We address the electronic resonant transport in the presence of a transverse magnetic field through the single level of a suspended carbon nanotube acting as a quantum oscillator. We predict a negative magneto-conductance with a magnetic-field–induced narrowing of the resonance line and a reduction of the conductance peak when the nanotube is asymmetrically contacted to the leads. At finite bias voltage we study the threshold for phonon-assisted transport.
