PhD Positions

We are currently accepting applications for two PhD positions in our group. You do not need to speak German to get a position, but it will make your life easier, if you are willing to learn it. Notice that the project is predefined for the first one, but not for the second one.

#8035

PhD student position (30 hours/week) at the Institute for Experimental Physics starting Sept  15 2014 for 3 years. The position is with the Photonics Group (http://www.uibk.ac.at/exphys/photonik) and is intended for our work on fundamental tests of quantum mechanics using multipath interferometry.

The main tasks include research, teaching, publications and supervision of undergraduate students, administrative duties, and postgraduate training.

Candidates must have completed a master’s degree or equivalent in physics a good command of the English language. They should have scientific experience in experimental quantum interferometry, single-photon sources and detectors, and entangled photon pairs. Experience in the operation of lasers and in the design and assembly of quantum optical setups is required. The ability to work in a team and creativity in problem solving is important.

Please apply through the University's job portal. The University of Innsbruck is committed to increasing the percentage of female employees, especially in leading positions and therefore explicitly invites women to apply. In the case of equivalent qualifications, women will be given preference.

#8037

PhD student position (30 hours/week) at the Institute for Experimental Physics starting Sept. 15 2014 for 3 years. The position is with the Photonics Group (http://www.uibk.ac.at/exphys/photonik). The successful candidate could work within either of our quantum dot, polariton, or waveguide projects.

The main tasks include research, teaching, publications and supervision of undergraduate students, administrative duties, and postgraduate training.

Candidates must have completed a master’s degree or equivalent in physics a good command of the English language. They should have scientific experience in experimental quantum optics.  Experience in the operation of lasers, single-photon detectors and/or cryostates are advantageous. The ability to work in a team and creativity in problem solving is important.
