Current vacancies in NanoLund research groups

All positions are regularly posted in the Lund University recruitment system. Vacancy announcements within NanoLund are listed below. To apply for a position, click the Login and apply button in the vacancy announcement, and you will be guided to the recruitment system.

The Department of Physics at Lund University, Faculty of Engineering, invites applications for a position as Assistant Professor in Physics with specialization in semiconductor optics. The position is located at the Division of Solid State Physics, where extensive research is conducted centered on various aspects of nanophysics, ranging from materials science to quantum physics to various applications. The division, which consists of about 90 people, is a central part of NanoLund, the major interdisciplinary research environment within nanoscience and nanotechnology at Lund University. The division is also strongly involved in the undergraduate education, especially within the “Engineering Nanoscience” program.

The subject area will be embedded into the existing network of close collaboration at NanoLund, including groups with internationally leading expertise in the synthesis, processing and characterization of III-V and III-Nitride materials. This includes access to a full range of equipment for semiconductor nanofabrication at Lund Nano Lab, a central key facility for fabrication of material and devices on the nanoscale.

Subject description

The topic should be interpreted broadly in the field of light and semiconductor-based nanostructures. This includes both fundamental semiconductor physics, for example exciton and polariton physics in low-dimensional structures, as well as applications, for example in photonics and quantum technology. A prerequisite is that the research focus links to existing research within the strategic research area NanoLund (, preferably by utilizing the expertise in epitaxial growth of semiconductors that exists at Lund University.
