The professorship is expected to focus on quantum optical components and their integration into macroscopic systems for quantum metrology, e.g. for gravitational wave detectors or atom clocks. The quantum metrology activities should include chip design and processing of semiconductor based structures and devices, as well as their analysis and further development by metrological methods. The potential alignment with projects of partners from the Excellence Cluster QuantumFrontiers as well as the research center LENA will be one of the key criteria.
The requirements of the position are defined in Section 25 of the Lower Saxony Higher Education Act (Niedersächsisches Hochschulgesetz). The applicant should be internationally renowned in all of the above-mentioned fields. We expect commitment for participating in collaborative research projects, publications in internationally recognized scientific journals as well as high level teaching. Former research experience in an international environment will be acknowledged. Important criteria will be the synergy with activities in the Excellence Cluster Quantum Frontiers. In terms of lecturing, the professorship will be part of the bachelor and master programs of the Department of Electrical Engineering, Information Technology, and Physics.
