The profile line LIGHT is searching for a Junior Research Group Leader (f/m/d) in the Field of Theory of Optical Quantum Information.

Building on the longstanding history of photonics research and teaching at Friedrich Schiller University Jena, the aim of the University's profile line LIGHT is to foster photonic quantum technologies, which are considered to have a particularly disruptive potential for science, business and society.

The laudable work of Zeiss, Abbe and Schott is globally recognised as a prime example of innovative symbiotic collaboration, consisting of excellent basic and applied research as well as successful,  internationally oriented entrepreneurship.

Under this umbrella, the aim of the profile line is to foster the scientific strength of the Optics and Photonics sector and to integrate research on Innovative Materials and Technologies and Energy Research as further research topics. Within the scope of this scientific background, creating sustainable interdisciplinary links with the fields of biology and medicine have been encouraging fruitful cooperations within the University motto Light - Life - Liberty.

Optics and Photonics

Optics and Photonics research at the University concentrates on three research fields: ultra optics (nanooptics, laser physics, photonic materials and optical systems), strong field physics (high-intensity lasers, laser physics and X-ray optics) and  biophotonics (spectral-optical analytics, biomedical imaging, chip-based analytics and diagnostics).

Innovative Materials and Energy Storage

The field of Innovative Materials and Energy Storage focuses on areas such as synthetic macro-molecules, polysaccharides, nano-structured sensors and nano-materials as well as the production of synthetic "minimal cells" or aspects of modern methods and processes in glass and polymer chemistry.


The coordination team of the LIHGT profile line serves as the reporting and strategic body. Chairmen of the coordination team is  Prof. Dr. Lothar Wondraczek (Otto Schott Institute of Material Research) and deputy is Prof. Dr. Ulf Peschel (Institute of Condensed Matter Theory and Optics).
