Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Dres­den-Würz­burg Cen­ter for Topo­lo­gi­cal Quan­tum Mat­ter Rese­arch

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Rese­arch Asso­cia­tes wit­hin the
Hall­wachs-Rönt­gen Post­doc Pro­gram

(Sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­n­e­ra­ted accord­ing to TV-L)
The posi­ti­ons are avail­able imme­dia­tely fixed-term for a dura­tion of three years. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts-zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - Wiss­ZeitVG). The posi­ti­ons offer the chance to obtain fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion.
The Hall­wachs-Rönt­gen Post­doc Pro­gram is inten­ded to form a link bet­ween two of the most active rese­arch envi­ron­ments on topo­lo­gi­cal con­den­sed mat­ter phy­sics world­wide – the Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den toge­ther with its exter­nal rese­arch insti­tu­tes (Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dres­den-Ros­sen­dorf, Leib­niz-Insti­tut für Fest­kör­per- und Werk­stoff­for­schung, Max-Planck-Insti­tut für Phy­sik kom­ple­xer Sys­teme, Max-Planck-Insti­tut für Che­mi­sche Phy­sik fes­ter Stoffe) and the Julius-Maxi­mi­li­ans-Uni­ver­si­tät Würz­burg.

Work­ing field:

The suc­cess­ful can­di­date is expec­ted to per­form ground-brea­king rese­arch in the area of topo­lo­gi­cal quan­tum phy­sics, eit­her expe­ri­men­tal or theo­re­ti­cal. They will spend 2 years at one part­ner loca­tion (eit­her Dres­den or Würz­burg) and the remai­ning year with the other part­ner. The­re­fore, he/she will be able to directly pro­fit from inter­ac­tions with the two com­ple­men­tary rese­arch envi­ron­ments.


We are loo­king for excep­tio­nal young sci­en­tists of great pro­mise and expect the fol­lo­wing: uni­ver­sity and recently awar­ded doc­to­ral degree in phy­sics (or a clo­sely rela­ted disci­pline); in-depth rese­arch expe­ri­ence in topo­lo­gi­cal phy­sics, quan­tum mate­ri­als, and/or cor­re­la­ted-elec­tron phy­sics; very good writ­ten and oral Eng­lish lan­guage skills (know­ledge of the Ger­man lan­guage is not a pre­re­qui­site); ability to work inde­pendently and in a team.

How to ap­ply:

App­li­ca­ti­ons from women are par­ti­cu­larly wel­come. The same app­lies to people with disa­bi­li­ties.
Please send your app­li­ca­tion docu­ments (CV, publi­ca­tion list, rese­arch state­ment, three refe­ren­ces) pre­fe­r­a­bly as a sin­gle pdf docu­ment to and (Please note: We are cur­rently not able to receive elec­tro­ni­cally signed and encryp­ted data) or alter­na­tively by regu­lar mail to TU Dres­den, Fakul­tät Mathe­ma­tik und Natur­wis­sen­schaf­ten, Insti­tut für Theo­re­ti­sche Phy­sik, Herrn Prof. Dr. Mat­thias Vojta, 01062 Dres­den or to Uni­ver­si­tät Würz­burg, Phy­si­ka­li­sches Insti­tut, Herrn Prof. Dr. Ralph Cla­es­sen, 97074 Würz­burg. The app­li­ca­tion dead­line is August 31, 2017.
