Open post-doc position: carbon nanotube-based NEMS

We're still looking for some support in the Regensburg carbon nanotube nanomechanics team! The job description can be found below; please e-mail me if interested! The position is available immediately, however I'm travelling during March and may be hard to reach, so arranging a meeting and a presentation may take a bit of time...

You have already been working successfully with millikelvin RF equipment in your PhD research, and have a good understanding of low temperature physics as well as gigahertz technology? Ideally, you are coming from a research group specialized in superconductor-related mesoscopic physics, quantum information, or cavity QED? You are interested in contributing to a young and dynamic team, trying to push the limits of what is doable in nano-electromechanical systems?
Then you might be just about right here. Your will conduct measurements on coupled superconductor-carbon nanotube nano-electromechanical systems, with a low-temperature high frequency measurement setup in a state-of-the-art dilution refrigerator. Our NEMS team consists at the moment of one PhD student and two MSc students (who you'll help supervise). We expect your work to lead to exceptional publications!
Your salary will be based on the German TV-L E13 (info in German). Regensburg university has a strong focus on nanophysics, in particular on spin phenomena and carbon-based systems. The natives are friendly, and while our university buildings feature classic 1965 concrete, the medieval city of Regensburg is a jewel on its own, with a vibrant young atmosphere. Both mountains and Munich airport are not far away.
Interested? Have a look at our web pages, and contact Andreas K. Hüttel (e-mail: andreas.huettel@physik.uni-r.de) for more information!
