The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Heidelberg University invites applications for a Full Professorship (W3) in Experimental Physics.

Candidates (f/m/d) are expected to develop a strong research program in experimental particle physics by searching for physics beyond the Standard Model through precision measurements. Possible subject areas could be dark matter and axion searches, collider or non-collider based neutrino physics, or research at high-intensity low-energy beams. The position is located at the Kirchhoff-Institut für Physik (KIP) and aims to complement our efforts in high-energy particle physics at the LHC. It will be embedded in an active research environment on experimental and theoretical particle physics both at Heidelberg University and the Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik (MPIK).

The professorship is based within the Department for Physics and Astronomy and duties include teaching of experimental physics in its full breadth at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The group will participate in the graduate education program within the Heidelberg Graduate School for Physics (HGSFP).

Prerequisites for application are a university degree, a doctoral degree and (in accordance with Article 47, Paragraph 2 of the Higher Education Law of the Federal State of Baden-Württemberg) a habilitation, a successfully evaluated junior professorship, or equivalent qualifications.

Applications should include a CV, a statement of research interests, a brief description of future research plans, a list of publications and a summary of teaching experience. They should be sent electronically (PDF) only. All materials must be received no later than 16 May 2021 at Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, Dekan der Fakultät für Physik und Astronomie, Prof. Dr Tilman Plehn, Im Neuenheimer Feld 226, D-69120 Heidelberg, e-mail:

We ask for your understanding that application documents received will not be returned.

Heidelberg University stands for equal opportunities and diversity. Qualified female candidates are especially invited to apply. Disabled persons will be given preference if they are equally qualified. Information on the application process and the collection of personal data is available at
