The Faculty of Physics at TU Dortmund University is seeking to fill the position of an
Assistant Professor (W1) with W3 “Tenure-Track” in “Medical Physics with a focus on Computational Physics”
commencing as soon as possible.
The Faculty of Physics offers its own bachelor’s program in Medical Physics and a master’s program in joint cooperation with Ruhr University Bochum.
The appointee should support and strengthen the Medical Physics program through complementary function, for example, theoretical research on radiation therapy. Through excellent scientific achievements, the sought-after candidate is internationally established and possesses the potential to develop an independent research profile at the highest international level.
The appointee is expected to contribute to research projects of the Physics Department and develop collaborative relationships with external institutions, e.g. The West German Proton Therapy Centre Essen, as well as to apply for third-party funding. Experience therein is desirable.
An adequate contribution to the general teaching duties of the Faculty of Physics is expected.
The successful candidate should possess social and leadership skills and be willing to be involved in academic self-governance.
The recruitment requirements are based on § 36 and § 37 HG NRW (law governing universities in NRW). The appointment is initially for three years as a temporary civil servant. In the course of the third year, this status will be reviewed and may be extended for a further three years depending on performance. At the end of this six-year assistant professorship, the “Tenure-Track” will lead to continued employment as a tenured W3 university professor, provided that the necessary aptitude, competence and academic performance have been demonstrated and that the legal requirements pertaining to § 38 HG NRW are met.
TU Dortmund University strives to increase the number of women in academic research and therefore encourages women to apply.

With 6,200 employees in research, teaching and administration and its unique profile, TU
Dortmund University shapes prospects for the future. The interaction between
engineering and natural science as well as social and cultural studies drives both
technological innovations and progress in knowledge and methodology. It is not only the
roughly 34,600 students who benefit from this.
The Facul...ty of Physics concentrates on the physics of condensed matter (solid state
physics, physics of soft matter, quantum science) and elementary particle physics and
has been developing a third focus in medical physics. The Faculty’s research is
embedded in a highly international network and successful in the acquisition of thirdparty
fundings. Its study courses in physics and medical physics are in far above average
