Post-doc position in spin physics at ETH Zurich

The Spin Physics and Imaging group (Degen Lab at ETH Zurich) is looking for an enthusiastic spin physicist with a strong background in magnetic resonance to join our team as a post-doctoral associate. Our lab is working on combining single nitrogen vacancy spins in diamond (NV centers) with scanning probe microscopy, for application in nanoscale magnetic sensing, imaging, and single spin readout.

Experience that will be valued includes:
- Quantum simulations of spin systems
- Design and application of complex EPR and NMR pulse sequences
- Hands-on experience with microwave and radio-frequency circuitry (we use frequencies up to 20 GHz)
- Experimental or theoretical experience with manipulation and readout of single spin systems, such as optics experiments on quantum dots.

For inquiries and applications please contact Christian Degen at, or visit our website at Please include in your application a recent CV and a short motivation why you are interested in working with us.

The post-doctoral position is funded through the Swiss national competence center in Quantum science and technology (, a platform that offers great opportunities for networking with a number of excellent groups in the field of quantum science.
