in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Tübingen. We offer a stimulating environment to pursue research projects focused on the
development, implementation and application of a novel many-­‐body method at the interface of electronic structure theory and the quantum many-­body physics of effective low-energy models. In particular, the proposed project involves functional renormalization-­group based approaches developed within our group and the SFB-­ViCoM, where the expertise of the participating researchers ranges from ab initio methods to many-­body approaches.
Prospective candidates should hold a master degree in physics and have a strong interest in theoretical condensed matter physics and computational modeling. A background in advanced quantum many-­body methods is desirable but not compulsory. We offer a 3-­year doctoral research positions (75% TV-­L E13), starting immediately.

Applications including a CV, a documentation of academic record and a brief description of the Master thesis project should be sent to Prof. Sabine Andergassen (sabine.andergassen@uni-­tuebingen.de). Candidates should also arrange for two letters of recommendation.
