Open positions and thesis projects

We are continuously looking for talented and self-motivated students who are excited to work on optically active nanosystems and the control of these structures at radio frequencies for advanced applications in future quantum information technology.

We are offering Bachelor thesis projects and Master projects starting at the practical laboratory class level for students in the Physics and Material Science Programs at Universität Augsburg.

Kontrolle einzelner Quantenemitter mit Nanoschallwellen / Control of single quantum light emitters using nano-soundwaves (Bachelor or Master) [Ausschreibung/Opening]

Akusto-optische Spektroskopie an 2D materialien oder Nanodrähten / Acousto-optoelectric Spectroscopy of two-dimensional materials or nanowires (Bachelor or Master)

Prospective students should bring strong enthusiasm in fundamental science and physics. Starting from undergraduate Bachelor and Master students, all students contribute actively to ongoing cutting-edge research activities which we pursue with national and international collaborators. We expect a strong interest and fundamental knowledge in solid-state physics, quantum mechanics and optics. Candidates for PhD and Postdoc project with different background may also be considered.

PhD projects

Highly motivated and talented candidates may send an unsolicited inquiry by e-mail to Hubert Krenner.

With your inquiry please send a complete resume including certificates of your Master degree, a one-page statement of motivation and names of three references. Please emphasize in your motivation letter (i) which research area you are most interested in, (ii) how you think you could contribute to its success and (iii) where you see yourself after your graduation.

Mass e-mailed applications will not be considered.


We are happy to support suitable candidates who are interested in joining us under a fellowship program including


Exceptionally (self-)motivated and talented candidates may send an unsolicited inquiry by e-mail to Hubert Krenner including a ~one page statement of motivation.

Please include a  short outline for a two-year research project which you would like to conduct. For our recent and planned future activites please refer to the research page and current undergraduate thesis openings listed on this page. Your project sketch should combine your expertise with the research performed in our group and may be the basis for a fellowship application.
