The collaborative research center “Control and dynamics of quantum materials (CRC1238) at the University of Cologne brings together a team of scientists from experimental and theoretical physics. Our vision is to discover, understand, and control novel collective phenomena and new functionalities in quantum materials arising from the interplay of spin-orbit-coupling, correlations, and topology. More information can be found here.
There are six open PhD positions within CRC1238: - Neutron scattering studies on quantum materials (Braden) - STM investigations of topological matter with gate-tuning (Brede, Ando) - Fabrication and measurements of nano-devices based on topological materials (Breunig, Ando) - Magnetic anisotropy control and anomalous Hall effect in oxide heterostructures (Lindfors-Vrejoiu) - Theory of interaction effects in moiré materials (Scherer) - Growth and characterizations of MBE thin films of topological materials (Taskin, Ando)
