We are looking for an internationally highly qualified person with a proven track record of high international quality to establish a worldwide visible research field at TU Darmstadt.
Possible research topics include, but are not restricted to, quantum spin systems, quantum sensors, 2D-layer systems, quantum dots, nanomechanical oscillators or circuit-QED systems. Possible applications are, for example, quantum computation, generating new quantum states of condensed matter with novel physical properties in a controlled way or sensing properties of liquid, soft, and amorphous matter. The candidate should have a strong experimental background in the field of hybrid quantum systems.
The successful appointee will be expected to lead a dynamic research effort in this area. This will involve hiring one further professor in this field within the near future. Therefore, we expect to establish interactions with the existing groups in the Institute of Condensed Matter Physics as well as a link-building to the activities to our groups in Modern Optics. Outside the Department of Physics, cooperation opportunities may arise, in particular, with groups in the Departments of Materials Science, Electrical Engineering and Chemistry.
Besides excellent research activities, the position holder has to be able and willing to teach the full program of experimental physics.
