PhD Position in Molecular Spectroscopy, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Netherlands

Expires on: 04/30/2024


The Faculty of Science at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam invites applications for a PhD position in Molecular Spectroscopy. The project focuses on precision measurements of weakly-bound states of H2+ in the THz range to test QED predictions. 

The PhD project involves precision measurements of weakly-bound molecular states of H2+ using novel quantum technologies. Molecular ions are prepared, trapped, and cooled using advanced quantum techniques. The project aims to contribute to cutting-edge research in quantum metrology.


  • Bachelor/Master’s degree in physics or physical chemistry.
  •  Experience in atomic/molecular/optical physics and/or molecular spectroscopy.
  • Bright, enthusiastic, works well in a team, eager to learn.

Documents: Applicants must submit:

  • Completed application form.
  • Cover letter explaining interest in the project.
  • Up-to-date CV.
  • Two academic references.
  • Copies of qualification certificates and transcripts.
  • Copy of passport photo page.

How to Apply: Submit applications to the Doctoral College at using the subject line: Future Societies Research Studentships.
