The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Heidelberg University invites applications for a
Tenure-track Professorship (W1) in Experimental Physics
Candidates are expected to develop a strong research program regarding the realization of synthetic quantum systems. Platforms could be based upon, but are not restricted to, ultracold quantum gases, circuit QED, photonic or optomechanical quantum systems. The position is integral part of the recently established Excellence Cluster “STRUCTURES" and will be located at the Physikalisches Institut. The Excellence Cluster offers a stimulating academic environment embracing physics, mathematics and computer science. The position offers cooperation opportunities with complementary experimental and theoretical activities within the Department of Physics and Astronomy, in particular in the fields of ultracold quantum gases and neuromorphic computing. The broader scientific environment includes the Heidelberg Center for Quantum Dynamics (CQD), the Center for Advanced Materials (CAM), and the Max-Planck-Institute for Nuclear Physics (MPI-K).
The duties at the Department include teaching of experimental physics in its full breadth at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The group will participate in the graduate education programs within the Heidelberg Graduate School for Physics (HGSFP) and the International Max-Planck Research School for Quantum Dynamics (IMPRS-QD).
In accordance with Section 51 Landeshochschulgesetz Baden-Württemberg (the Baden- Württemberg State Higher Education Act), this appointment requires a completed university degree, an excellent doctorate, and pedagogical aptitude which has generally been proven through teaching experience. The professorship is a qualification position and we are thus searching for a young personality with appropriate research experience.
The tenure track professorship (salary grade W1) will initially be limited to six years and, following a positive tenure evaluation, will be converted to a permanent W3 professorship.
Further information on the tenure track program (e.g. the evaluation statute) is available at the website of the human resources division (http://www.uni-heidelberg.de/tenuretrack).
The university aims to increase the number of women in areas in which they have been underrepresented until now. Qualified female academics are especially invited to apply. Preference will be given to disabled applicants who are otherwise equally qualified for the position.
Applications along with the usual accompanying documents (research statement, curriculum vitae detailing the scientific career, full publication list and a list of previous lecture courses and talks) should be submitted electronically (as a single pdf) by 20.07.2019 to Prof. Hans-Christian Schultz-Coulon, Dean, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Heidelberg University, Im Neuenheimer Feld 226, 69120 Heidelberg, Germany, E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
