2 PhD positions in intense laser-matter interaction
University of Rostock, Institute of Physics
February 27, 2018
In the research group „Quantum Theory & Many-Particle Systems“ at the University of Rostock, Germany, pending budgetary approval, two PhD positions will be available for three years each (extension possible), starting May 2018 at the earliest.
Applicants should have a Master degree in Physics. The job holders are supposed to work on the theory of intense laser-matter interaction, potentially focused on, e.g., condensed matter in intense laser fields, time-dependent many-body theory beyond linear response, reduced density matrices or the further development of time-dependent density functional theory for the description of laser-driven systems, or topological effects in strong-field physics. Teaching and supervision of Bachelor and Master students is expected.
Only applications consisting of a single PDF file are accepted. Application files of size less than 2MB might be sent directly to email@example.com. Only links to larger PDFs might be sent to the same email address. Application deadline is March 31, 2018.
About University of Rostock, Institute of Physics
The University of Rostock – Traditio et Innovatio
Tradition and innovation are the trademarks of our almost 600-year history. Education and research started in Rostock even 73 years before Columbus discovered America as the university was founded already in 1419. A lot has changed in the meantime. Such as the technical faculty founded in 1951 - the first one ever established at a classical university. Plenty of new, modern buildings, as the completely new campus for natural sciences in the district Suedstadt, represent the innovative strength and modernity of our university.
Today, with about 14,000 students and 2,933 staff members (in the medical care sector: 2,926), the University of Rostock offers fascinating perspectives into nearly all scientific fields. With the four profile lines Life, Light and Matter / Maritime Systems / Aging Science and Humanities / Knowledge – Culture – Transformation, the University of Rostock has at its disposal excellent interdisciplinary research fields in the areas of natural and technological sciences, medicine, life sciences, humanities and cultural studies. The standard set for all our actions: we want to impress with our performance.
The... Hanseatic university city of Rostock is a great place to study, research and live. The economic and scientific centre of the North-East is very enticing, with all the atmosphere of a major city in the middle of one of the most beautiful tourist areas in Germany.
