Freie Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin - Fachbereich Physik - Institut für Theoretische Physik

Postdoc Position in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics
Earliest starting date: September 2024
The position is initially limited to 2 years, with the possibility to extend by one more year (subject to available funding).
Salary: Based on the salary group 13 TV-L FU.

The postdoc position is located in the Emmy-Noether group "Microscale and Nanoscale Physics of Topological Metals" led by Maxim Breitkreiz (https://www.physik.fu- The group is part of the Dahlem Center for Complex Quantum Systems (DCCQS), which research focus is quantum-theoretical condensed matter physics in its fullest range ( The group is involved in the transregional Collaborative Research Center CRC 183 "Entangled States of Matter", which connects scientists of the DCCQS, Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel), University of Copenhagen (Denmark), and University of Cologne ( The embedding of the postdoc position in the DCCQS and the CRC offers an excellent research environment with particularly diverse opportunities for a creative research practice with international collaborations and research residencies.
