Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty II

Tech­nis­che Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin, Fac­ulty II - Math­em­at­ics and Nat­ural Sci­ences, Insti­tute of The­or­et­ical Phys­ics, invi­tes app­lic­a­tions for a

Uni­ver­sity Pro­fes­sor - salary grade W3

for the chair of "The­or­et­ical Phys­ics with a focus on Con­densed Mat­ter The­ory".

Work­ing field:

Applic­ants are expec­ted to teach the field of The­or­et­ical Phys­ics in the entire breadth and depth and to par­ti­cip­ate in all teach­ing activ­it­ies of the Insti­tute of The­or­et­ical Phys­ics. In research they should rep­res­ent “The­or­et­ical Phys­ics with a focus on Con­densed Mat­ter The­ory“. Teach­ing require­ments shall be met in Ger­man and Eng­lish. Can­did­ates are expec­ted to super­vise stu­dents’ theses on Bach­elor, Mas­ter and PhD level as well as to par­ti­cip­ate in the aca­demic admin­is­tra­tion of the uni­versity.


Can­did­ates must ful­fill the require­ments for appoint­ment at the pro­fessor level in com­pli­ance with § 100 Ber­lHG (Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act). These include a com­pleted aca­demic edu­ca­tion in phys­ics or a com­par­able dis­cip­line, qual­i­fied achieve­ments in research (doc­tor­ate in phys­ics or a com­par­able dis­cip­line), addi­tional aca­demic achieve­ments and ped­ago­gical-didactic qual­i­fic­a­tions, demon­strated by rel­ev­ant teach­ing exper­i­ence and visu­al­ized in a teach­ing port­fo­lio (for fur­ther inform­a­tion see TUB web­site, quick access 144242).
We are look­ing for an out­stand­ing and inter­na­tional lead­ing sci­ent­ist with excel­lent sci­entific achieve­ments to strengthen and to fur­ther develop the pro­file of the Insti­tutes of Phys­ics in the field of The­or­et­ical Phys­ics. The research of the new pro­fess­or­ship should focus on new meth­ods and sub­jects by con­cen­trat­ing on top­ical research fields in the the­ory of con­densed mat­ter with spe­cial emphasis on the nonequi­lib­rium. The whole spec­trum of top­ics is of interest ran­ging from quantum-mech­an­ical prob­lems to soft mat­ter and to bio­phys­ical sys­tems includ­ing paradig­matic the­or­ies.
The Insti­tute of The­or­et­ical Phys­ics already hosts inter­na­tion­ally recog­nized research groups in the fields of soft mat­ter, bio­lo­gical phys­ics, non­lin­ear dynam­ics and the many-body quantum the­ory of trans­port and optics. The research of the suc­cess­ful can­did­ate is expec­ted to mean­ing­fully extent and com­ple­ment these activ­it­ies. Please explain on a one-page memo how you con­nect to these activ­it­ies. Also, exper­i­ence/activ­ity in third-party fund­ing and con­trib­ut­ing to joint research activ­it­ies of the Phys­ical Insti­tutes is anti­cip­ated.

How to ap­ply:

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin is determ­ined to increase the pro­por­tion of women in research and
teach­ing and there­fore strongly encour­ages qual­i­fied female research­ers to apply. Qual­i­fied indi­vidu­als with dis­ab­il­it­ies will be favored. The TU Ber­lin val­ues the diversity of its mem­bers and is com­mit­ted to the goals of equal oppor­tun­it­ies. In the con­text of the stra­tegic inter­na­tion­al­iz­a­tion pro­cess, TU Ber­lin assumes the recruited aca­demic teach­ing staff's abil­ity to con­duct classes in Eng­lish.

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin is a cer­ti­fied fam­ily-friendly higher edu­ca­tion insti­tu­tion, and our Dual Career Ser­vice offers assist­ance to you and your fam­ily when relo­cat­ing to Ber­lin.
