Job Openings

Postdoctoral and Ph.D. positions are often available in our group.
Prospective candidates should simply contact Prof. Dr. Schollwöck or Prof. Dr. Pollet or directly send applications.

Master-/ Diplomatheses

We offer topics for master or diploma thesis in the following main areas of research:

a) Development of density matrix renormlization group codes or related
methods based on tensor-newtwork algorithms

b) Nonequilibrium physcs of interacting fermions, spin or bosons, in particular,
in the context of ultracold atomic gases

c) Quantum magnetism, including frustrated magnets, spin and heat transport, and time-resolved probes

d) Transport properties of nanostructures such as quantum dots, single-molecule conductors, etc.

Our main tool is the DMRG method (for an introduction, see Prof. Schollwöck's reviews: Ann. Phys. (NY) 326, 96 (2011)  and Rev. Mod. Phys. 77, 259 (2005)), yet we also use other numerical methods such as Monte Carlo simulations or exact diagonalization.

For further information, please contact Prof. Dr. U. Schollwöck (  (for a-d) or Dr. F. Heidrich-Meisner ( (for b-d).
