Ph.D. Position


Applications are invited for


a Ph.D. Student Position


in an independent research group at the 3. Institute of Physics at the University of Stuttgart. The group's research activities encompass single-molecule studies of membrane proteins by means of advanced optical fluorescence microscopy and the non-invasive optical diagnostics of living cells and tissue by coherent Raman scattering (CRS) microspectroscopy.

The suitable candidate should have a Diploma or an equivalent degree in Physics, Biophysics or Physical Chemistry with a solid knowledge in one of the following fields: single-molecule Biophysics, ultrafast laser spectroscopy, nonlinear optics, or experimental quantum optics. A vital interest in interdisciplinary research with groups working in the Life Sciences is an asset.

The payment for a duration of 36 months will be according to a German civil service position of E13/2. The University of Stuttgart seeks to increase the number of female scientists and encourages them to apply. Handicapped persons with comparable qualifications receive preferential status. Submit your application together with a detailed curriculum vitae and the names, addresses and telephone numbers of two references. Applications should be sent to: Dr. Andreas Volkmer, 3. Institute of Physics, University of Stuttgart, Pfaffenwaldring 57, 70550 Stuttgart, Germany.
