PhD positions

We are inviting applications for PhD-student positions, in the areas of ultracold gases. Some of the positions are available within the COHERENCE (
Cooperativity in Highly Excited Rydberg Ensembles - Control and Entanglement) Initial Training Network, funded by Marie Curie Actions within the FP7 People Program of the European Commission. The network provides excellent training conditions and offer unique cooperation opportunities with experimental and theoretical leading groups across Europe through regularly held workshops, short-term exchange visits as well as a 6-month secondment for each recruited student.
The selected applicant will work in the newly emerging and rapidly evolving field of ultracold Rydberg gases. The projects involve computational and analytical studies bridging the areas of long-range interacting quantum many-body systems, quantum and nonlinear optics as well as quantum information.
Experience in scientific programming and/or with one of the topics above is desirable, although not mandatory. The Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems provides cutting-edge computing resources and an inspiring research environment through its unique visitor program that offers ample opportunities to interact with scientists from all over the world.
Applications (CV, brief description of previous work and at least one letter of reference) should be sent to

PhD positions

The group “Complex Dynamics in Cold Gases” invites applications for a PhD-student position. We are looking for candidates interested in theoretical work on ultracold degenerate gases. The project will involve numerical and analytical work on dynamical effects of long-range interactions, as recently realized in ion-BEC mixtures or ultracold molecules. Subject related experience and previous contact with scientific programming is helpful, but not mandatory.
The institute, located in a modern building, provides excellent working conditions and computing resources. Its active visitor program and regularly held workshops create a productive environment and offer plenty of opportunities to interact with scientists from all over the world.
