Tenure-track Professorship in Experimental Physics

Ruprecht Karls Heidelberg University


Tenure-track Professorship (W1 with Tenure Track to W3) in Experimental Physics.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Heidelberg University invites applications for a


Tenure-track Professorship (W1 with Tenure Track to W3) in Experimental Physics.



Candidates are expected to develop a strong research program in low energy precision measurements at the boundaries of particle physics and atomic physics. Subject areas could be EDM or axion searches or tests of fundamental symmetries, but are not limited to these. We particularly seek candidates who are interested in small or medium scale experiments exploiting dedicated technologies. The position aims to complement our efforts in the area of precision tests of the Standard Model. It will be located at the Physikalisches Institut and embedded in the active research environment in experimental and theoretical particle physics and atomic physics, both at Heidelberg University and the Max-Planck-Institut fr Kernphysik (MPIK).


In accordance with Section 51 Landeshochschulgesetz Baden-Wrttemberg (the Baden-Wrttemberg State Higher Education Act), this appointment requires a completed university degree, an excellent doctorate, and pedagogical aptitude, which has generally been proven through teaching experience. The professorship is a qualification position and we are thus searching for a young researcher with typically up to six years of experience.


The Tenure-track Professorship (salary grade W1) will initially be limited to six years and, following a positive tenure evaluation, will be converted to a permanent W3 professorship. Provided that the general legal (German civil service law) and budgetary regulations are fulfilled, it is intended that the successful candidate will have civil service status.

Further information on the Tenure-track program (e.g. the evaluation statute) is available at the website of the Human Resource Division (www.uni-heidelberg.de/tenuretrack).


This professorship is funded by the Tenure Track Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States.

The University aims to increase the number of women in areas in which they have been underrepresented in until now. Qualified female academics are especially invited to apply. Preference will be given to disabled applicants who are otherwise equally qualified for the position.
