The I. Physikalische Institut at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Cologne advertises a
Professorship in "Detector-Physics"
(W1/Tenure Track W2)
to be filled as soon as possbile.
This call is part of the Federal Tenure Track Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States. It addresses researchers at an early career stage.
The I. Physikalische Institut at the University of Cologne has a leading role in instrumentation development for astronomy in several important international observatory projects. This area of research will be further strengthened by a new professorship in detector physics.
We expect the successful candidate to perform fundamental research on quantum-limited detectors and quantum materials, as well as to contribute to the detector development for astronomical instrumentation in the area of radio-, submm-, and far-infrared astronomy. We also expect the successful candidate to engage in teaching in the general physics and the astro- physics curriculum, and the practical courses, as well as with specialized lectures and through collaboration within the Bonn-Cologne Graduate School for Physics and Astronomy.
Excellent, internationally visible scientific achievements and teaching experience are a prerequisite for a successful application. Experience in the acquisition and execution of third-party funded projects is desirable.
In the third year after entering into office, an interim evaluation is held. This serves as the basis for the decision as to whether an extension for a further three years will be granted to the candidate. At the latest, a final evaluation is held in the sixth year after entering into office. On this basis, a decision will be reached as to whether the candidate will be given tenure at W2 level. Both evaluations are carried out according to the Regulations for Quality Assurance in Tenure Track Procedures at the University of Cologne.
