Six PhD positions in quantum physics

CRC 183 (theory) (f/m/x)CRC 183 | Entangled States of Matter

We are one of the largest and oldest universities in Europe and one of the most important employers in our region. Our broad range of subjects, the dynamic development of our main research areas and our central location in Cologne make us attractive for students and researchers from around the world. We offer a wide range of career opportunities in science, technology, and administration.

The collaborative research center “Entangled States of Matter” (CRC183) exploits the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics to engineer condensed matter systems that materialize entanglement in a tangible manner. The following three concepts define our research: (i) Topological quantum matter, (ii) Quantum information, (iii) Quantum device. Our CRC runs as a joint venture of the Center of Quantum Devices in Copenhagen, the Dahlem Center for Complex Quantum Systems at FU Berlin, the Cologne Institute for Theoretical Physics and the Condensed Matter Department of the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot, Israel. More information can be found here:
