We are currently recruiting ambitious researchers (six Ph.D. students) in the field of experimental quantum physics in the framework of the Doctoral Programme "Atoms, Light, and Molecules".

If you are inspired by research on experimental quantum physics and have finished your master’s degree in physics with an excellent track record, you may be a candidate for these positions.

Possible research projects are in the laboratories of

-       Prof. Francesca Ferlaino on dipolar quantum gases

-       Prof. Rudolf Grimm on ultracold quantum matter

-       Prof. Hanns-Christoph Nägerl on strongly correlated quantum matter

-       Prof. Tracy Northup on quantum light-matter interfaces

-       Prof. Gregor Weihs on photonics

The FWF-funded Doctoral Programme "Atoms, Light, and Molecules" combines the research opportunities with top level graduate training in a highly collaborative setting. All students in the Programme have the opportunity for research visits abroad for six months as part of their PhD work to build and strengthen international collaborations.

The Doctoral Programme is committed to increasing the percentage of female employees in science and therefore explicitly invites women to apply. Successful candidates will become employees of the University with full social security coverage under Austrian national law. The gross salary for these positions will be about 2.205,-- €/month (14x).

For more information on the research projects please check the group websites ( rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">"> ).

With 28.000 students and more than 4.800 employees the University of Innsbruck represents the largest and most important institution in research and education in western Austria. Located in the heart of the Alps, the University of Innsbruck offers great conditions for successful research and teaching.
