PhD and Master Thesis
We offer positions to PhD and Master students with exceptional CV. They should be among the 5% top students in their university and have some extraordinary achievements (like, e.g., in physics/mathematics olympiads). For the Master students we can only offer financial help if they have carried out their studies outside the Munich area. The PhD/Master degrees are officially awarded by the Technical University of Munich. More details, requirements, etc.
PhD Survival Tips
Dr. Caroline de Groot completed her doctoral research at our Theory division!
We offer positions for exceptional researchers at the postdoc level with experience in the subjects mentioned above. They should carry out independent research at the highest level. Each postdoc position comes with its own budget, which will include travel allowances and a computer/laptop.
Candidates for a postdoc position should apply here.
Junior research groups
The group is also open to senior postdocs/researchers with an extraordinary CV to create an independent Junior Research Group in Quantum Information or Quantum Optics. The candidates should apply for an ERC starting grant, to the Junior Research program of the Max Planck Society or to a similar position. For more information, please contact directly Prof. Cirac and send him your CV.
