Arkadiusz Wójs - Curriculum Vitae#

Professor Arkadiusz Wójs was born in Wrocław in 1971. In 1990, he graduated from the 3rd Comprehensive School in Wrocław, and in 1995, he completed his master's degree programme in physics at the Faculty of Fundamental Problems of Technology at Wrocław University of Science and Technology. He received his doctorate in physics in 1997 at WUST’s Institute of Physics, and 2002, he received his post-doctoral qualification at WUST’s Faculty of Fundamental Problems of Technology. In 2009, he obtained the title of professor of physical sciences. Since 2017, Professor Wójs has been a member of Academia Europaea, and since 2019, of the Polish Academy of Sciences. As for his professional life, he has been an employee of Wrocław University of Science and Technology since completing his doctoral studies (Assistant Professor - since 1997, Associate Professor - since 2008, Full Professor - since 2014). He has also worked as a visiting researcher at the National Research Council of Canada (MSc and PhD placements), at the University of Tennessee (post-doctoral placement 1997-2000, visiting professor 2001-2007), and at the University of Cambridge (Marie Curie 2008-2010 scholarship holder). He has lectured at universities around the world.

Research interests:

Quantum condensed matter theory, low dimensional systems, quantum dots, quantum Hall effect, composite fermions, graphene.


Award of Polish Minister of Science and Higher Education for outstanding achievement in fundamental research 2011; Rubinowicz Award of Polish Physical Society 2008; Pienkowski Award of Polish Academy of Sciences 2002. Grants include NCN Maestro (major Polish grant; ca. 1M EUR).


Professor Arkadiusz Wójs’s main research area is theoretical and computational solid-state physics. He has co-authored six books (including Quantum Dots, Springer-Verlag 1998 – over 1,200 citations in the Scopus database and Quantum Hall Systems, Oxford University Press 2003) and 180 articles indexed in Scopus, quoted more than 2,200 times by other authors (Hirsch index of 29). Also, his achievements in the field of science include 50 lectures that he has delivered at international scientific conferences.


Discovery that energy levels of self-assembled quantum dots form almost degenerate and equidistant shells of 2D harmonic oscillator (1996); identification of “hidden symmetry” and its manifestation in optical spectra of highly excited quantum dots (1996); prediction of two different bound 2e+h states in two dimensions in magnetic fields: “dark triplet trion” (1995) and “bright triplet trion” (2000); theory of LL mixing in 5/2 FQHE (2010); explanation of spin depolarization of 5/2 FQHE via skyrmions (2010); multi-partite CF theory (2011); understanding of 4/11 FQHE (2014); detection of fractional skyrmions in FQHE (2015).
