Open Positions

Open positions in the group »Polarized Target«


At the moment we offer several positions in the »Polarized Target Group« to work in various fields.

Diploma/Master theses


We offer diploma theses in the subjects:

  1. Design and setup of an apparatus for measuring the field homogenity of superconducting magnets
  2. Simulation of a superconducting magnet using the FEM-software package OPENFOAM
  3. Initiation and test of a refrigerator system for measuring the nuclear poarizability of different materials:
    • 3He-4He dilution refrigerator at temperatures of about 50 mK
    • 4He refrigerator at temperatures of about 1 K


PhD theses


The »Polarized Target Group« at the Physics Institute of the University of Bonn invites applications for two PhD positions. PhD projects can be agreed on any of the group’s research subjects, including:

  • Dilution refrigerator systems for operation of polarized solid targets in Frozen-Spin mode
  • Design, construction and test of high field homogeneity superconducting magnets
  • Study and test of new target materials suitable for operation in a high intensity beam
  • Microwave systems for dynamically polarizing targets
  • NMR systems to measure the target polarization

The applicants should have a master’s degree or diploma in physics. Experience in experimental research as well as in the group activities would be an asset, though not a requirement. Applicants should send a CV, publication list, description of research interests, and arrange for the submission of two letters of recommendation to

Dr. Hartmut Dutz

Applications by email are welcome.

Informal inquiries are welcome.

The positions are available immediately. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. PhD students are hired on a working contract and are paid according to the German Public Service standards, 1/2 BAT IIa for 3 years. Applications for the positions are open to students from all countries. Women and minorities are particularly encouraged to apply.
