Open Positions

There are always opportunities to participate in our group's research. Our institute is part of the Alexander von Humboldt network.

If you are a student and like to gain some experimental experience, please come and visit us – we have always some opportunities of lab projects and internships. If you are interested, please contact one of our group's members.

If you are looking for a Bachelor, Master, or PhD position, please have a look at the different hot research topics we are offering at the moment. In addition to these topics, we offer several cutting-edge projects in the fields of plasmonics, nanooptics, ultrafast spectroscopy, and modern material systems spectroscopy. Please contact Harald Giessen for details.
