2 Phd positions are available from September 2017

The recently established Bio-Nano-Physics group at the Universität Innsbruck, Austria investigates complex transport phenomena in the domain of biological physics, soft condensed matter, and nano-physics. Our research activities encompass the localization transition in densely packed or crowded systems, the structural relaxation in glasses, as well as the reptation dynamics of needles, and the interplay of hydrodynamic back-flow on Brownian motion. The institute of theoretical physics located at the Technik Campus Innsbruck offers a stimulating research environment with scientific career opportunities. We invite talented and highly motivated candidates committed to basic science in an interdisciplinary research field to submit applications for a Phd position.

The duration is 4 years for a PhD student.

The requirement for the position is a master’s degree in theoretical physics or a related field with a strong background in statistical physics. The task necessitates to actively contributing to a joint research effort by communicating openly with the members of the team. Professional fluency in the English language including drafting skills is a mandatory requirement.

The position is either 75% part time (PhD student). The salary will match the Austrian FWF pay scale. The University of Innsbruck is an equal opportunity employer and particularly encourages applications from qualified women.
