Background and activities

Jacob Linder holds a position as Professor of Physics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology since 2013. He received his Ph.D in physics in 2009, winning several national awards for best Ph.D degree.

His main research interest is the quantum physics that emerges when combining materials with different properties in hybrid structures, such as superconductors, Dirac materials, magnets, and materials with topological properties.

Since 2017, he is one of the primary investigators in the Center of Excellence QuSpin at NTNU.
