The Institute of Experimental Physics at the Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics at the University of Innsbruck seeks to fill a position of a full-time (40 hours per week) assistant professor (Chiffre MIP-10722) as of March 01, 2020. The position is limited to 6 years. However, a tenure-track agreement can be offered within the first year of employment, leading to a tenured associate professorship upon positive evaluation.
The position holder is expected to carry out independent research in the field of theory of atomic quantum gases, particularly with regard to quantum many-body physics and to real experiments on ultracold atomic ensembles, and to acquire external funding for this research. Original research publications in leading international journals are expected. The position holder is required to teach at university level within all study programs in physics (also in German within two years from start of the appointment), as well as for other departments, including supervision of students at all levels. Furthermore, the holder of the position is expected to take part in academic administration and service.
Doctoral degree in experimental physics or a related field
Postdoctoral or corresponding professional experience
Teaching experience at university level desired
Relevant scientific achievement beyond dissertation/PhD level, including independent publications – please list your ResearcherID and/or ORCID iD
Research experience in the field of theory of atomic quantum gases, particularly with regard to quantummany-body physics and to real experiments on ultracold atomic ensembles
Relevant publications in leading international refereed journals and presentations at international conferences/workshops
Existing collaborations with internationally leading groups
Experience in acquisition of third-party funding or scientific project management desirable
International mobility and visibility
