Ruprecht Karls Universität Heidelberg

Open positions

In our group we have interns, bachelor and master students, as well as PhDs and Postdocs. All our projects are related to methods from theoretical physics being applied to soft matter and biological systems. Therefore a background in theoretical and computational physics as well as a basic understanding of biology is required. Depending on the specific project, experience with statistical mechanics, soft matter physics, stochastic and/or non-linear dynamics, reaction kinetics, molecular dynamics or systems control theory might be helpful. In any case, the prospective candidate should have a keen interest in interdisciplinary work and in interactions with experimentalists. Our group can offer very good working conditions, dedicated supervision and lots of opportunities to learn and communicate. Although vacancies are not that frequent, we are continuously searching for promising candidates on all levels.
