The Department of Physics of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin invites applications for a

Tenured W2 Professorship for "Complex Nanostructures",

to be appointed from 01.10.2021.

The research program of this experimental physics professorship is dedicated to the elucidation of fundamental physical questions pertaining to modern and emerging functional materials, whereby the nanoscale nature of the materials is due their intrinsic low-dimensional structure (2D, 1D, 0D). The goal will be to create complex functional structures that enable novel electronic and opto-electronic properties with potential for applications.

The professorship is expected to make cutting-edge contributions to the understanding of processes, such as transport and conversion of quasi-particles in complex, inhomogeneous energy landscapes. Success in the acquisition of third-party funding, such as for an independent junior research group or an ERC Grant, is expressly desired, as is the willingness to jointly develop collaborations and research consortia at the Adlershof Campus of Humboldt-Universität.

The applicants must meet the legal requirements for professorial appointments in accordance with § 100 of the Berliner Hochschulgesetz.

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin aims to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and strongly encourages qualified female scientists to apply. It is a family-friendly university and information about the family situation of applicants is therefore welcome. Applications from people abroad or with a migration background are welcome. Severely disabled persons will be given preferential consideration in case of equal qualification.
