Become part of the "Quantum Materials" group led by Silke Bühler-Paschen at TU Wien and contribute to the discovery of new phenomena of strongly correlated electron systems! Using a wide range of experimental techniques (from bulk and thin film synthesis to challenging measurements at ultra-low temperatures), we seek to push the frontiers of knowledge. We are running several large-scale projects, including the ERC Advanced Grant "Correlation-driven Metallic Topology" (CorMeTop) and the FWF Special Research Program "Correlated Quantum Materials & Solid State Quantum Systems" (Q-M&S). As a "University Assistant" you can contribute to all these directions and also bring in complementary expertise and new ideas. Apply and get to know us!
