Tenure Track Professorship for Semiconductor Spectroscopy
(W1 Tenure Track to W2)
to be filled in the winter term 2020/21. This professorship is funded by the Tenure Track Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States and is initially limited to six years.
The successful applicant (m/f/d) is expected to strengthen the research priorities of the Faculty of Physics by establishing an independent research group in the field of experimental physics and to actively participate in research alliances and initiatives of the Faculty of Physics and the University of Marburg.
Research of the successful applicant should focus on semiconductor spectroscopy, in particular on spectroscopy of innovative semiconductor materials like perovskites or two-dimensional layers of transition metal dichalcogenides. Expertise in the field of III-V-semiconductors and/or in the field of organic semiconductors is desirable. Experience in working with interfaces, hybrid systems or materials for energy generation and storage is regarded as an asset. In the field of spectroscopy, experience in time-resolved luminescence and in microscopical techniques is desirable. The systems studied or the methods applied should complement existing research at the department.
This call is explicitly aimed at researchers in the early stages of their scientific careers. The duration of the employment in research and science after obtaining the doctoral degree should not exceed four years. Furthermore, applicants should not have received their doctorate at the University of Marburg. In case the doctoral degree was obtained at the University of Marburg, the applicant should have worked in research and science outside of the University of Marburg for at least two years thereafter (in accordance with § 64 Abs. 3 Hessisches Hochschulgesetz HHG, the State of Hessen Higher Education Act).
We are looking for a personality with initial outstanding scientific achievements and an innovative scientific profile that demonstrates the potential for a further successful career in science at the highest international level. Prerequisites are a university degree in physics, an excellent doctorate and a particular pedagogical aptitude. The applicant is expected to show exceptional initiative in the independent acquisition of external research funding.
The employment requirements of §§ 61, 62 and especially 64 HHG apply. The Tenure Track professorship is initially a grade W1 fixed term (6 years) position. If the requirements under general German civil service law are met, the applicant shall be granted a temporary civil service status for a period of six years. In the event of a positive evaluation of professional, pedagogical and personal aptitude, the applicant will be granted a civil service status for life, combined with the assignment of a W2/W3 permanent professorship.

The University of Marburg attaches great importance to the intensive supervision of students and doctoral candidates and expects that its faculty members maintain a pronounced presence at the University and are strongly committed to teaching.
We support women and therefore explicitly encourage them to apply. We welcome individuals with children – the University of Marburg is committed to the goal of a family-friendly university. People with disabilities in the terms of the SGB IX (§ 2 Abs. 2, 3 SGB IX) are preferred if they are equally qualified for the position.
Application and interview costs will not be reimbursed.
Please send your application documents (copies) including a research and a teaching concept using the application form provided on the Internet (https://uni-marburg.de/KW2EY) to the President of the Philipps University Marburg, firstname.lastname@example.org in a single PDF file by 30.04.2020 at the latest.
