PhD student positions

PhD thesis within the SHIPTRAP experiment at GSI Darmstadt, Germany


The SHIPTRAP experiment is looking for a PhD student interested in working in the field of ion traps. The division is involved in this experiment and supervises PhD theses at SHIPTRAP.

The experimental program will include precision mass measurements of super-heavy ions with a Penning trap mass spectrometer using the time of flight (TOF) as well as the Fourier Transform - Ion Cyclotron Resonance (FT-ICR) detection methods.


  • stopping and storage of super-heavy ions
  • detection of single particles
  • ion-trap technology
  • low-temperature physics
  • rf- and microwave technology
  • superconducting magnets
  • labview programming
