    • optomechanics or laser physics
    • molecular beam physics, mass spectrometry, optical spectroscopy
    • physical chemistry
  • feel at ease in an interdisciplinary and international team 

you are invited to apply for a PhD position in our group.

Depending on the project, this position comes with a 3-year or 4-year contract, with a PhD salary and benefits in agreement with the Austrian collective bargaining agreement.
