| The Faculty of Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz (JGU) and the PRISMA Cluster of Excellence invite applications for an appointment at the level of University Professor (m/f) for Mathematical Physics (salary class W 3; LBesG) starting from winter semester 2014/15. |
The Cluster of Excellence PRISMA (“Precision Physics, Fundamental Interactions and Structure of Matter”) is focussed on the key questions concerning the fundamental constituents of matter and their implications for the physics of the Universe. PRISMA is supported by several high-profile research groups in the areas of particle, astro-particle, hadron and atomic physics at the University of Mainz and the associated Helmholtz Institute Mainz (HIM)
We seek to appoint an internationally outstanding researcher in the field of mathematical physics, whose main focus is in the area of string theory or formal aspects of quantum field theories (for exam-ple, mathematical properties of scattering amplitudes, AdS/CFT correspondence or supersymmetric Yang–Mills theories). The successful candidate is expected to complement and extend the existing research topics in theoretical high-energy physics in Mainz and to collaborate with other theoretical groups within the Cluster of Excellence PRISMA. The appointment requires participation in teaching activities at the Institute of Physics. In particular, the entire field of theoretical physics should be covered. We expect that candidates have the necessary educational commitment. The state of Rhineland–Palatinate and the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz support a concept of intensive tutoring and expects a high rate of presence at the university.
Applicants must meet the general requirements according to public services law and the Higher Educa-tion Act of Rhineland-Palatinate. In addition to a PhD in physics a first rate research record must be proven.
The Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz is committed to increasing the proportion of women in the scientific field and therefore encourages women to apply.
Disabled persons with suitable qualifications will be considered preferentially.
Please send your written application, including all documents necessary to establish that the employ-ment requirements are met (CV, grades and certificates, statement of previous teaching activities and publication list) and up to three key publications, in electronic form only. Please upload a single PDF file at http://www.phmi.uni-mainz.de/stellen by 31 March 2014. The application should be addressed to
