Postdoctoral Fellow in Superconducting Nanoelectronics

Quantum Nanoelectronics Laboratory

HSE University

Moscow, Russia


The Quantum Nanoelectronics Laboratory (MIEM, HSE University) in Moscow, Russia, invites applications for postdoctoral research positions in the field of Superconducting nanoelectronics:


Magnetic response of multiband superconductors


Multiband superconductors are very promising materials because they can offer a broad intertype domain, where the material shows anomalous magnetic response. Among them, the newly discovered materials with coexisting magnetic and superconducting order parameters are of special interest. Multiband superconductors can be used to create quantum metamaterials with great possibilities of controlling the magnetic response for sensors and other applications. The research project aims to investigate analytically and numerically the magnetic response of these materials within the Ginzburg-Landau formalisms.


About HSE University

The Higher School of Economics (HSE University) is a young, dynamic and fast-growing Russian research university. Over the past 25 years, HSE University has become a leader in Russian education, while also being recognized globally.

For instance, we were the first state-run university in Russia to begin recruiting on the international academic market. We aim at being a university with a highly attuned approach to training new professionals. Therefore, we are eager to hire people with real experience, as well as basic and applied knowledge. Committed to high-quality research, HSE University now has more than 100 research institutes and centres and over 50 international research laboratories collaborating with international specialists from all over the world.



The general requirements for the postdoctoral fellowship positions are the following:

  • Candidates must hold a recent PhD in the field of Quantum physics, Condensed matter physics, Theoretical physics or related areas which was awarded over the last 5 years or received before starting work at HSE in a relevant field by an internationally recognized university and has been assessed by external reviewers as having the potential to pursue research that is publishable in leading peer-reviewed journals;
  • Candidates should have a strong background in numerical simulations, theoretical condensed matter physics and the ability to work in a team;
  • Fluent English is an obligatory condition as research and other activities are conducted in English. Knowledge of Russian is not required;
  • Relevant experience in the numerical integration of the Ginzburg-Landau equations with the link variables method will be an asset although not required.



The position involves:

  • working under the direct supervision of of Prof. Andrey Vasenko;
  • participants are encouraged to pursue their own research along with working on Quantum Nanoelectronics Laboratory research projects such as:
    • Studies of the magnetic response of ferromagnetic superconductors for possible sensor applications;
    • Investigation of the possibility of high critical temperature in multiband superconductors with quasi-1D shallow bands;
  • writing research papers for international peer-reviewed journals in co-authorship with Prof. Andrey Vasenko and other members of the Quantum Nanoelectronics Laboratory;
  • participation in the events of the Laboratory and other contribution to the Lab’s development;
  • public presentations of candidate’s own research to the academic community;
  • some teaching is encouraged, though not required.




Appointments are made for one year. Postdoctoral fellows have an opportunity of renewal of the contract (no more than two times).

HSE University offers postdoctoral fellows a competitive salary, the standard medical insurance plan, a working space equipped with a computer and free Internet access at the University.
