PhD position in 2D Electron Phonon Correlation Spectroscopy on Organic Conductor Materials

Job Code:

Job Offer from September 25, 2020

The EPC group (the lab of Heejae Kim) in the Department of Molecular Spectroscopy at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research is looking for a PhD candidate in the SFB/Transregional Collaborative Research Center program. The project is aimed at revealing mode-specific electron phonon coupling in charge transfer salts around Mott critical endpoint, using the newly developed 2D Electron Phonon Correlation Spectroscopy. The research group focuses on ultrafast electronic and structural properties of solid-state materials. During the project, the student will gain significant knowledge in cutting edge nonlinear spectroscopy and condensed matter physics.

Candidates with a BSc and MSc in Physics or equivalent are encouraged to apply. Below are the requirements for the position:

1. Courses or practical knowledge in solid-state physics and condensed matter physics

2. Courses or practical knowledge in optics, spectroscopy, and quantum mechanics

3. Strong knowledge of programming in Labview and Matlab

The applicants are requested to submit the documents including a motivation letter (1 page), C.V. (including a list of up to 3 potential references) and transcript (grade report) of your BSc and MSc degree via e-mail to Dr. Heejae Kim (

Review of the applications will begin on 30th November, 2020, and will continue until the position is filled.
