[Laboratory]
Quantum Electron Device Research Unit
Cross-Divisional Materials Research Program
RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science
(Unit Leader: Michihisa Yamamoto)

[Research Field]
We develop quantum electron devices based on manipulation and transfer of quantum degrees of freedom in solids. We employ quantum electron optics, where quantum states of propagating electrons are manipulated, and experiments on transfer and manipulation of novel quantum degrees of freedom in atomic-layer materials. These experiments aim to reveal physics of quantum coherence, quantum correlations, and quantum conversions, as guiding principles for quantum electron devices. We also employ state of the art quantum technologies to solve long-standing problems in condensed matter physics from microscopic points of view.

[Job title and Job description]
Job title, available positions:
Postdoctoral Researcher or Research Scientist 1 position

Postdoctoral Researcher is defined as those with a doctoral degree of 5 years or less.
Research Scientist is defined as those with a doctoral degree more than 5 years.

Job description:
The successful candidate will work on quantum transport in semiconductor nanostructures or atomic layer materials. The main focus will most probably be on electron quantum optics experiment where quantum states are controlled in units of a single quasi-particle, or electrical control of quantum degrees of freedom in atomic layer materials. We also welcome research proposals by applicants.
