Jobs & Internships

There are always opportunities to participate in our group's research.

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 plasmonicsnanoopticsultrafast spectroscopy, and modern material systems spectroscopy. Please contact Harald Giessen for details.
