Position of a Professor of Theoretical Physics (Nanophysics) at the University of Graz

At the Institute of Physics at the Faculty of Natural Sciences, the University of Graz is seeking to appoint a Professor of Theoretical Physics (Nanophysics) (40 hours per week; selection procedure in accordance with Section 98 of the Universities Act (UG); permanent employment according to the Salaried Employees Act (AngG); expected starting date October 1st 2020)

For this professorship we are seeking an outstanding scientific personality who will complement and expand the existing expertise at the Institute of Physics in the field of solid-state or nano physics and be responsible for teaching the subject of theoretical physics. We expect the core research area to be the theoretical description of optical and electronic properties of nanostructures. A topical overlap with the experimental groups in nano optics, surface science, or nano and quantum materials located in Graz is preferred. The teaching duties of the successful candidate will include teaching the basics of theoretical physics and research oriented special topics in master’s and doctoral programmes, as well as supervising bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral theses. The University of Graz and the Graz University of Technology aim to join their physics institutes into a combined "Graz Centre of Physics" (GCP), within the framework of the strategic inter-university cooperation NAWI Graz. The successful candidate is expected to actively contribute to this effort and collaborate with the participating groups from other disciplines at the research locations in Graz.

Employment requirements:

  • Austrian or equivalent foreign higher education degree corresponding with the position (doctorate/PhD)
  • Habilitation or equivalent qualification in Theoretical Physics or Chemistry
  • Outstanding academic qualifications in research and teaching in the relevant discipline and for the profile of the professorship (commensurate with stage of academic career)
  • Success in attracting subject-specific project grants, particularly where competitively awarded third-party funds are concerned
  • Skills in higher education didactics
  • Skills in the supervision and guidance of early career researchers
  • Professional experience abroad during academic career
  • Management and leadership experience
  • Gender mainstreaming skills
  • The candidate is expected to demonstrate his/her educational and didactic aptitude. This also includes skills in the supervision and guidance of junior researchers.

The successful candidate will be highly motivated, aiming for academic excellence and integrity in research and teaching. He/she will have demonstrated ability to collaborate constructively in a responsible manner and inspire colleagues and students in an interdisciplinary, internationally oriented context.

Postdoc position at the TU Vienna

The Experimental Particle Physics group, a joint working group of the Institute of Atomic and Subatomic Physics at the Technische Universität Wien and the Institute of High Energy Physics (HEPHY) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, is a member of the experiments NUCLEUS, searching for coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering, and COSINUS and CRESST, both searching directly for Dark Matter. In all three experiments, the group is in charge of the data acquisition development and of the background simulation.

We are looking for postdoctoral fellow working on the background simulation of the CRESST experiment.

The candidate should have a PhD in experimental particle physics and a solid background in astroparticle physics. Expertise in Monte Carlo simulation techniques using the Geant4 code and solid programming skills in C++ are mandatory. Additional expertise in data analysis with ROOT is of advantage.

The successful candidate will investigate as part of CRESST’s simulation team the various background components observed with the CRESST experiment. The identification of the individual background sources requires an accurate simulation of the full experimental set-up, considering both intrinsic and ambient contributions. As CRESST is one of the world leading experiments searching for low mass Dark Matter, special attention has to be given to a precise modelling of the detector response at the sub-keV energy regime. The candidate will work closely with CRESST’s material assay and data analysis teams to normalize the simulation to measured contamination levels and to validate the background model against calibration measurements. The outcome of the simulations will be also a valuable feedback to the detector development of CRESST. The candidate can also contribute to the simulation efforts of the COSINUS and the NUCLEUS experiments, which have similar requirements like CRESST. Contributions to the ongoing operation und planned upgrade of the CRESST experiment at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (LNGS) in Italy are expected.

The position will be opened for a period of six years. Contributions to teaching at the Technische Universität Wien are expected.

The closing date for the submission of applications is February 27th, 2020.
