The theory group on 'Fundamental Processes in Quantum Physics' at the Center for Optical
Quantum Technologies of the University of Hamburg announces a PhD position in theoretical
Quantum many-body physics with ultracold bosonic systems is at the focus of current experimental
and theoretical research. Understanding the dynamical response of such correlated systems to
external perturbations represents an intriguing perspective in the field. In this project the
PhD student will explore the nonequilibrium quantum dynamics of ultracold ensembles such as
Bose-Bose mixtures or hybrid atomic systems like atom-ions which are relevant to the research
carried out within the cluster of excellence ‘The Hamburg Centre for Ultrafast Imaging’. The
goal of the doctoral training is to gain a deep understanding of the dynamics of such quantum
systems with the aim of engineering novel states of quantum matter by means of state-of-the-art
The Hamburg Centre for Ultrafast Imaging promotes strongly interdisciplinary research (for
further information see http://www.cui.uni-hamburg.de/en/). The centre offers a stimulating
and exciting atmosphere in an international environment and unique opportunities for PhD
students through its graduate school: a rich guest programme, excellent education,
collaboration on forefront research topics and organisation of scientific events are offered.

We are looking for strongly motivated and highly skilled students who share the excitement of
doing theoretical research with a close link to corresponding experiments.
To apply, please send a CV (including the names of 2 potential references) with a
