Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) – The Research University in the Helmholtz Association creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment. It is our goal to make significant contributions to mastering the global challenges of mankind in the fields of energy, mobility, and information. For this, about 9300 employees of KIT cooperate in a broad range of disciplines in research, academic education and innovation. The Department of Physics at KIT, as part of the Physics and Mathematics Division, invites applications for a
Professorship (W3) in Theoretical Particle Physics
at the Institute for Theoretical Physics (successor of Prof. Dr. Dieter Zeppenfeld).
KIT provides an excellent environment for research in particle physics. The Institute for Theoretical Physics is part of the KIT Center Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics (see www.kceta.edu for additional information). KIT hosts the Research Training Group “Particle Physics at Highest Energy and Precision” and the Karlsruhe School of Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics: Science and Technology (KSETA), which provides access to an excellent pool of Ph.D. students.
We are looking for an outstanding scientist working in the area of particle physics phenomenology, broadly defined. We are particularly interested in a scientist whose research focuses on collider physics, precision calculations, physics beyond the Standard Model or flavour physics. The successful applicant is expected to play an active role in the Collaborative Research Center“Particle Physics Phenomenology after the Higgs Discovery” and other coordinated research efforts at KIT.
The successful candidate will be part of a team of senior scientists who maintain and develop the research in particle physics at KIT. The appointed professor is required to teach at all levels of the undergraduate and graduate curriculum (eventually in German) and to supervise bachelor, master and Ph.D. students.
A Habilitation degree or equivalent scientific and teaching qualifications are required. The employment conditions as outlined in Art. 47 LHG (Law of Baden-Württemberg on Universities and Colleges) shall apply.
KIT wishes to increase the proportion of female professors and hence, strongly encourages qualified women to apply. Handicapped applicants having the same qualification will be preferred. Qualified candidates should submit before January 28th, 2019 a curriculum vitae, list of publications, as well as research and teaching statements to: Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT), Dekan der KIT-Fakultät für Physik, 76128 Karlsruhe, Germany, preferably by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information about this position please contact Prof. Dr. Margarete Mühlleitner, email: email@example.com. Since 2010, the KIT has been certified as a family-friendly university.
