| 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 Experimental Atomic Physics (salary class W 2; LBesG) starting from winter semester 2014/15 and limited to six years. Following the temporary employment, a permanent faculty appointment is possible. |
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 outstanding researcher in the field of experimental quantum physics with ions and/or atoms. Participation in the scientific activities of the QUANTUM group and the Cluster of Excellence PRISMA is expected. Possible research topics include the simulation of quantum systems, precision measurements of and with quantum systems for fundamental physics and quantum sensors, as well as quantum metrology. An active role in the conception of externally funded and/or collaborative projects is expected. The appointment requires participation in teaching activities at the Institute of Physics. 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 Education 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 employment 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 30 April 2014. The application should be addressed to
