Postdoctoral position on the Theory of Ultracold Quantum Gases

Leibniz University Hannover


December 31, 2021

Job overview


The research group on Ultracold Quantum Gases at the Institute of Theoretical Physics of the Leibniz University of Hannover (Prof. Luis Santos) invites applications for a postdoctoral position on the theory of ultra-cold quantum gases. The position is initially for two years, with the possibility of prolonging it for an additional year. We would like to cover the position as soon as possible, however the time of joining is negotiable.


Ultracold quantum gases constitute a fascinating research field at the interface between quantum optics, atomic physics, and condensed-matter physics. Our theory group works in a variety of topics in this vibrant area. Possible topics of research include among others the physics of dipolar Bose-Einstein condensates and supersolids, dipolar mixtures, and the non-equilibrium dynamics of many-body quantum systems in optical lattices.

We are part of a vibrant environment, including collaborations with experiments on ultracold atoms, molecules and trapped ions. The team works in an excellent national and international network and participates in large collaborative projects, including the Excellence Cluster “QuantumFrontiers“ ( and the Quantum Valley Lower Saxony (
