PhD & postdoc positions at LMU Munich 

We are offering multiple PhD & postdoctoral positions to well-qualified, highly motivated,  and dynamic young scientists who wish to enhance their scientific career in a stimulating  environment. The successful candidates will be joining the group led by Christian Schilling  which is part of the Chair of Theoretical Physics — Quantum Matter together with Ulrich Schollwöck, Lode Pollet and Fabian Grusdt. The research of our group is concerned with the interface of Quantum Information Theory and Quantum Many-Body Physics. We resort to analytic approaches partly complemented by computational studies to gain universal insights into interacting quantum many-body systems. A particular emphasis lies on the concept of reduced density matrices and the ground state problem. 

Applications are welcomed for the following related long-term research programs:

P1:   Tensor network methods for quantum chemistry

P2:   Foundation of quantum computing: fermionic systems 

P3:   Quantum information theory for fermions

P4:   Foundation of functional theories & N-representability problem

The offered positions are related to the cluster of excellence “Munich Center for Quantum Science and Technology’’

and are funded through the Munich Quantum Valley

and the German research foundation

Various postdoc positions are initially for 2 years.

Application deadline: 31 May 2022

Starting date: flexible
