FACULTY POSITION IN EXPERIMENTAL PHYSICS
The Department of Quantum Nanoscience (QN) at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) invites candidates for a tenure track assistant professor position to complement, extend and strengthen the department’s competence in the experimental fields of quantum matter, quantum transduction and quantum sensing.
Quantum physics has been blooming in recent years as a hotbed of scientific and technological innovation with a broad research landscape explored by a worldwide community. Our department’s research programme focuses on new strategies 1) to design, build and characterize quantum materials, 2) to convert quantum information between different systems by means of transduction, and 3) to develop quantum sensors endowed with the ultimate sensitivity of quantum probes. From these research areas, the fundamental building blocks of future quantum technologies will emerge. We aspire to play a central role in the ongoing endeavor to unlock the tremendous potential for innovation that lies in the quantum world.
We are looking for a promising scientist with recognized expertise in any of these areas from fundamental and/or technological perspectives. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research focuses in the study of novel paradigms in quantum matter, such as topology, symmetry and coherence, as well as of high-responsiveness quantum sensors and transducers. We seek candidates whose research profile expands our research directions while also synergizing with research groups in the department.
Candidates should have a successful scientific track record and be able to formulate an independent research program addressing current scientific and technological challenges. The candidate is expected to participate in the teaching of courses offered by the Applied Physics faculty both at the undergraduate and at the graduate level.
Consideration of applications for a tenured associate or full professor level position may be given to qualified individuals.
Applicants should have the following qualifications:
PhD degree and expertise in a field relevant for the position
Ability to lead projects, as well as supervise, train, and support junior researchers.
Ability to define and pursue an own research direction, evidenced by the track record and recommendations.
Ability to design and deliver clear and engaging education.
Ability to collaborate in research, educational and administrative projects
Competitive start-up package to enable a quick start of the research program
Collaborative atmosphere in our department with broad expertise range
Independence and support for own research line
Well-equipped lab with professional lab technicians
Professional and personal development programs.
