The positions are in the group of Dimitris G. Angelakis (www.dimitrisangelakis.org). We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a strong research background and a PhD in theoretical quantum optics/physics and/or quantum information and/or quantum many-body physics/quantum condensed matter.
Many-body physics with photons and polaritons is a highly interdisciplinary field, merging diverse areas such as nano-photonics, quantum optics, condensed matter physics, and quantum technologies. The inherent accessibility to local observables, and the ability to probe out-of-equilibrium phenomena make driven many-body photonic systems especially promising for a variety of applications in quantum simulations and quantum computing, as well as in materials science and optical circuitry.
PhD Positions in Many-Body Theory of Ultra-cold Atoms
Center for Optical Quantum Technologies, University of Hamburg, Germany
We offer three PhD positions, available immediately, at the newly created Center for Optical Quantum Technologies (ZOQ). In a vibrant, communicative environment, we study a wide range of quantum phenomena, from technological aspects of ultra-cold atom systems to fundamental questions of many-body theory. We use both analytical approaches, e.g. field-theoretic descriptions, as well as numerical methods, such as simulations.
