PhD position in Theoretical Physics at University of Hamburg, Germany

The group of Prof. Dr. Daria Gorelova at I. Institute for Theoretical Physics, Universität Hamburg, Germany welcomes applications for a joint PhD position between Universität Hamburg and EuXFEL. A candidate will theoretically describe state-of-the-art experiments, which can be performed at Free-Electron Lasers such as EuXFEL in Hamburg. In particular, the focus would be on the quantum-mechanical description of time-resolved photoelectron momentum microscopy of charge transfer dynamics at hybrid interfaces.

This task would include computations with quantum-mechanical packages, writing own computational codes and analytical work. A candidate would have to teach 2 hours per week, teaching in English is, in principle, possible.

Applicants should have or be expecting to achieve a Master Degree or equivalent in physics or in a related field before the start date. Good English skills, spoken and written, are mandatory. Previous research experience in theoretical physics or in theoretical chemistry is highly desirable. Experience in simulations using a quantum-mechanical software package and/or code development to describe physical problems is a plus.

The salary level is 0.75 of TV-L 13. The working contract is for three years, the earliest possible starting date is October, 1st 2022. Please see the link for additional details:
