PhD position available

Saarbrücken, Germany
31 July, 2013

A PhD position is available at the Quantum Physics group of Saarland University, in Saarbrücken, Germany. The research is supervised by Dr. Marc Bienert and takes place in the theory group of Prof. Dr. Giovanna Morigi.

The PhD project "Optomechanical Cavity QED with Color Centres in Diamond" is funded by the DFG (German Research Foundation) and runs for 3 years. The aim of the project is to develop a theoretical description of optomechanical crystals in diamond interacting with single defect centers. More information can be found at the group's page:

PhD position: Quantum Foundations / Particle Physics

Siegen, Germany
22 March, 2013

We are looking for a motivated PhD student who is interested to work at the interface between the foundations of quantum mechanics and particle physics. The project aims at the investigation of possible Bell inequality violations in systems of neutral mesons and the modeling of the relevant decay processes with methods from quantum optics.
