We are looking for a motivated PhD student who is interested to work at the interface between the foundations of quantum mechanics and particle physics. The project aims at the investigation of possible Bell inequality violations in systems of neutral mesons and the modeling of the relevant decay processes with methods from quantum optics.
The research project is a collaboration between the the groups of Otfried Guehne (quantum information theory) and Thomas Mannel (theoretical particle physics) in Siegen, Germany. Applicants are expected to have a very good master/diploma in physics, experience in theoretical physics and interest in foundational questions of quantum mechanics.
For further information, please see our webpage or contact me directly via email. The deadline for applications is 22nd of March 2013, later applications are considered until the position is filled.
