We are an experimental research group studying quantum gases in optical lattices. Our goal is to get a better understanding of strongly correlated systems through single-particle resolved manipulation and detection of ultracold atoms.

Our group is part of the Quantum Many Body Systems division at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching, Germany.

Philipp Preiss also co-leads the BMBF-funded project FermiQP.

Open positions

We are currently hiring at the Masters, PhD and postdoc level.

If you are interested in pursuing cutting-edge research in the field of ultracold atoms, please contact us to discuss suitable opportunities.
