Join us!

We are always looking for talented new postdocs, PhD students, and master students who are interested in joining our growing interdisciplinary research team, either as a member of the Faculty of Physics or the Faculty of Mathematics.

Topics of interest cover the whole range from quantum information and computation to quantum many-body physics, with a focus on tensor networks and related methods. More information on the topics covered can be found on our research pages.

If you are interested in working with us, please send an email to schuch-office.quantum@univie.ac.at with the following documents:

For postdoc applicants:

  • a CV (including a list of publications & talks),
  • relevant certificates and grades,
  • a description of future research plans (about 2-3 pages),
  • and the contact data of at least two referees who can provide a letter of recommendation upon request.


For PhD applicants:

  • a CV
  • certificates and grades from bachelor and master studies,
  • a brief cover letter (max. 1 page), explaining the motivation for joining the group,
  • and the contact data of at least one referee who can provide a letter of recommendation upon request.


Master students should directly inquire with Prof. Schuch about the possibility of doing a master's thesis. Note that we generally cannot support outside students who want to come to Vienna for doing their master's thesis.
