PhD and postdocs
Want to join us, or know someone who might?
We currently have open PhD positions as well as a possible postdoc position. To apply email Anton Akhmerov and Michael Wimmer your CV together with a brief description of your research interests and arrange for the recommendation letters to be emailed to us. In the application explain why you are interested in doing research in our group.
If you want to learn informally about the way the group works, feel free to contact any group members directly. Also don't hesitate to email us if you have additional questions.
The salaries are somewhat hard to estimate because they grow by around 100€ per year, and are also larger for employees from abroad due to the the tax reduction known as the 30% ruling. A rough estimate of the starting salary is around 1800€/month after tax for Dutch PhDs, 2000€/month for PhDs coming from abroad, and 2700€/month for postdocs.
The PhD contract is 4 years, and you'll need to spend around 10% of the time teaching. The postdoc contract duration is usually 3 years, and there are no teaching obligations. PhD students and postdocs regularly go to conferences and summer schools. The participation in those as well as computing needs are fully covered by us.
