At the Groeblacher Lab we have a vision: we strive to be an inclusive place where a diverse mix of talented people want to come, to learn, to live their passion and do their best work. We are dedicated to promoting equality, creating a safe environment for everyone, and believe deeply in diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, national origin, age, socioeconomic background and all the other fascinating characteristics that make us different. We truly think diversity is a strength and working in a diverse environment, and being exposed to a variety of perspectives makes us stronger scientists and better human beings.
We are continuously looking for excited and talented (applied) physics and engineering students to join our team. We are interested in people with a curious nature, a healthy appetite for theoretical challenges and the desire to learn new skills in a dynamic environment. It’s a plus if you already have some experience or had exposure to optics, cryogenics, microwave circuits, finite element simulations or microfabrication but not a requirement – these are all techniques you will learn when working with us! In our lab we have a culture of hands-on mentoring, with an eye towards learning and growth.
Currently, we have one open PhD and several Postdoc positions and are always happy to hear from prospective Master students. In particular, we currently have two Master projects available: one is on developing a deep learning algorithm for the design of new optomechanical structures and the other one will focus on a nanobeam spectrometer. Please click the links for more information. We are also looking for a Director for the newly established national testbed for mechanical sensors, fully funded by Quantum Delta NL. If you want to get a glimpse into the work at our lab you can find a short video here and for questions please feel free to send Karin Wilhelm an email. Looking forward to hearing from and about you!
