Two Doctoral Positions in Physics

(part-time 75 %, E 13 TV-L)

Reference number: 2023/154. The start date is September 1, 2023 or by agreement. The position is available for 4 years.

The University of Konstanz is one of the eleven Excellence Universities in Germany. Since 2007 it has been successful in the German Excellence Initiative and its follow-up programme, the Excellence Strategy.

Applications are invited for doctoral researchers starting in September 2023 or upon mutual agreement in Condensed Matter Theory and Quantum Information.

The doctoral researchers will investigate the physics of spin qubits, high-fidelity gate operations, and error mitigation with spin qubits.

Your Responsibilities

    • Research in theoretical modelling and characterization of spin qubits, quantum coherent control, exploration of quantum gate operations, and theoretical investigation of crosstalk effects between active qubits

Your Competencies
