Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dres­den-Ros­sen­dorf e.V.

As a mem­ber of the Helm­holtz Asso­ci­ation of Ger­man Research Cen­ters, the HZDR employs about 1,400 people. The Cen­ter's focus is on inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research in the areas energy, health, and mat­ter.

The Dresden High Mag­netic Field Labor­at­ory (HLD) focuses on mod­ern mater­i­als research in high mag­netic fields. As part of the Insti­tute, the Depart­ment of Strongly Cor­rel­ated Elec­tron Sys­tems invites applic­a­tions as PostDoc / Sci­ent­ist (f/m/d) Research in Quantum Mater­i­als.

The pos­i­tion will be avail­able from 1 Janu­ary 2023. The ini­tial employ­ment con­tract is lim­ited to two years, with pos­sib­il­ity of exten­sion.

PostDoc / Sci­ent­ist (f/m/d) Research in Quantum Mater­i­als

Working field:

  • Pur­sue vig­or­ous research in an inter­na­tion­ally lead­ing user facil­ity
  • Par­ti­cip­ate in the in-house research pro­gram at the HLD, focus­ing on high-field elec­tron spin res­on­ance spec­tro­scopy of low-dimen­sional and frus­trated quantum spin sys­tems
  • Par­ti­cip­ate in the Cluster of Excel­lence Com­plex­ity and Topo­logy in Quantum Mater­i­als
  • Sup­port the user pro­gram of the HLD that provides access to pulsed mag­netic fields bey­ond 90 T as well as to a large vari­ety of exper­i­mental tech­niques, includ­ing high-field elec­tron spin res­on­ance spec­tro­scopy


  • PhD degree in Phys­ics
  • Exper­i­ence in high mag­netic field and/or low-tem­per­at­ure meas­ure­ments as well as in strongly cor­rel­ated elec­tron phys­ics such as quantum mag­net­ism – the focus of the HLD in-house research pro­gram - is desired
  • Inde­pend­ent work­ing style, demand­ing high qual­ity of your own research
  • Well-developed social and com­mu­nic­at­ive skills
  • Very good Eng­lish lan­guage skills

What we offer:

  • A vibrant research com­munity in an open, diverse, and inter­na­tional work envir­on­ment
  • Sci­entific excel­lence and extens­ive pro­fes­sional net­work­ing oppor­tun­it­ies
  • The employ­ment con­tract is lim­ited to two years with the pos­sib­il­ity of exten­sion
  • Salary and social bene­fits in accord­ance with the col­lect­ive agree­ment for the pub­lic sec­tor (TVöD-Bund) includ­ing 30 days of paid hol­i­day leave, com­pany pen­sion scheme (VBL)
  • We sup­port a good work-life bal­ance and flex­ible work­ing hours
  • Numer­ous com­pany health man­age­ment offers
  • An employer sub­sidy for the VVO job ticket
