is a newly established Cluster of Excellence and part of Germany’s Excellence Strategy for research. It brings together leading scientists from mathematics, particle physics, astrophysics, and cosmology at Universität Hamburg and DESY. Its mission is to understand mass and gravity at the interface between quantum physics and cosmology.
We invite applications for
more than 30 PhD and Postdoc positions
on research topics of the Cluster of Excellence linked to:
- Higgs Physics
- Dark Matter
- Gravitational Waves
- Quantum Theories and Mathematical Physics
Quantum Universe is looking for outstanding doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers with excellent degrees and scientific track records. Successful candidates will join an inspiring world-class environment for research and education and will be promoted through the Quantum Universe Research School.
The term of PhD and postdoc contracts is typically limited to three years. The salaries are internationally competitive and are typically 67% E13 for PhD positions and 100% E13 for postdoc positions, where E13 is the German public service salary scale.
