Postdoctoral position

Position is available within the reserach project whose objective are the Majorana quasiparticles and their interplay with the strongly correlated low-dimensional systems. In particular, there will analyzed transport via hybrid nanostructures composed of the single or multiple quantum dots coupled to topological superconductors, hosting the Majorana quasiparticles. The main aim is to develop theoretical understanding of unique signatures resulting from the Majorana quasiparticles and the strong electron correlations, showing up in experimentally observable transport properties. Specific research tasks cover:
a) transport properties of the correlated double quantum dots side-coupled to the Majorana wire,
b) cross-correlations between the quantum dots transmitted via the topologically superconducting nanowire,
c) interplay between the Majorana quasiparticles and correlations for the quantum dot in the Kondo regime

We are looking for candidates who will realize the indicated research goals, by implementing computational methods to determine spectral and transport properties of the correlated quantum impurities.

The monthly salary would be 10 000 PLN (~2 300 EUR) before taxing, which is circa 1 400 EUR after subtracting all the administrative expenses.

Formal requirements :
• CV (with description of research achievements & list of publications),
• recommendation letter from a renowned researcher,
• certificate (scan would be acceptable) of Ph.D. diploma,
• declaration stating, that M. Curie-Sklodowska University will be the only employee,
• letter to the Rector of M. Curie-Sklodowska University, stating the intention to be employed as the postdoc,
• agreement for processing personal data that are necessary for recruitment process.
