PhD position in theoretical quantum many-body physics

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Monday, February 22, 2021

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to work on theoretical aspects related to quantum many-body physics. Research topics can include:

- non-equilibrium processes in synthetic quantum matter

- dynamical phases in light-matter systems

- fluctuations and correlations in open quantum systems

- application of advanced numerical methods (e.g. machine learning or tensor networks) to the dynamics of open and closed quantum systems

- quantum cellular automata and quantum enhanced neural network designs

The research group 'Theoretical Atomic Physics and Synthetic Quantum Systems' ( is embedded in the lively environment of the 'Center for Quantum Science' of the University of Tübingen, which includes groups working on cold atoms experiments as well as mathematical and theoretical physics. The successful applicant is expected to actively engage in the activities of the Center.

Candidates need to have a strong background in theoretical physics, a strong academic record, commitment, and a motivation to work hard.

Applications should include a cover letter (including motivation for applying), a CV (including publication list), a copy of the master thesis and transcripts (all collated in a single pdf file). Applicants should also arrange for at least one recommendation letter. All documents shall be sent to

The offered position (2/3 E13) will run for at least 3 years. Review of the applications will begin on February 22nd 2021 until the position is filled. The starting date is flexible but can be as soon as possible.
