Undergraduate projects, master theses, PhD and postdoc positions

We are always looking for new members to join our group. If you are interested in an undergraduate project (Wahlpraktikum) or master thesis in our group, or would like to join as a Ph.D. student or postdoc, please contact Stefan Willitsch. We offer a vibrant and friendly research atmosphere in an exciting, highly interdisciplinary scientific field at the interface between chemistry and physics, the possibility to participate in international research collaborations, state-of-the-art laboratories and an excellent infrastructure.
Candidates should have degrees in chemistry or physics. Applications for PhD and postdoc positions should include a curriculum vitae, a letter of motivation, the contact details of at least two referees and a list of publications. PhD applicants should also include transcripts of their academic records.

Open postdoc position: cold ion-neutral collisions and chemistry using hybrid trapping techniques

A postdoc position is available in the group of Prof. Stefan Willitsch, University of Basel, Switzerland. The successful candidate will participate in ongoing experiments and new developments to study interactions, collisions and chemical reactions between molecular ions and neutral species in the millikelvin temperature regime using “hybrid” trapping techniques. For further information, please refer to the website of the research group at www.coldions.chemie.unibas.ch or contact stefan.willitsch@unibas.ch.

The position is available for an initial term of one year with a possibility for extension. Candidates should have a PhD degree in atomic, molecular or chemical physics, preferably with a background in cold-molecules and/or cold-ions techniques. Inquiries and applications should be sent to stefan.willitsch@unibas.ch and include a curriculum vitae, a letter of motivation, a list of publications and the contact details of at least two referees.
