Prof. Dr. Jens Eisert
Institut für Theoretische Physik
Quantum information theory, quantum many-body theory, and quantum optics
We are hiring.
We have an extraordinarily stimulating research environment in Berlin, governed by discussion, blackboard time and interdisciplinary thought. I work on quantum information theory and the study of complex quantum systems. I like to think with the rigor of mathematical physics, yet am pragmatically motivated and like to keep contact with phenomena and applications.
I am professor of theoretical physics at the Freie Universität Berlin, one of Germany's excellent universities (co-affiliated with the department of mathematics). I am also affiliated with the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute and the Helmholtz Center Berlin. This also reflects the rich academic environment provided by Berlin.
In the past, I have been awarded with an ERC Advanced Grant, an ERC Consolidator Grant, a EURYI Award (the predecessor of the ERC Starting Grant), and the Google NISQ Award. In the past, I have worked at Imperial College London, the Institute for Advanced Study Berlin and the University of Potsdam.
