Also in Corona times we are continuing our research, and our next project is near – border-crossing quantum communication. That’s state-of-the-art research using the most modern equipment available. And we need you!

We’re offering:

  • A pleasant and constructive working environment where asking questions isn’t only OK, but encouraged

  • A young team with year-long experience and publications in high-impact journals (sometimes findings from Master Theses get published already!)

  • State-of-the-art equipment and cooperations in the EU and around the globe

  • No occupational therapy, but meaningful participation in a large-scale experiment

  • Monthly financial support


We‘re expecting:

  • Curiosity and interest in Optics, Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Optics

  • Preparedness to work on a project for one year

  • That you have completed the major part of your master's curriculum

  • Fluent English due to our international team and the mostly anglophone specialist literature

If this has aroused your interest, please contact Sebastian Neumann, +43 699 11859961 or sebastian.neumann@univie.ac.at as of now. He will arrange an informal meeting – in a first step if necessary via video call, but a visit of the lab and a hands-on explanation of our work is also possible!
