Junior-Professorship (W1) for Experimental physics with Tenure Track to W3

Quantum physics and quantum technology


The research area of the professorship should be experimental quantum physics and/or quantum technology with optical methods. Possible topics, supported by a strong publication record, are for example quantum networks, quantum matter with topological properties, or optical quantum systems. We are looking for candidates who fit into the broad spectrum of the Cluster of Excellence “Matter and Light for Quantum Computing” and who complement existing expertise. Participation in the Collaborative Research Centre/Transregio 185 “OSCAR – Open System Control of Atomic and Photonic Matter” is desirable.

Teaching according to the teaching commitment of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia is an integral part to this position. Giving lectures at all qualification levels is required. Therefore relevant teaching experience is expected.

The conditions of employment are according to § 36 Hochschulgesetz NRW. The University of Bonn actively supports diversity and equal opportunities. The University of Bonn has been certified as a family-friendly university and offers a dual career programme. Its aim is to increase the proportion of women in those fields in which women are underrepresented and to place a special focus on promoting their careers. Therefore, the university specifically requests applications from suitably qualified women. Applications will be handled in accordance with the Equal Opportunities Act of North Rhine-Westphalia.
