Responsibilities and duties
The successful candidate will be responsible for independent work on research project A02 Gravity Sensing with VLBAI. In the scope of this work, a high-performance active six-degrees-of-freedom seismic isolation system (SAS) acquired in the context of the major research facility will be commissioned, characterized & tested, and finally implemented for use in a long-baseline atom interferometer.
To qualify for the position, applicants must hold a scientific university degree (Master, Diploma, or equivalent) in physics. We also encourage candidates from neighbouring disciplines, e.g., mechanical & electrical engineering, as well as mechatronics to apply. We expect interest and experience in analogue and digital control systems. Very good knowledge of quantum optics and atomic & molecular physics is beneficial. We require very good written and spoken English, organisational skills, own initiative, and the ability and willingness to familiarize oneself with new areas of work.
What we offer
The DFG Collaborative Research Centre CRC 1464 “TerraQ – relativistic and quantum-based geodesy” is characterised by its unique interdisciplinarity of quantum physics and geodesy. TerraQ aims to advance quantum-based measurement concepts for monitoring mass changes from space and on ground, combined with the corresponding data analysis and modelling, in order to provide sophisticated tools that significantly enhance our knowledge on the involved change processes in the system Earth.
We offer PhD students research challenges at the highest level, project responsibility and a top-class international network. With our integrated graduate school we offer a wide range of further education opportunities in our interdisciplinary research field and soft skills to prepare for a successful career.
Part-time employment is possible.
