The Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (MPI-PKS) seeks a
Distinguished PKS Postdoctoral Fellow
The successful candidate will complement research areas pursued at the institute and conduct independent studies e.g. in the following theoretical research fields: Ultracold gases and Rydberg physics, attosecond and ultrafast X-ray physics, quantum optics, condensed matter theory, molecular electronics, correlated electrons and magnetism, quantum information theory, statistical physics far from equilibrium, nonlinear dynamics, biological physics of cells and tissues, and quantitative biology. Novel directions with promising perspectives are also welcome.
The position can start by January 2020, or any later date that year.
Distinguished PKS postdoctoral fellows appear personally along with the departments and groups on the main research page of the institute. Further details of research opportunities can be found on our web-site: http://www.pks.mpg.de/research
The appointment is for two years, renewable for one more year.
To apply for the position, please fill the online application form http://www.pks.mpg.de/PKSFellow20 and upload your application package (cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications, statement of research interests and research proposal as well as the three most relevant publications) in one pdf file. Please also arrange for three letters of reference to be submitted via http://www.pks.mpg.de/~visitors/reference
Application deadline is November 6, 2019.
The Max-Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are under-represented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
About Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems
The Physics of Complex Systems, still a relatively young field, is developing rapidly and is constantly changing in the course of this development. This is due, firstly, to the variety of subjects ranging from new and unconventional questions in traditional areas such as solid state physics or molecular physics, all the way to physical problems in biological or man-made systems (e.g. financial markets). Secondly, researchers in this field of complex systems develop new methods at a high rate or transpose and adapt existing ones from other fields to initiate new lines of investigation.
The goal of the Institute is to contribute to the research in the field of complex systems in a globally visible way and to promote it as a subject. Furthermore, we have set ourselves the challenge of passing on the innovation generated in the field of complex systems as quickly and efficiently as possible to the young generation of scientists at universities. This requires a high degree of creativity, flexibility and communication with universities. For this reason, the organization of the Institute differs greatly from most Max Planck Institutes.
The concept rests on two pillars: in-house rese...arch and a program for visiting scientists. The latter not only covers individual scholarships for guest scientists at the institute, but also 20 international workshops and seminars per year.
