Physics: Condensed Matter, Physics: Theoretical
We are seeking an internationally distinguished scientist who can represent the field of theoretical physics in teaching as well as in research. The successful candidate should have an excellent research record in the field of light-matter-interaction in solids. The new research group is intended to complement and strengthen the existing experimental groups of the department. Its research should focus on the characterization of dynamic processes in one or more of the following materials: semiconductors, interface-dominated materials, inorganic and/or organic hybrid materials. Close collaboration with the coordinated research programs SFB 1083 “Structure and Dynamics of internal Interfaces” and the GRK 1782 “Functionalization of Semiconductors” as well as with further existing and planned research activities of the department and with the “Forschungscampus Mittelhessen” is expected. In the area of teaching, the position requires significant participation in courses in the bachelor and in the master programs of the department as well as in the courses for future teachers. Teaching is expected to be conducted in German as well as in English.
The requirements of §§ 61 and 62 of the HHG apply. Qualifications for an application are: a degree in physics and a PhD/doctoral degree with emphasis on theoretical physics as well as a habilitation or equivalent proof of qualification in the field of theoretical physics, and in-depth experience in teaching. Experience in the successful acquisition of third-party funds is required.
Since the Philipps-Universität attributes great importance to intensive tutoring of students as well as to the supervision of doctoral students, it expects that its faculty members maintain a pronounced presence at the University.
We are committed to supporting equal opportunity for women and particularly encourage them to apply. Applicants with children are welcome; the Philipps-Universität is certified as a family-friendly university. Applicants with a disability as described in SGB IX (§ 2 Abs. 2, 3) will be given preference in the case of equal qualification.

Philipps-Universität is not only a German university steeped in tradition, it is also the oldest university in the world that was founded as a Protestant institution in 1527. It has been a place of research and teaching for nearly five centuries and unites groundbreaking research with exemplary support for young scholars and researchers, with an attractive academic offering in a charming setting with a medieval historical town center.
Almost all scientific disciplines, with the exception of the engineering sciences, are represented at Philipps-Universität. The different disciplines are assigned to 16 different departments.
Philipps-Universität has about 25,000 students and 4,600 employees.
The Department of Physics looks back on a history rich in tradition. Outstanding scientists such as Denis Papin, Michail Lomonossow, Karl Ferdinand Braun, Alfred Wegener, and Otto Hahn all studied and taught in Marburg.
The department’s working groups are involved in a wide range of national and international research networks and projects. Their research focuses on semiconductor physics, surface physics, and neurophysics, as well as on the physics of complex and chaotic systems.
