At TU Dresden, Faculty of Science,  the newly established Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 1143 "Correlated Magnetism: From Frustration To Topology" invites applications, subject to granted funds, for
19 members of academic staff / PhD positions
(When the personal conditions have been met employees are remunerated in salary group E 13 TV-L.)
which entail 50% -- 75% of the fulltime weekly hours. The positions are available immediately fixed-term for a duration of 3 years. The period of employment is governed by § 2 Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG).
Tasks: The SFB is devoted to the investigation of materials and models with strong electronic correlations, focusing on frustrated magnetism and topological states of matter. Positions are available in the fields: Experimental Condensed Matter Physics (11 positions), Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics (6 positions), Inorganic Chemistry (2 positions).
Scientific tasks within the SFB encompass synthesis of novel materials, crystal growth, measurements of thermodynamic and transport properties, also under extreme conditions, neutron and electron spectroscopy, scanning probe microscopy and spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance measurements, numerical simulations of quantum spin systems, and calculations of thermodynamic and transport properties using microscopic or field-theoretic methods. We expect a close collaboration with scientific partners and the supervision of Bachelor and Master thesis projects.
Requirements: university degree preferentially in physics or chemistry; motivation for doing outstanding basic research both independently and in collaborations; proficiency in German or English; ideally experience with experiments or modeling of magnetic materials.
We offer dedicated mentoring in an active scientific environment with excellent infrastructure.
Further information concerning the SFB and the advertised positions are available on the web via http://tu-dresden.de/sfb1143.
Applications from women are particularly welcome. The same applies to people with disabilities.
Please send your application with CV, overview of research interests, list of publications, copy of documentation of the highest academic degree earned, and the names and addresses of at least two possible references until 09.01.2015 (stamped arrival date of the university central mail service applies) preferably by email as a single pdf document to: sfb1143@tu-dresden.de (Please note: We are currently not able to receive electronically signed and encrypted data) or by regular mail to: TU Dresden, Fakultät Mathematik und Naturwissenschaften, Fachrichtung Physik, Institut für Theoretische Physik, Herrn Prof. Dr. Matthias Vojta, 01062 Dresden. Please submit copies only, as your application will not be returned to you.
