KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
Your work will be 50% devoted to general technical support for the Nanolab, a KTH joint facility used by some 60 PhD students and postdocs. You will develop special competence with some techniques and be responsible for advanced research equipment, sometimes through active hands-on service and repair. You will also be responsible for training Nanolab users on the equipment. The other 50% of your job will be devoted to a specific research project, which, under the next several years will be fabrication of sensors for quantum-limited measurement with scanning probe microscopy. In this project you will work with nanofabrication of electro-mechanical sensors using superconducting and piezoelectric materials, to be used for microwave measurement of very small mechanical forces.
