Instabilities are found in an interacting electron gas confined in a three-dimensional quantum dot as a function of magnetic field. These instabilities involve transitions between one-, two and three-dimensional electron systems. In contrast to what is found for the non-interacting electron case, these dimensional instabilities can occur is essentially isotropic quantum dots.
