The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) invites applications for the position of a W3-Professorship of Experimental Physics at the Physikalisches Institut of the Department of Physics. The tentative starting date is April 1st, 2015.

We seek an outstanding scientist working in experimental low temperature condensed matter physics focusing on quantum-mechanical correlations and coherence in hybrid quantum systems. Possible research fields include coupling between electronic and mechanical degrees of freedom, quantum optomechanics, hybrid quantum systems with spin degrees of freedom, as well as detection and manipulation of single photons in solid state systems. Extensive infrastructure for low temperature physics is available at the Institute. The appointed professor is expected to strengthen and expand the existing and planned collaborative research efforts.

Teaching duties include the participation in lecture courses covering basic and advanced experimental physics at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Our courses for the core curriculum are usually held in German and the new professor is expected to teach in German within a reasonable time frame. Applicants must have a habilitation degree, or demonstrate an equivalent academic qualification. Experience in teaching is expected.

KIT aims to increase the number of female professors and especially welcomes applications from women. Applicants with disabilities with equal qualifications will be preferred. Applications with the usual resumé (including a summary of teaching experience, a research plan and the five most important publications), should be sent by June 16th, 2014 to:
