PhD Position in Quantum Control & Gravitational Quantum Physics (m/f/d, 75% of an E 13 TV-L position funded by the European project QuCoM).

Job type: 


Application deadline: 

Monday, August 1, 2022

The position will be offered for three years starting from October 2022 and will have as topic theoretical research in quantum control theory with applications to quantum gravitational physics and quantum optomechanics.

The successful candidate will work in the group of Prof. Daniel Braun at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of Tübingen, Germany. We are a very active, internationally visible, and connected research group with broad research interests in quantum metrology, quantum information theory, and quantum optics. We value open discussions, eagerness to learn, and creative thinking, driven by a quest for deep understanding.

We are looking for highly motivated candidates with excellent analytical skills, a sound working knowledge of quantum mechanics, and an interest in problems at the interface between quantum physics and gravity. The ideal candidate has previous working experience in quantum optics or quantum field theory (with a good understanding of quantum information concepts and tools). The formal hiring requirement is a master's degree in physics or an equivalent degree.

Interested candidates are asked to send a CV (including a list of publications, if any) and a transcript of academic records to, and arrange for two letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address.

Disabled persons will be preferred in case of equal qualifications. The University of Tübingen seeks to raise the number of women in research and therefore urges qualified women to apply.

We will consider all applications received up to and including Monday 1 August 2022.
