Postdoctoral Researcher in Quantum Information and Thermodynamics

The institute of Theoretical Nanoelectronics (PGI-2) concerns itself with investigating structure formation in condensed matter, starting on electronic length and time scales while bearing in mind macroscopic consequences. These studies are closely connected in diverse ways with experimental work within the institute, and also with projects in other institutes at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

The main focus of our work is placed on the electronic structure of solids, in particular with regard to their importance in information technology and cooperative phenomena in condensed matter. Research questions here concern dynamic structure formation processes together with the statistical mechanics of order and disorder processes. Special topics in the field of complex fluids deal with the structure and dynamics of soft matter.
We are looking to recruit as soon as possible a
