Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Wednesday, November 18, 2020

For our group at the University of Siegen (Germany) we are looking for a motivated PhD student
and postdoc in the field of quantum information theory, foundations of quantum theory, and
quantum optics. The group is led by three PIs (Otfried Gühne, Matthias Kleinmann, and Stefan
Nimmrichter) and the research topics include:

  • theory of multiparticle entanglement and quantum steering,
  • temporal quantum correlations and generalized probabilistic theories,
  • thermodynamics of open quantum systems and quantum thermal machines

Applicants for a PhD position are expected to have a MSc in physics, experience in theoretical
physics and interest in foundational questions of quantum mechanics. Applicants for a postdoc
position are expected to have a significant research record in a relevant field. Concerning the
postdoc position, a joint project application within the local Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Action STAR
(see is envisaged. For further information, please see our webpage or
