The Freiburg Materials Research Center (FMF) is offering a position for a scientist to do a PhD work in theoretical materials research | term for filing application: 14.08.2020
Consider making the switch to the University of Freiburg: It is one of the most renowned and strongest research universities in Germany, with a history spanning more than 500 years. You'll engage in top-notch research and teaching with a unique spectrum of disciplines, perspectives, and people - right in the heart of one of Germany's most beautiful cities.
The University of Freiburg's human resources policy is oriented toward the principles of equal opportunity and diversity. The university is committed to the goal of creating a family-friendly university.

The Freiburg Materials Research Center (FMF) is offering a position for a

scientist to do a PhD work in theoretical materials research
Part-time position (80 %), Start-date: At the earliest possible date.

Within the Priority Programme 1959 "Manipulation of matter controlled by electric and magnetic fields" funded by the DFG ( the FMF and project partners are conducting both experimental and theoretical research on the topic

„Processing of magnetic materials enhanced by magnetic or electric fields or currents“.

The objective of this project is to investigate how crystalline structures and chemical orders of ferromagnetic intermetallic compounds can be manipulated by high electromagnetic fields and currents such that uniaxial anisotropic, hard-magnetic crystal phases can be generated in the metallurgical processing. The project partners of the FMF are the “Functional Materials” group at the Technical University of Darmstadt and the “Materials Modeling” group at the Fraunhofer IWM in Freiburg.

The theoretical part of the project at the FMF and the IWM combines atomistic and phenomenological computer simulation methods to investigate atomic diffusion and ordering processes in ferromagnetic intermetallic phases.

For this theoretical task as a PhD work we are looking for a

Theoretical Physicist.  

As applicant, you have got an academic degree in Physics (Master, Diplom), which entitles you for PhD admission at the University of Freiburg. You are well trained and skilled in scientific research, highly interested in materials and their properties, preferably already experienced in theoretical solid-state physics and/or computational material simulations, and motivated to collaborate in an interdisciplinary team.

The contract duration for this position is initially limited to 2 years, with the possibility of an extension. The salary will be determined in accordance with TV-L E13.
We are particularly pleased to receive applications from women for the position advertised here.

Please send your application in English including supporting documents citing the reference number 00001133, by 14.08.2020 at the latest. Please send your application to the following address in written or electronic form:
