Job Description/Responsibility

  • The newly established Dresden-Würzburg Center for Topological Quantum Matter Research invites applications for
  • Research Associates within the Hallwachs-Röntgen Postdoc Program
    (Subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to TV-L)
  • The positions are available immediately fixed-term for a duration of three years. The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschafts zeitvertrags gesetz - WissZeitVG). The positions offer the chance to obtain further academic qualification.
  • The Hallwachs-Röntgen Postdoc Program is intended to form a link between two of the most active research environments on topological condensed matter physics worldwide – the Technische Universität Dresden together with its external research institutes (Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, Leibniz-Institut für Festkörper- und Werkstoffforschung, Max-Planck-Institut für Physik komplexer Systeme, Max-Planck-Institut für Chemische Physik fester Stoffe) and the Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg.
  • Information about participating research groups can be found here:

    SFB1170 @ Würzburg:
    Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf:
    Leibniz-Institut für Festkörper- und Werkstoffforschung:

    Max-Planck-Institut für Chemische Physik fester Stoffe:
  • Tasks: The successful candidate is expected to perform ground-breaking research in the area of topological quantum physics, either experimental or theoretical. They will spend 2 years at one partner location (either Dresden or Würzburg) and the remaining year with the other partner. Therefore, he/she will be able to directly profit from interactions with the two complementary research environments.
  • Requirements: We are looking for exceptional young scientists of great promise and expect the following: university and recently awarded doctoral degree in physics (or a closely related discipline); in-depth research experience in topological physics, quantum materials, and/or correlated-electron physics; very good written and oral English language skills (knowledge of the German language is not a prerequisite); ability to work independently and in a team.
  • Applications from women are particularly welcome. The same applies to people with disabilities.

About the Company

Company Name : Technischen Universität Dresden
Address : , Aach, GERMANY

Company Profile: The TU Dresden (abbreviated as TUD and often mistakenly translated[a] from German as Dresden University of Technology) is a public research university, the largest institute of higher education in the city of Dresden, the largest university in Saxony and one of the 10 largest universities in Germany with 37,134 students as of 2013.[3] It ranks among the best universities of engineering and technology in Germany.[4] The name Technische Universität Dresden has only been used since 1961; the history of the university, however, goes back nearly 200 years to 1828. This makes it one of the oldest colleges of technology in Germany, and one of the country’s oldest universities, which in German today refers to institutes of higher education that cover the entire curriculum. The university is a member of TU9, a consortium of the nine leading German Institutes of Technology. The university is one of eleven German universities which succeeded in the Excellence Initiative in 2012, thus getting the title of a "University of Excellence". The TU Dresden succeeded in all three rounds of the German Universities Excellence Initiative (Future Concept, Graduate Schools, Clusters of Excellence).
