Post-doctoral position in QED using 2D correlated electrons

ICFO is offering a postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment.

The successful candidate will be joining the Quantum NanoElectronics and NanoMechanics group led by Prof. Dr. Adrian Bachtold, and will be part of the new joint laboratory with Prof. Dr. Frank Koppens (ICFO) and Prof. Dr. Jarillo-Herrero (MIT).

This project is part of the science and technology based on quantum materials, from advanced superconducting materials, to van der Waals materials, moiré quantum matter, collective phenomena, strong light-matter interactions and more. In particular, the project involves nano-electronic and nano-optical studies of quantum and moiré materials and devices. Many advanced tools will be available such as (diluation) cryostats with radio-frequency access, cryogenic scanning near-field microscope, etc.

This project will focus on QED with correlated electrons. We will use photon modes with large quantum fluctuations to amplify the electron-photon coupling to a level where correlated electron states in two-dimensional devices can be modified. We will study twisted bilayer graphene coupled to THz split-ring resonators in dilution fridges.
