Project Description

We have an opening for a fully-funded PhD positions in Non-Equilibrium Statistical Physics at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of Göttingen, with a flexible starting date from April 2020.

The PhD student would work within the groups of Matthias Krüger and Peter Sollich, on a recently funded collaborative project on “Dynamics of dense mixtures: Kinetic and thermodynamic effects in non-equilibrium fluctuations, phase separation and structure formation”.

All applications received by 11 Feb 2020 will be given full consideration. Later applications will be considered as long as positions remain open. For full details and application procedure please see

Candidates should have an excellent university degree in physics, theoretical physics or a related area, with a demonstrated interest in statistical physics and a strong motivation for research; experience with numerical work will be useful. Fluency in written and spoken
English is expected. German language skills are welcome but not essential as English is the default language for scientific interactions (seminars, group meetings etc).

The Faculty of Physics is embedded into the Göttingen Campus, which provides an ideal environment for interdisciplinary collaboration, both with other University faculties (e.g. chemistry and mathematics) and with Max-Planck-Institutes, particularly the MPI for Dynamics and Self-Organization. For computational work, the Faculty has access to dedicated High Performance Computing facilities.

Please send the following documents (PDF preferred)
1) a cover letter summarizing your background and explaining your interest in, and suitability
for, the positions
2) a full CV with an overview of scientific training so far including any research projects
carried out, and names of two referees
to Prof. Matthias Krüger, email: [Email Address Removed], or Prof. Peter Sollich, email: [Email Address Removed]. Informal enquiries about the positions can be sent to the same email addresses.

Funding Notes

The positions will be for a fixed term of three years, with a flexible starting date from April 2020. Funding will be via a 50% (of full-time) research associate contract on the German public sector scale TVL E-13, with an increase to 75% after the first year subject to good
