Open positions

Graduate and undergraduate students

Our group is looking for motivated students to work on various topics of Condensed Matter physics. Specifically, we are looking for students to work on the projects related to the fundamental physics of topological superconductivity, Majorana fermions and topologically protected quantum computing

Postdoctoral associate position

The group of Prof. Leonid Rokhinson at Purdue University invites applications from new or recent doctoral recipients to join a project to study topological superconductivity. The project is a joint effort between groups of Prof. Rokhinson) and Prof. Yong Chen to fabricate and study heterogenous topological superconductors and search for non-Abelian excitations and will also involve collaboration with the group of Prof. Alex Ma. For this position we are looking for a candidate who can combine methods of superconducting c-QED with mesoscopic physics. Thus a solid background in condensed matter physics and superconductivity would be ideal. Strong experimental expertise in one or more of the involved topics (electron transport in mesoscopic systems, low temperature cryogenics, superconducting circuits, nanofabrication) is required.

A successful candidate will join a large team of physicists and materials scientists as a part of a large effort in the Quantum Science Center led by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The postdoctoral researcher will have access to the state-of-the-art research infrastructure at Purdue University (including access to the Birck Nanotechnology Center and other QSC-affiliated institutions and groups. Applications should be submitted to Prof. Leonid Rokhinson ( enclosing a cover letter, your CV, a list of publications, and a list of people who can provide references upon a request. The position is available immediately and applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
