Postdoctoral position in condensed matter and quantum information theory

We are currently offering an (extendable) 3-year postdoctoral position
to a highly motivated and well-qualified young researcher who intends
to enhance his or her career on the intersection of condensed matter
theory and quantum information science. The successful candidate will
work as part of the research group led by Jens Eisert at the FU
Berlin. For an overview of research activities of the group, see

We are a leading research group with a culture of open discussion,
creative interdisciplinary thought and substantial international
collaborations. Potential research topics include the following:

- Tensor network approaches to studying condensed matter systems,
- notions of topological order,
- entanglement theory,
- topological quantum computing and quantum memories.

The full E13 position will be financed by the CRC 183 on entangled
states of matter, with Berlin, Cologne, Copenhagen, and the Weizmann
Institute being partners. This newly installed network will contribute
to the stimulating research environment, and all network activities
will be available to the candidate. For first activities of this
research network, see

Applicants must have demonstrated excellent research accomplishments
in the past. Candidates must hold a PhD degree in physics or
mathematics or should obtain such a degree in the near future.
Interested candidates are invited to submit

- a letter indicating their main research interests,
- a detailed curriculum vitae,
- a list of publications,
- the electronic (email) contact details of three potential referees.

All applications should be sent in electronic form to with the key word "TopologicalBerlin" in the
subject line. Review of the applications will begin after February 28,
2017 and will continue until the positions are filled. Early
submissions are appreciated. The start date would be the soonest
