FACULTY POSITION IN EXPERIMENTAL PHYSICS The Faculty of Applied Sciences, Department of Quantum Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Experimental Physics. Consideration of applications at the Associate or Full Professor level position may be given to exceptionally well-qualified individuals.
Candidates must be able to demonstrate the ability to develop a highly successful independent research program and to participate effectively in the teaching of the applied physics curriculum at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Research areas of interest include, but are not limited to, for example, optics and photonics, nanostructure science and technology, novel sensing methods, condensed-matter physics, and materials physics. Direct experience in nanoscience is not required, however, candidates should be able to indicate how their research can contribute to one of the following themes of research, quantum transduction, quantum sensing or (building) quantum materials. Applicants who wish to pursue interdisciplinary research efforts are strongly encouraged to apply. Current research directions in the Department of Quantum Nanoscience include nanophotonics, quantum optomechanics, quantum optics, quantum transport, mesoscopic physics, and condensed-matter physics.
The successful applicant can expect a highly competitive start-up package for their research program. Considerable institutional resources are also available at TU Delft that can further strengthen the research program and support interdisciplinary and collaborative research ventures. Candidates will be appointed on a tenure-track basis with the prospect of a tenured position based on a successful evaluation after 5 years.
TU Delft is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty.
Information and application For more information about this position please contact the head of the Department of Quantum Nanoscience Prof. Dr. L. Kuipers at afdeling-QNemail@example.com.
