Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Frankfurt Institute for Theoretical Physics
2 PhD positions
At the Institute for Theoretical Physics of Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Frankfurt under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Walter Hofstetter 2 PhD positions (salary level E13, 75%) will be available from August 1st, 2010 for a total duration of three years. Both positions are part of the DFG Research Unit FOR 801 `Strong Correlations in Multiflavor Quantum Gases`. For more information see www.for801.de.
The ideal candidate is expected to have a masters degree (or equivalent) in theoretical condensed matter physics or quantum optics. Research experience in the fields of ultracold atomic physics, strongly correlated electrons or numerical simulations of strongly interacting quantum many-particle systems would be beneficial. Furthermore, the successful candidate should have the capability to work independently and show dedication to the research projects of the unit.
In the summer of 2005, Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University was awarded the basic certificate of the audit Family-Friendly University. Great importance is attached to the family-friendly structuring of the university work-stream. Employees will be supported in their efforts to combine their professional life with family duties. In this context, part-time employment and models of job-sharing are facilitated. Candidates returning to work after maternity/paternity leave are encouraged to apply for re-employment. Frankfurt University is committed to equal opportunities and selection on merit. Female candidates are especially encouraged to apply. Precedence will be given to handicapped candidates at equal qualification.
The deadline for applications is July 25th, 2010. Applicants should send their curriculum vitae and a description of their research interests to:
Prof. Dr. Walter Hofstetter, Institut für Theoretische Physik der Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität, Campus Riedberg, Max-von-Laue-Str. 1, 60438 Frankfurt am Main.
