The Abbe Center of Photonics (ACP) and the Abbe School of Photonics (ASP) permanently offer excellent opportunities to achieve academic careers at every degree (Bachelor's, Master's and doctoral degrees). Currently, more than 300 doctoral researchers are educated in ASP's doctoral program. At times, open positions for doctoral studies will be advertised here. ASP offers strong support to acquire postgraduate funding. In addition, a number of open research and teaching positions will be filled following the selection of appropriate candidates.

Please follow the instructions by the most recent calls. Moreover, unsolicited applications can be submitted at any time via our Online Application System.

Announcement: >20 PhD positions for the new DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center "NOA - Nonlinear Optics on Atomic scales" (to be published after May 23, 2019.)

Just recently, many ACP scientists have together defended the CRC proposal "NOA - Nonlinear Optics down to Atomic scales" in front of a peer-review panel and the German Research Foundation (DFG). NOA will focus on exploring fundamental nonlinear processes of light matter interaction in low-dimensional nanostructures, such as atomically thin layers, nanoparticles and -wires, nanostructured surfaces and molecular assemblies. The CRC team further wants to explore quantum phenomena as light-induced tunneling of electrons through metallic nanogaps and field-driven carrier acceleration in plasmonic nanostructures, atomic lattices and 2D-materials and construct new subwavelength-scale materials with tailored high nonlinearity for optical switching and frequency conversion by stacking atomically thin amorphous or crystalline films and employing deep subwavelength field enhancement utilizing nanostructures. The final votum of the peer-review panel is still due. If granted, more than 20 PhD positions will be announced. Please make sure to check this website for an update after May 23, 2019.

1 PhD position on "Ultrafast Optical Spectroscopy of 2D Heterostructures" (published April 2019)

The new group of Ultrafast Optical Spectroscopy of Jun.-Prof. Giancarlo Soavi at the Intitute of Solid State Physics is offering a PhD position on Ultrafast Optical Spectroscopy of 2D Heterostructures. Requirements: Master's or equivalent degree in physics, photonics or a comparable qualifcation. Further details and the official announcement can be found here.

1 PhD position on "Nanocharacterization of biomaterials" (published February 2019)

Raman spectroscopy and scanning probe methods are combined ("TERS microscopy") for the molecular characterization of protein or DNA-based biological systems, even down to individual building blocks such as single amino acids or nucleobases. In addition to this structural elucidation, a systematic development of biocompatible sample preparation is a major target. For this project, a PhD student position is to be filled from April 1, 2019. Requirements: Master's or diploma degree in (bio)chemistry or physics. Experience with chemical/bio-chemical working methods or spectroscopic methods is an advantage. Further details and the official announcement can be found here.

1 PhD position on "Electronic structure and strong-field calculations for atoms and ions (published January 2019)

The Relativistic Quantum Dynamics Group of Prof. Stephan Fritzsche at the Institute of Theoretical Physics is offering a PhD position under the topic mentioned in the header. For more details, please review the position announcemnet and contact directly.
