We are seeking candidates for full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant positions within Professor Ares’ research group at the Department of Engineering Science (Central Oxford). The posts are funded by an ERC starting grant and are fixed-term to the 31st March 2026.

The development of quantum devices that combine both electronic and mechanical degrees of freedom has opened the door to the study of thermodynamic processes in these devices. The interplay between different degrees of freedom might be a key tool to access thermodynamic quantities at the nanoscale.

The successful candidates will fabricate devices, characterize them at low temperatures and conduct experiments that will elucidate thermodynamic quantities such as work and heat. In collaboration with theorists, you will also help design new ambitious experiments.

You should possess a Ph.D/D.Phil (or be near completion*) in a relevant subject. You should have experimental expertise in electrical characterisation of quantum devices at cryogenic temperatures and have a strong background in the theory of quantum devices
