We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join our Emmy-Noether research group in Theoretical Quantum Physics, starting off on 1.August at the LMU Munich. The candidates are expected to have strong analytic skills, ideally with a background in fermionic quantum systems and reduced density matrices. Mathematical Physicists are encouraged to apply as well. Our projects are concerning the interface of Quantum Information Theory and Quantum Many-Body Physics. We resort to analytic approaches partly complemented/guided 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.
