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’’ https://www.mcqst.de/about/members/christian-schilling.html

and are funded through the Munich Quantum Valley https://www.munich-quantum-valley.de/

and the German research foundation https://gepris.dfg.de/gepris/projekt/414324924?language=en

Various postdoc positions are initially for 2 years.

Application deadline: 31 May 2022

Starting date: flexible
