We are seeking an internationally distinguished scientist who can represent the field of experimental physics in teaching as well as in research.
Research of the successful candidate should focus on innovations in the field of quantum or sensor technologies, e. g. the fabrication and characterization of quantum materials and/or their application in sensor technology, metrology or in quantum computers. The research focus can also be in the field of physics of green technology, if it fits in with ongoing research at the department, e.g. in hybrid solids or in biological systems. Systems studied or methods applied should complement existing research at the department and facilitate collaborations within the department, the university and the Forschungscampus Mittelhessen. Participation in the existing coordinated research programs as well as the active contribution to the establishment of new coordinated research programs is expected. Experience in the successful acquisition of third-party funds is required.
In the area of teaching, the position requires significant participation in courses in the bachelor and in the master programs of the department. Teaching is expected to be conducted in German as well as in English. 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.
The requirements of §§ 61 and 62 of the HHG (Hessisches Hochschulgesetz) apply. Qualifications for an application are a habilitation or equivalent proof of qualification in the field of physics, and in-depth experience in teaching.
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 (Sozialgesetzbuch) IX (§ 2 Abs. 2, 3) will be given preference in the case of equal qualification.
As the documents cannot be returned after the selection procedure has been completed, please only submit copies of your application documents.
Please send your full application documents (copies) also using the short application form available at (http://uni-marburg.de/aaa3x) to the President of the Philipps-Universität Marburg, as a single PDF file to email@example.com by 13.03.2020 at the latest.
About Philipps-Universität Marburg, Department of Physics
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 city center.
Almost all scientific disciplines, with the exception of the engineering
sciences, are represented at Philipps-Universität Marburg. 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 or taught in
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 chaoti...c systems.
Currently there are around 14 professors and around 600 students.
