Center for Quantum Spintronics (QuSpin)
In September 2017 QuSpin received status as a Center of Excellence, funded by the Research Council of Norway and NTNU. The Research Council awarded ten research groups across all fields of science and humanities status as Centres of Excellence (SFF centres). The ten new centres will receive a total of NOK 1.5 billion over a ten-year period to carry out world-class research.
The principal goal of the center is to describe, characterize and develop recently identified quantum approaches to control electric signals in advanced nanoelectronics, conceptually different from those existing today. Our vision is to trigger a revolution in low-power information and communication technologies in an energy-efficient society.
We are continuously looking for outstanding PhD and postdoc/researcher candidates to join us at QuSpin. We hire all year around. Skilled and motivated candidates are encouraged to contact us.
THREE NEW POSITIONS AT QUSPIN

QuSpin is announcing two PhD position.
The candidate for the first position will develop theoretical models related to transport of spin and other degrees of freedom in magnetic systems and superconductors. For further inquiries and information, please contact our Primary Investigator Professor Jacob Linder, at email@example.com. Application deadline, January 6th 2019. Please apply here.
The candidate for the second position will contribute to the developments of theoretical models related to transport of spin and other degrees of freedom in magnetic insulators, topological insulators, and superconductors, with a special focus on ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic materials. For further inquiries and information, please contact our Center Director, Professor Arne Brataas, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Application deadline, January 15th 2019. Please apply here.
December 12th, 2018
QuSpin is announcing a PostDoc position. The candidate for this position will develop theoretical models related to transport of spin and other degrees of freedom in magnetic insulators, topological insulators, and superconductors. The PostDoc is free to work on any topic of interest to QuSpin. Collaborations within the center is encouraged. The candidate will join and become part of an excellent international research environment in quantum condensed matter theory and experiments. For further inquiries and information, please contact the Center Director, Professor Arne Brataas, at email@example.com. Application deadline, January 10th 2019. Please apply here.
