Quantum Communications (QC) are revolutionising the way we transmit information and connect remote parties. Leveraging on the quantum properties of photons and on the tools developed for optical communications, it is now possible to create quantum networks that distribute confidential information to distant users with the highest level of security and create quantum correlations - or entanglement - at its nodes, thus shaping the future quantum internet.

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is the national aeronautics and space research centre and the space agency of the Federal Republic of Germany. Here, 10,000 employees work together on a unique variety of topics in the fields of aeronautics, space, energy, transport, security and digitalisation. Their missions range from basic research to the development of innovative applications and products for tomorrow. Cutting-edge research requires excellent minds – particularly more females – at all levels, who fully achieve their potential in an inspiring environment. Launch your mission with us.


Institution: Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Natural Sciences, Department of Physics, Institute for Quantum Physics

Salary level: EGR. 13 TV-L

In the department of Theoretical Quantum Physics, we are looking for a research associate in the group "Quantum Simulations and Applications" to explore the potential of quantum computers for highly relevant and critical application problems in mobility. In the QCMobility project, you will investigate quantum computing applications for the domains of air transport, road transport, rail transport, maritime transport and intermodal transport in an interdisciplinary cooperation between industrial partners and DLR institutes. You will develop customised quantum algorithms and demonstration problems and implement them on the quantum computing hardware at the DLR Innovation Centres in Ulm and Hamburg. Take on a central role in this highly relevant project in cooperation with the project partners involved. Pave the way for new applications in the field of quantum computing and be part of the DLR Quantum Computing Initiative.

The aim of the DLR Institute of Quantum Technologies in Ulm is to develop precision instruments for space applications based on quantum technologies and, in close cooperation with industry, mature them into prototypes. It thus provides a bridge between fundamental research and industry. Together with the DLR-Institute for Satellite Geodesy and Inertial Sensing in Hanover and the Galileo Competence Center in Oberpfaffenhofen, the institute in Ulm plays a pioneering role in these fields of research and application. The research of the four core departments Quantum Metrology, Quantum Information and Communication, Quantum Nanophysics, and Quantum Control of Charged Matter Waves is complemented by support from three cross-sectional departments of Quantum Engineering, Integration of Micro- and Nanosystems, and Theoretical Quantum Physics. The institute works in an interdisciplinary way, where fundamental theoretical research and experimental tests meets engineering.
