ct.qmat is a strategic alliance of two of the world’s leading quantum matter research institutions based in Würzburg & Dresden, Germany. Its aims are to develop a systematic understanding of topological phenomena in quantum physics, to find and design materials in which these phenomena can be observed in the laboratory, and to identify and test initial applications of these novel materials.

Applications are invited from new or recent doctoral recipients in the areas of Electronic Quantum Materials, Quantum Magnetism, and Topological Photonics.

Successful candidates will join a team of nearly 400 physicists, chemists, and materials scientists from 38 nations. They will have access to state-of-the-art research infrastructure based in two cities and benefit from a powerful network made up of two universities and five distinguished research institutes of the Max Planck Society, the Helmholtz Association, and the Leibniz Association.

Applications should be submitted to jobs.ct.qmat@listserv.dfn.de, enclosing a cover letter, your CV, a list of publications, and outlining your main interests and proposed field of research. Applications arriving before April 30, 2023, will be considered preferentially; recruiting will continue until positions are filled. The positions provide comprehensive social security benefits, including health insurance.
