Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Phy­sics, Insti­tute of Solid-State and Mate­ri­als Phy­sics (IFM)

Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den (TUD), as a Uni­ver­sity of Excel­lence, is one of the lea­ding and most dyna­mic rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons in the coun­try. Foun­ded in 1828, today it is a glo­bally ori­en­ted, regio­nally ancho­red top uni­ver­sity as it focu­ses on the grand chal­len­ges of the 21st cen­tury. lt deve­lops inno­va­tive solu­ti­ons for the world's most pres­sing issues. In rese­arch and aca­de­mic pro­grams, the uni­ver­sity unites the natu­ral and engi­nee­ring sci­en­ces with the huma­nities, social sci­en­ces and medi­cine. This wide range of disci­pli­nes is a spe­cial fea­ture, faci­li­ta­ting inter­di­sci­pli­na­rity and trans­fer of sci­ence to society. As a modern employer, it offers attrac­tive working con­di­ti­ons to all employees in tea­ching, rese­arch, tech­no­logy and admi­nis­tra­tion. The goal is to pro­mote and deve­lop their indi­vi­dual abi­li­ties while empowering ever­yone to reach their full poten­tial. TUD embo­dies a uni­ver­sity cul­ture that is cha­rac­te­ri­zed by cos­mo­po­li­ta­nism, mutual appre­cia­tion, thri­ving inno­va­tion and active par­ti­ci­pa­tion. For TUD diver­sity is an essen­tial fea­ture and a qua­lity cri­ter­ion of an excel­lent uni­ver­sity. Accord­in­gly, we wel­come all app­li­cants who would like to com­mit them­sel­ves, their achie­ve­ments and pro­duc­tivity to the suc­cess of the whole insti­tu­tion.

Chair (W3) of Nanos­cale Quan­tum Mate­ri­als

At the Faculty of Phy­sics, the Insti­tute of Solid-State and Mate­ri­als Phy­sics (IFM), for the Clus­ter of Excel­lence ct.qmat invi­tes app­li­ca­ti­ons for the

Chair (W3) of Nanos­cale Quan­tum Mate­ri­als

to be fil­led as of April 1, 2024.

Working field:

We are loo­king for a sci­en­tist able to com­pre­hen­si­vely rep­re­sent the field of “Expe­ri­men­tal Con­den­sed Mat­ter Phy­sics’’ in rese­arch and tea­ching. Your rese­arch should focus on the field of nanos­cale quan­tum mate­ri­als. The chair is embed­ded into the Clus­ter of Excel­lence ct.qmat, in which phe­no­mena, mate­ri­als, and app­li­ca­ti­ons of topo­lo­gi­cal phy­sics are stu­died. If you can actively con­tri­bute to streng­t­he­ning this modern rese­arch area with a long-term per­spec­tive, e.g. via design, pre­pa­ra­tion, and inves­ti­ga­tion of quan­tum mate­ri­als in form of thin films, hybrid or hetero-struc­tures, late­ral nano­st­ruc­tures, or 2D mate­ri­als, you ful­fil a cen­tral cri­ter­ion for being appoin­ted. In addi­tion to active rese­arch wit­hin ct.qmat, your par­ti­ci­pa­tion in other col­la­bo­ra­tive rese­arch activi­ties is expli­citly desi­red. There is the pos­si­bi­lity for close coope­ra­tion with the Inter­na­tio­nal Max Planck Rese­arch School for Che­mi­stry and Phy­sics of Quan­tum Mate­ri­als (IMPRS-CPQM). We expect you to ful­fil tea­ching duties wit­hin the Faculty of Phy­sics with com­mit­ment. Your duties fur­ther­more include par­ti­ci­pa­tion in self-admi­nis­tra­tion.


To be eli­gi­ble for the posi­tion, you (m/f/x) need to have a doc­to­rate in phy­sics or a rela­ted disci­pline as well as a habi­li­ta­tion or habi­li­ta­tion-equi­va­lent achie­ve­ments in rese­arch and tea­ching. We fur­ther­more expect you to be fami­liar with acqui­ring third-party fun­ding and to be expe­ri­en­ced in pro­ject and group manage­ment. We place spe­cial empha­sis on top-class publi­ca­ti­ons, strong inter­na­tio­nal con­tacts, as well as inde­pendently acqui­red and suc­cess­fully con­duc­ted rese­arch pro­jects. You should be able to give cour­ses in both Ger­man and Eng­lish. Imme­diate pro­fi­ci­ency in Ger­man is not a pre­re­qui­site, but we expect you to acquire suf­fi­ci­ent lan­guage skills wit­hin a rea­son­able period of time to con­duct tea­ching and admi­nis­tra­tive tasks in Ger­man. App­li­cants must ful­fil the employ­ment qua­li­fi­ca­tion requi­re­ments of § 58 of the Act on the Auto­nomy of Insti­tu­ti­ons of Hig­her Edu­ca­tion in the Free State of Sax­ony (SächsHSFG).

How to apply:

TU Dres­den stri­ves to employ more women in aca­de­mia and rese­arch. We the­re­fore expressly encou­rage women to apply. The Uni­ver­sity is a cer­ti­fied family-fri­endly uni­ver­sity and offers a Dual Career Ser­vice. We wel­come app­li­ca­ti­ons from can­di­da­tes with disa­bi­li­ties. If mul­ti­ple can­di­da­tes prove to be equally qua­li­fied, those with disa­bi­li­ties or with equi­va­lent sta­tus pur­suant to the Ger­man Social Code IX (SGB IX) will receive prio­rity for employ­ment. If you have any ques­ti­ons about these topics, please con­tact the Equal Oppor­tu­nities Offi­cer of the Faculty of Phy­sics (Ms. Mag­da­lena Mico­loi, phone +49 351 463-37807) or the Rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Employees with Disa­bi­li­ties (Mr. Roberto Lemm­rich, phone +49 351 463-33175).

Please sub­mit your app­li­ca­tion (inclu­ding a com­pre­hen­sive CV, a descrip­tion of your rese­arch inte­rests empha­sising achie­ve­ments and future goals, a list of publi­ca­ti­ons and of third-party-fun­ded pro­jects acqui­red, a com­pi­la­tion of cour­ses taught incl. the results of eva­lua­ti­ons, pre­fer­a­bly of the last three years, and a copy of the cer­ti­fi­cate of your hig­hest aca­de­mic degree) as hard copy to TU Dres­den, Dekan der Fakul­tät Phy­sik, Herrn Prof. Dr. Cars­ten Timm, Helm­holtz­str. 10, 01069 Dres­den, Ger­many until May 5, 2023 (stam­ped arri­val date of the uni­ver­sity cen­tral mail ser­vice app­lies) or as a sin­gle PDF file via the TU Dres­den Secu­re­Mail Por­tal to

About ct.qmat
The Clus­ter of Excel­lence „Com­ple­xity and Topo­logy in Quan­tum Mat­ter“ is a joint pro­ject of Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den and Julius-Maxi­mi­li­ans-Uni­ver­si­tät Würz­burg, fun­ded through the Excel­lence Stra­tegy of the Ger­man Government since Janu­ary 2019. ct.qmat unites 300 sci­en­tists of both uni­ver­si­ties and five non-uni­ver­sity rese­arch insti­tu­tes from the areas of phy­sics, che­mi­stry, and mate­ri­als sci­ence. ct.qmat’s basic rese­arch aims to under­stand, design, and con­trol solid-state-based topo­lo­gi­cal sys­tems.
