested candidates are welcome to submit their application online through the following link. They shall include a copy of their CV, three reference letters, and a maximum of two-page research proposal, all in pdf format.

For informal discussion please contact Dr. Kaveh Delfanazari,
