Professorship at Bonn University

Submitted by alicesec on

The Department of Physics and Astronomy in the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Bonn invites applications for a  Professorship (W2) for Experimental Physics Hadron Physics at the Helmholtz-Institut für Strahlen- und Kernphysik.

Hadron physics together with elementary particle physics is one of the main research areas of the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the university. The experimental hadron physics groups conduct research at the local accelerator ELSA as well as at external laboratories with the experiments GlueX at JLab, PANDA at FAIR, and ALICE, COMPASS/AMBER, and LHCb at CERN.   

The research focus of the professorship is expected to be in the field of hadron physics and should extend and strengthen the existing research activities at ELSA. In collaboration with the local groups, the professorship is expected to play a central role in the planning and realization of future experiments at ELSA. Candidates should have an outstanding research profile in the field of hadron physics, in developing and building detector systems as well as in software developments and data analysis. 

Participation in existing and future collaborative research projects is expected as well as a significant contribution to the new “Research and Technology Centre Detector Physics” (FTD) at the University of Bonn.

Applications are requested by 09/30/2023 through the application web portal of the University of Bonn ( More information can be found in the attached document.
Any questions should be directed to the office of the Physics and Astronomy Department (
