Universität Hamburg (UHH) is dedicated to sustainability, equal opportunity, and family-friendly policies. We also prize cultural diversity, communication, and interaction among people from different backgrounds and with different lifestyles.

As a University for sustainability, we put human resources development and especially the development and advancement of our young researchers at the fore of our strategic endeavors. By strengthening the tenure-track professorship, UHH has introduced a new career opportunity for young researchers.

Due to the success of the tenure-track program run by the Ministry for Education and Research and to strengthen the University's key research area Photon and Nanosciences UHH invites applications for the following tenure-track professorship:

The Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Natural Sciences invites applications for a


commencing as soon as possible, ref. no. JP 278

The professorship is located in the Department of Physics. The Department of Physics at UHH has excellent research and teaching activities and cooperates with several non-university research institutions. Photon and Nanosciences is one of the University's key research areas. Of particular significance in this connection are quantum physics, the physics of quantum gases, laser physics, ultrafast physics, and physics with free electron lasers. There are numerous ties to solid-state physics and nanostructure physics. The key research area also coordinates, among other things, the Collaborative Research Center "Light-Induced Dynamics and Control of Correlated Quantum Systems" (SFB 925) and the Cluster of Excellence "The Hamburg Centre for Ultrafast Imaging (CUI)".

To strengthen the key research area Photon and Nanosciences at UHH, we are seeking applications from internationally recognized candidates in the field of modern optical quantum technologies. The scientific pursuit of these technologies includes the study of purely photonic systems or hybrid systems coupling solid state or atomic quantum systems to light. Participation in collaborative research initiatives such as the federal Cluster of Excellence CUI: "Structure, Dynamics and Control of Matter at the Atomic Scale" and the Collaborative
Research Center "Light-Induced Dynamics and Control of Correlated Quantum Systems" (SFB 925) is expected. The professorship will be part of the Center for Optical Quantum Technologies (ZOQ) at which experimental and theoretical research in quantum optics, ultrafast, and nanostructure physics are performed in a collaborative spirit.

The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the teaching of lectures, exercise classes and seminars as well as to supervise thesis projects in all of the courses offered by the Department of Physics.

Section 12 subsection 7 sentence 2 of the Hamburg higher education act (Hamburgisches Hochschulgesetz, HmbHG) applies.

Academic qualifications and additional requirements as specified in Section 18 HmbHG.

Further criteria:
Applicants are expected to have international research experience as well as a successful track record in acquiring external funding and carrying out externally funded projects. The University places particular emphasis on the quality of teaching and therefore requests that applicants provide details of their teaching experience and objectives.

The post holder is expected to teach bachelor's students. Classes in bachelor's programs are normally held in German.

As part of their independent academic work, junior professors are also expected to pursue subject ties to the organizational area to ensure synergies in research and teaching.

A tenure-track evaluation will be conducted during the second phase of the junior professorship in order to determine whether requirements for the appointment to a W2 professorship have been met. Section 15 HmbHG applies. If the evaluation is positive, the candidate will be offered a tenured W2 professorship. The regulations prohibiting internal appointments (Hausberufungsverbot) also apply to this junior professorship.

In accordance with Section 14 subsection 3 sentence 3 HmbHG, UHH seeks to increase the proportion of women in teaching and research and encourages female academics to apply.
Qualified disabled candidates or applicants with equivalent status receive preference in the application process.
