PhD and postdoctoral positions at Institute for Theoretical Physics, Ulm

The Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of Ulm invites applications for PhD and postdoctoral positions in theoretical quantum physics.

Several openings will be available in the recently awarded 5 year Reinhart Koselleck Project of the German Research Council to Prof Martin Plenio for which we are seeking applicants with an interest in

- signal processing methods applied to nanoscale NMR and quantum sensing,
- quantum sensing with colour centers in diamond, and
- DNP based on diamond quantum technologies.

Furthermore, we are seeking applicants to work in the general areas of the group

- the theory of quantum information, entanglement and coherence, and thermodynamics,
- diamond quantum technologies for sensing, QIP and simulation and medical imaging,
- open quantum systems and control,
- quantum optics with a focus on time-multiplexed optical networks,
- quantum effects in biology,
- quantum many body systems and control, and
- quantum simulators in atomic, molecular and optical systems.

in collaboration with Prof. Susana Huelga

As a member of the Institute of Theoretical Physics, you will be a part of a diverse world-leading team and will have the opportunity to work on challenging and important problems in quantum physics including the above-mentioned topics of focus. The group has a longstanding track record of successful cooperation with experimental teams in and out of Ulm. Collaborations within the framework on the Center for Integrated Quantum Science and Technology (IQST including local start-up NVision Imaging Technologies are also encouraged.

Applications can be submitted preferably before 01 September 2019 or otherwise anytime throughout the year at .
