    About the Project

    This project deals with theoretical modelling of networks of quantum dots coupled to microwave resonators. Alongside with the project, such systems will be realized and measured at QDev, and the overarching question is whether the electrodynamics of the resonators can emulate the nuclear motion in a molecule. This project aims to develop a theoretical understanding of small networks of such electrodynamically coupled quantum dots. In order to benchmark these devices as artificial molecules, part of the project aims at designing a set of basic experimental tests and to assess the prospects for emulating Franck-Condon dynamics, polaron formation, electron, and energy transfer across extended quantum dot networks. Part of the project deals with driven systems and earlier experience with nonequilibrium many-body techniques will be an advantage.


    Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.

    The starting salary is currently at a minimum DKK 330,817 (approx. €44,108) including annual supplement (+ pension at a minimum DKK 53,761). Negotiation for salary supplement is possible.
