University Professorship (W3) for "Scattering of x-rays/electrons at interfaces in time domain applications"
University of Duisburg-Essen
We are a young, innovative university located in the
heart of the Ruhr metropolis. We pride ourselves in
outstanding research and teaching, think in terms
of opportunities rather than limitations and develop
ideas with a view to the future. Diversity is an
integral part of our culture as we promote potential
and are committed to upholding genuine equity in education.
RESOLV (Ruhr Explores Solvation) is a world-leading interdisciplinary
research institution in Solvation Science awarded as a Cluster of
Excellence by the German Excellence Strategy. Within RESOLV, scientists
from six institutions in the Ruhr area covering experimental chemistry,
theory and chemical engineering investigate how solvents are involved
in the control, mediation and regulation of chemical reactions and
processes. RESOLV‘s mission stretches from fundamental research to the
translation into applications, including chemical energy conversion and
At the University of Duisburg-Essen, in the Faculty of Physics, the
following vacancy can be filled at the earliest possible point in time:
(Bes.-Gr. W 3 LBesO W) for “Scattering
of x-rays/electrons at interfaces in time
We seek a colleague with a focus on innovative techniques employing
ultrashort x-ray photon and/or high energy electron pulses in scattering,
imaging or spectroscopy experiments in the time domain. With an
experimental program performed in house and at user facilities, the
prospective colleague should offer a clearly defined perspective to address
scientific questions involving dynamical processes at the liquid/solid,
liquid/2D material or liquid/complex heterostructure interfaces. Close
collaboration with the Collaborative Research Center 1242 and the
RESOLV Cluster of Excellence is expected.
Applicants should demonstrate a vibrant research portfolio through
publications in international peer-reviewed journals and extensive
experience with acquisition and management of competitive third-party
projects. The University of Duisburg-Essen places great emphasis on
excellence in teaching and graduate education. Candidates should present
their teaching concepts, illustrating their commitment to educating the
next generation of scientists, and show their relevance to the teaching
and learning profile of the University of Duisburg-Essen.
For such a colleague we offer a creative and welcoming atmosphere,
underpinned by open discussion and given life by an enthusiastic faculty
and staff committed to creating a stimulating environment for all, and a
scientific setting not available anywhere else. The Faculty of Physics has
a long tradition of collaborative research in the analysis of dynamical
processes in condensed matter. This tradition lives today in the
Collaborative Research Center 1242: Nonequilibrium Dynamics of
Condensed Matter (www.crc1242.de/) largely within the faculty. Beyond
the faculty, the Ruhr region boasts a remarkable concentration of
researchers devoted to all aspects of solvation science, the RESOLV
(Ruhr Explores Solvation) Cluster of Excellence (www.solvation.de), and
its intersection with process-oriented studies of energy conversion and
catalysis on real materials. The successful applicant for this position will
pursue a research program enabled by the presence of both these
communities. Beyond RESOLV and CRC1242 the local research ecosystem
has particular strengths in magnetism, i.e. Collaborative Research Center
TRR270 – Hysteresis design of magnetic materials for efficient energy
conversion and in interdisciplinary nanoscience, i.e. the Center for
Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen: CENIDE (https://www.uni-due.de/cenide/).
The successful candidate will be appointed to a tenured position,
provided with funding for dedicated instrumentation, and supported by
scientific and technical staff at the Duisburg campus. Access to a range of
analytic instrumentation will be provided by the Interdisciplinary Center
for Analytics on the Nanoscale ICAN (www.uni-due.de/ican), and by state-of-the-art equipment at ZEMOS, a research facility at the Ruhr University
of Bochum (www.rub.de/zemos).
The hiring requirements comply with § 36 of the Higher Education Act of
North Rhine-Westphalia (HG).
The University of Duisburg-Essen promotes the diversity of its members
(https://www.uni-due.de/diversity). It strives to increase the percentage
of women in its academic staff and therefore emphatically invites qualified
women to apply. In the case of equal qualifications, female candidates will
be considered with preference (Equal Opportunities Act). As per § 2 Sect. 3
SGB IX, applications by candidates with a disability or equivalent status are
Complete applications should contain a CV, list of publications,
documentation of academic and professional development, copies of
relevant documents and certificates, an exposé of the applicant’s research
profile with explicit description of how it complements and extends
research directions within the University (CRC1242) and within the Ruhr
region (RESOLV), a list of successful external grant applications, a list of
courses taught and a teaching philosophy, and an enumeration of
experience in academic self-administration.
