PhD Position at the International Research Training Group "Cold Controlled Ensembles of Atoms and Molecules"
Published(177 days ago)
Deadline for applications(142 days ago)
The DFG-funded International Research Training Group "Cold Controlled Ensembles of
Atoms and Molecules" offers
1 PhD Position
Part-time position (75%), start date: 01.05.2018
The experimental project is aimed at studying quantum-state-controlled Penning collisions
between lithium atoms and metastable helium atoms at low collision energies,
e.g., to study the influence of electron-spin polarization on the reaction rate and to
observe quantum resonance effects. For this, we use an experimental apparatus which
consists of a metastable helium discharge source and a magneto-optical trap (MOT) for
ultracold lithium atoms.
We are looking for excellent MSc graduates with a strong background in experimental
Atomic and Molecular Physics or Physical Chemistry. Experience in the use of diode
lasers and high-vacuum equipment is advantageous.
The PhD program, a collaboration with the University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada,
offers dual supervision by researchers from both universities and an extended stay
at the UBC in Vancouver. No tuition fees.
Application should include following documents: a letter of motivation, a CV, a list
of publications (if available), certificates of the university degree (with grades) and
transcripts of record, master/diploma certificate (with grades) and the contact details of
at least two referees.
The salary will be determined in accordance with TV-L E13.
Please send in a complete and convincing application with all relevant supporting documents,
including the reference number 10711, by 28.02.2018 at the latest. Please send
your application to the following address in written or electronic form:
