Pro­fess­or­ship in Exper­i­mental Phys­ics with a focus on Photonic Quantum Com­mu­nic­a­tion Sys­tems

Technical University Berlin

Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty II

As part of the fed­eral and state pro­gram for the advance­ment of junior schol­ars, Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin, Fac­ulty II - Math­em­at­ics and Nat­ural Sci­ences, cur­rently has a vacancy at the Insti­tute of Solid State Phys­ics, for a

ten­ure track pro­fess­or­ship, remu­ner­a­tion group W1, fixed term, to be con­tin­ued as a life­time pro­fess­or­ship, remu­ner­a­tion group W2
in "Exper­i­mental Phys­ics with a Focus on Photonic Quantum Com­mu­nic­a­tion Sys­tems".

This pro­fess­or­ship should be seen in the con­text of Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin’s goal to recruit and advance junior schol­ars in the early stage of their career.
The ten­ure track pro­fess­or­ship is ini­tially lim­ited to three years. The pos­i­tion shall be renewed for a fur­ther three years con­di­tional upon the pos­tholder’s per­form­ance and agree­ment. After six years, as a rule, a lifelong pro­fess­or­ship will be offered con­di­tional upon the ful­fill­ment of the determ­ined eval­u­ation cri­teria and hir­ing require­ments for a lifelong pro­fess­or­ship. Inform­a­tion about the eval­u­ation cri­teria can be found on Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin’s web­site, quick access 195779 (https://www.naturwissenschaften.tu-berlin.de/menue/service/berufungen/parameter/en/).

Work­ing field:

Inter­na­tion­ally excel­lent research in photonic quantum net­works and quantum com­mu­nic­a­tion, devel­op­ment of prac­tical nan­o­photonic quantum devices, imple­ment­a­tion of quantum key dis­tri­bu­tion pro­to­cols using non-clas­sical light sources in free-space and fiber-coupled quantum chan­nels, imple­ment­a­tion of the quantum repeater pro­tocol. The devel­op­ment of cur­ricula, the par­ti­cip­a­tion in col­lab­or­at­ive research and the aca­demic admin­is­tra­tion are part of the assign­ment.

Require­ments:

The can­did­ate must ful­fil the hir­ing require­ments pur­su­ant to Sec­tion 102c Ber­lin State Higher Edu­ca­tion Act in com­bin­a­tion with Sec­tion 102a Ber­lin State Higher Edu­ca­tion Act. Of par­tic­u­lar import­ance are a uni­versity degree in Phys­ics or a related sub­ject, demon­strated, as a rule, by an out­stand­ing doc­tor­ate in Phys­ics as well as teach­ing skills demon­strated by a teach­ing port­fo­lio (for fur­ther inform­a­tion about the port­fo­lio, see Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin’s web­site, quick access 144242).
We are look­ing for a sci­ent­ist with inter­na­tion­ally recog­nized sci­entific achieve­ments in nan­o­photon­ics and photonic quantum tech­no­lo­gies. We expect effi­cient col­lab­or­a­tions with other research groups at the Tech­nical Uni­versity of Ber­lin, the abil­ity to lead a research team, and to man­age com­plex pro­jects. Exper­i­ence in acquir­ing third party fund­ing is wel­comed.

The applic­ant should have extens­ive com­pet­ence and exper­i­ence in at least three of the fol­low­ing research areas:
  • Semi­con­ductor nan­o­photon­ics
  • Quantum light sources
  • Quantum memor­ies
  • Imple­ment­a­tion of quantum key dis­tri­bu­tion pro­to­cols
  • Semi­con­ductor and/or solid state quantum optics
  • Single-photon fre­quency and band­width con­ver­sion
  • Glass-fiber tech­no­logy

TU Ber­lin expects from its pro­fess­ors the abil­ity to take respons­ib­il­ity for lead­er­ship and stra­tegic devel­op­ment of their research group and their employ­ees. That includes activ­it­ies in pro­mot­ing junior and female research­ers, gender and diversity com­pet­en­cies in the sense of diversity sens­it­ive work­ing and study con­di­tions, sub­stan­tial impulses in research and teach­ing as well as con­tri­bu­tion to aca­demic admin­is­tra­tion. Inter­dis­cip­lin­ary cooper­a­tions, ini­ti­at­ives in sci­ence com­mu­nic­a­tion as well as sci­ence and tech­no­logy trans­fer are very wel­come. As uni­versity with an inter­na­tional pro­file, we expect good know­ledge of the Eng­lish lan­guage. Non-Ger­man speak­ing applic­ants are expli­citly wel­come while expec­ted to learn Ger­man quickly.

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.
Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin offers its ten­ure track pro­fess­ors struc­tured ment­or­ing to sup­port their pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment. The uni­versity val­ues the diversity of its mem­bers and is com­mit­ted to equal­ity of oppor­tun­ity. It is a cer­ti­fied fam­ily-friendly uni­versity and its Dual Career Ser­vice can assist you and your fam­ily with your move to Ber­lin.
