Faculty of Physics, the
Institute of Solid-State and Materials Physics (IFM), for the
Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat invites applications for the
Chair (W3) of Nanoscale Quantum Materials
to be filled as of
April 1, 2024.
We are looking for a scientist able to comprehensively represent the field of “Experimental Condensed Matter Physics’’ in research and teaching. Your research should focus on the field of nanoscale quantum materials. The chair is embedded into the Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat, in which phenomena, materials, and applications of topological physics are studied. If you can actively contribute to strengthening this modern research area with a long-term perspective, e.g. via design, preparation, and investigation of quantum materials in form of thin films, hybrid or hetero-structures, lateral nanostructures, or 2D materials,you fulfil a centralcriterion for being appointed. In addition to active research within ct.qmat, your participation in other collaborative research activities is explicitly desired. There is the possibility for close cooperation with the International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials (IMPRS-CPQM). We expect you to fulfil teaching duties within the Faculty of Physics with commitment. Your duties furthermore include participation in self-administration.
To be eligible for the position, you (m/f/x) need to have a doctorate in physics or a related discipline as well as a habilitation or habilitation-equivalent achievements in research and teaching. We furthermore expect you to be familiar with acquiring third-party funding and to be experienced in project and group management. We place special emphasis on top-class publications, strong international contacts, as well as independently acquired and successfullyconducted research projects.
