Applicants are expected to have experience in interdisciplinary research and the necessary skills to develop an internationally recognized fundamental research programme in close collaboration with the experimental groups at CENEM and the widespread research activities of FAU’s key research priority ‘New Materials and Processes’. The successful candidate will further be expected to play an active role in the ‘Interdisciplinary Center for Nanostructured Films’ (IZNF) at FAU.
The position also includes teaching in the curricula of the Department of Materials Science, including courses for students of computational engineering as well as data science. Candidates with experience in computational materials science methods are of particular interest for developing curricular topics in this area.
Highly qualified early-career scholars are especially encouraged to apply. Prerequisites for this position are a university degree and an outstanding doctoral degree as well as a passion for education and teaching. Successful candidates demonstrate initial academic achievements and the capacity for independent research at the highest international standards.
More advanced candidates demonstrate excellent academic achievements in research and teaching at the highest international standards. You have substantial research experience abroad as well as experience in managing research projects and in raising third-party funding. A university degree and an outstanding doctoral degree as well as a passion for education and pertinent teaching experience are prerequisites. Candidates who are able and willing to teach in both English and German are desired. The position also requires additional postdoctoral qualifications. These should be in the form of a habilitation (postdoctoral thesis) or equivalent academic qualifications.
