If applying, please indicate the project (in total 17 projects) to which your application relates. Applications to more than one project are possible (up to three), and a prioritization (rank 1, 2, etc.) for the project request must be indicated in the application documents.

Please send your application with the reference number: II-160-24 and the required documents by email (in a single PDF file, max 5 MB) to:



Successful applicants will have a graduate degree in physics or related areas such as a doctorate (certificate of PhD Diploma, or equivalent is required at the starting date) and previous experience in the listed areas of work. Strong interest in innovative approaches and research questions in quantum photonics, quantum technology and nanotechnology; special scientific, technological or academic achievements evidenced by publications, or experience in the laboratory or experience in teaching, communication and teamwork skills, ability to communicate as well as to work in a team; experience in interdisciplinary cooperation in research projects and in project management is desired. For all positions, very good English language skills are required, and/or the willingness to learn the missing language skills. Please see further desired qualifications listed below each project.

Required Documents:

CV (accoring to our template) with publication list, conference papers, and awards; a letter of motivation; the bachelor’s degree certificate and transcript of records, the Master’s certificate and a transcript of records, PhD certificate if available, a letter of recommendation (not from one of the PIs mentioned in the project descriptions, directly to the administration: berlinquantum@physik.tu-berlin.de ); a maximum of two names (and email addresses) of people who can be contacted directly by the BQ administration for another letter of recommendation; the doctoral thesis (as a link or pdf).
