The University of Konstanz is one of the 11 German "Universities of Excellence".
Applications are invited for one
PhD Position in Theoretical Physics (Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher)
(Salary Scale TV-L 13 / 75%, 3 years)
in Condensed Matter Theory and Quantum Information.
The position is available for three years in Theoretical Physics at the Department of Physics. The group is associated with the Collaborative Research Center SFB 767 "Controlled Nanosystems" and the Center for Applied Photonics (CAP) at the University of Konstanz.
