PhD Thesis Student (f/m) on the beamline ID27 in the Matter at Extremes group

Context & Job description

You will join a collaboration between the ESRF and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology to study Quantum Materials at low temperatures and high pressures. 

You will conduct cutting-edge X-ray scattering experiments on low dimensional quantum materials at extreme conditions and compare the experimental results to recent advances in quantum many body theories. The project will represent a significant step towards designing materials with desired magnetic and elastic properties on a quantum level that are tailored for applications in quantum technology.

Further information can be obtained from Björn WEHINGER (tel.: +33 (0)4 76 88 45 09, email: bjorn.wehinger@esrf.fr).

Expected profile

  • Degree allowing enrollment for a PhD (such as MSc, Master 2 de Recherche, Laurea or equivalent) in physics, chemistry, materials science or closely related science
  • A background in Quantum Materials and programming is desirable
  • Mobility between Grenoble and Karlsruhe expected
  • Proficiency in English (working language at the ESRF)

Working conditions

You shall be enrolled in Karlsruhe Institute of Technology as a condition of your recruitment.

Contract of two years, renewable for one year.
