The Institute for Theoretical Physics at the Georg-August University of Goettingen invites ap-plications for a

Post-doc position (all genders welcome)
TV-L E 13 (100 %, 39,8 hrs)

in the field of condensed matter theory. The initial appointment starts at September 1st, 2021 and will be for two years and an extension for another year is possible.

The University of Goettingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular em-phasis on fostering career opportunities for female scientists. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply as they are underrepresented in this field. Disabled persons with equivalent aptitude for the position will be favored.

Our group applies and develops computational quantum many-body methods. Possible re-search directions for the candidate include: nonequilibrium dynamics of quantum many-body systems (including ultrafast dynamics in correlated materials, thermalization in closed quantum systems, many-body localization) and topological properties of ultra-cold atomic gases in artificial gauge fields. We are seeking applications from scientists with a MSc/Diploma degree and a recent doctoral degree in theoretical physics with a very good background in condensed
matter theory.Important prerequisites are experiences with at least one of the standard compu-tational methods in quantum many-body physics (exact diagonalization, Lanczos method, density-matrix renormalization group and tensor-network methods in general, quantum Mon-te-Carlo techniques, numerical renormalization group) and a very good command of English. An adequate participation in teaching duties according to the standards at University of Goettingen is expected.

Please send applications with the usual documents (curriculum vitae, one-page description of research interests, list of publications, specification of two references) by e-mail to: Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Institut für Theoretische Physik, Herrn Prof. Dr. Fabian Heidrich-Meisner, Friedrich-Hund-Platz 1, 37077 Göttingen, E-Mail:

The deadline for application will be February 28, 2021. Later applications may be considered as long as the position remains unfilled. If you have any questions, please contact Prof. Dr. Fabian Heidrich-Meisner (email: see above).
