In the nanophysics group we do research, both theoretical and experimental, on various systems on the nanometer scale.  Our research interests include fabrication and growth of semiconductor samples, vacuum electronics based on semiconductor microstructures, spin and charge transports in semiconductor heterostructures and photonics and hyperfine interaction in semiconductor nanostructures.

Open PhD position

A PhD position is open at the Nanophysics Center, Reykjavik University, for three years, within a project on computational quantum mechanics and electron dynamics in nanowires. A suitable candidate should be familiar with basic quantum mechanics, electrodynamics, and computational programming, and should be enthusiastic about research in nanoscience. Specifically the research project will be on theoretical modeling of electromagnetic absorption and emission by core/shell nanowires. A Master degree in physics, chemistry, materials science, nanotechnology, or in a related field, is necessary. The PhD position will be financed by the Icelandic Research Fund. Interested candidates should send a CV, a letter of intent, and two letters of recommendation to Andrei Manolescu, e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots.
