Permanent positions

Permanent positions

NTNU NanoLab in Trondheim has an open permanent position for a senior engineer within nanocharacterisation.  

The new engineer will mainly work in the nanocharacterisation area of the cleanroom, which is equipped with several SEMs, two dual-beam FIB instruments, an AFM, optical and stylus profilers, a Micro Raman Spectroscopy instrument and several smaller characterisation instruments. The position will contribute to the operator service for nanostructuring and -characterisation currently under development at NTNU NanoLab.

The position includes:

  • Troubleshooting
  • Repair and maintenance of existing characterisation equipment
  • Procurement and installation of new equipment.
  • Our new engineer will give instrument training and user support in addition to administrative tasks.

PhD and post doc positions

PhD and post doc positions

We seek an outstanding candidate for a PhD position in theoretical condensed matter physics at the QuSpin Center for Quantum Spintronics, in the Department of Physics, NTNU in Trondheim, Norway. The PhD candidate will develop advanced theoretical methods related to nonequilibrium quantum transport and many-body properties of novel low-dimensional quantum materials.

A position is available as postdoctoral researcher at the QuSpin Center for Quantum Spintronics, which is part of the Department of Physics, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway. At QuSpin, our theory activity focuses on developing models for the utilization of spins and other quantum degrees of freedom in magnetic insulators, topological insulators, and superconductors. The candidate will contribute to these developments, with a particular focus on the theory of superconducting and magnetic materials.

The position is embedded in and financed through the Nano2021 project “EPIC - Self-sufficient Electromechanical Implants: Enabling Piezoelectric Functionality for in vivo Devices”

The main scope of the open Post Doctor position is the development and construction of a one-of-its-kind streaming potential setup.  This will allow the characterization of the piezoelectric functionality in liquid environments – mimicking the situation a piezoelectric implant would experience. As piezoelectric materials change their surface charge state, when a mechanical load is applied, the envisaged setup will combine the streaming potential component with the possibility to apply mechanical load.
