Full Professorship position


The Institute for Nuclear Physics at the University of Münster invites applications for a tenured Full Professorship in Experimental Physics (salary scale W3) starting in October 2017.
Candidates are expected to have a strong track record in the field of heavy-ion physics.

The research programme should strengthen the current research activities of the Institute for Nuclear Physics (Involvement in the experiments
ALICE/CERN and CBM/FAIR) as well as develop further the main research field Particle Physics. Detector development, well established in the institute should play an important role. Close cooperation is expected with the theoretical and experimental groups, especially within coordinated programmes like the existing graduate school “Strong and weak interactions – from hadrons to dark matter”. Teaching obligations cover the whole area of Experimental Physics.
Candidates are also expected to participate in the academic administration of the faculty.

Prerequisite for the application are a PhD and outstanding teaching skills, as well as academic achievements made as a Juniorprofessor
(assistant professor), in a Habilitation (postdoctoral qualification), as a member of the academic staff of a university or non-university research institute, or in a research position in business, administration or other relevant fields in Germany or abroad.

The University of Münster is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the proportion of senior women academics.
Consequently, we actively encourage applications by women. Female candidates with equivalent qualifications and academic achievements
will be preferentially considered within the framework of the legal possibilities. We also welcome applications from candidates with
severe disabilities. Disabled candidates with equivalent qualifications will be preferentially considered.

Applications with a CV, including teaching experience and publication list, copies of degree certificates, and a statement of research interests,
shall be submitted in written form until November 14, 2016 to the :
