Open PhD Positions

We are looking for talented PhD students who are interested in working on topological phases of matter and their use in quantum information processing. One position in the context of CRC 183 Entangled States of Matter can be filled at any time. Assuming final approval, a second PhD position will start in January 2019 in the context of CRC 910 Control of self-organizing nonlinear systems (Project title: Feedback control for quantum information processing). If you are interested in these positions, please send an informal but informative email to vonoppen_AT_physik.fu-berlin.de
