The Institute of Solid State Physics, light & matter Group of Prof. Dr. Ilja
Gerhardt, invites applications for the position of a Doctoral Researcher / PhD
Student (m/f/d) in Single Molecule Quantum Optics (Salary Scale 13 TV-L, 50
%) starting as soon as possible. The position is limited to 3 years.
The light & matter group in Hannover deals with high brightness single photon
sources, atomic vapors, and quantum optics. These tools are used for
fundamental Science, precision sensing and microscopy. This allows for novel
concepts in nano-science and spectroscopy. We combine fundamental research
with quantum technologies.
