Junior Professorship of grade W1 with tenure-track on a University professorship of grade W2 for
Quantum Information and Gravity
at the Institute for Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics, Faculty of Physics and Astronomy, Julius Maximilians University Würzburg. The junior professorship is to be filled on a temporary basis as a civil servant for an initial period of three years. The temporary civil service relationship is to be extended on probation for a total duration of up to six years. The tenure and appointment as a University professor of grade W2 in a civil servant relationship for life shall only be granted if the junior professor has proven their skills in accordance with the University's internal quality assurance concept. This tenure-track professorship is funded by the Bund-Länder Programm for the Promotion of Young Academics (Tenure-Track Program).
We welcome applications from excellent and internationally renowned candidates (m/f/d) in the field of Theoretical Physics, in particular in the area of “Quantum Information and Gravity”, in order to further strengthen or complement the faculty’s research activities and those of the Dresden-Würzburg Center of Excellence ct.qmat. The research interests of the successful applicant will focus on establishing and exploring connections between quantum information and gravity. Relativistic quantum field theory, quantum gravity, tensor networks, non-equilibrium dynamics or foundations of machine learning may play an important role. We envision that the specific research area of the successful candidate enriches the faculty’s existing research program in terms of research topics and methods and provides new possibilities for interdisciplinary collaboration between different branches of physics.
The University of Würzburg is an equal opportunities and family-friendly employer. In order to increase the number of women in leading positions, we particularly encourage women to apply.
Severely disabled applicants will be given preference if they are otherwise equally qualified.
