We are currently hiring!

We are currently looking for a motivated and ambitious postdoctoral researcher with a background in materials growth and fabrication, low-temperature transport measurements and spectroscopy characterisation of superconducting systems and quantum devices. For more information, contact Prof. Di Bernardo directly and send a copy of your CV.

For Ph.D. candidates and for general inquiries about opportunities and positions available in the group, please feel free to contact Prof. Di Bernardo. 

We also have several possibilities for Bachelor'sMaster's and HiWi projects to carry out during the year, also in collaboration with research groups outside the University of Konstanz.  

PhD positions

Ph.D. positions will be regularly advertised via the University's job webpage and through other websites (e.g. Nature jobs, academicpositions.com etc.). Also, positions currently available will be listed at the top of this webpage.

If you are a motivated student who is interested in doing a Ph.D., however, please contact Prof. Di Bernardo directly, even if no job openings are advertised on this page.

Postdoctoral researchers

The same written above for Ph.D. students applies also to postdoctoral research assistants. Strong candidates may also consider applying for a Marie-Curie Fellowship or Humboldt Fellowship with the support of Prof. Di Bernardo. For more information, please send a copy of your CV and contact Prof. Di Bernardo directly. 

HiWis, Bachelor's and Master's students

A range of interesting HiWi jobs, Bachelor's theses and Master's theses are always available. For more details, feel free to send an email to angelo.dibernardo@uni-konstanz.de or to contact any of the Ph.D. students and other researchers already in the group. A tour of the experimental lab facilities can also be arranged. 

Some of the experimental techniques which you will learn as part of your project include:

  • X-ray diffraction
  • Pulsed laser deposition and dc magnetron sputtering
  • Exfoliation of 2D materials and assembly via the dry-transfer technique
  • Vacuum- and pumping techniques
  • Low-temperature magnetotransport
  • Low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy (in collaboration with Prof. Scheer).
  • Numerical data acquisition and evaluation
