Professorship in experimental astroparticle physics at KIT

Professorship in experimental astroparticle physics at KIT

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) pools its three core tasks of research, higher education, and innovation in a mission. With about 9,400 employees and 25,000 students, KIT is one of the big institutions of research and higher education in natural sciences and engineering in Europe. In Division V, Physics and Mathematics, the Department of Physics at KIT invites applications for a Professorship (W3) in  Experimental Astroparticle Physics (succession of Prof. J. Blümer). The position is based at the Institute for Experimental Particle Physics (ETP) and holds, in addition, the directorship of the Institute for Nuclear Physics (IKP). Both institutes play a leading role in large international experiments, like KATRIN and the Pierre Auger Observatory as well as at CERN and KEK.


Further activities include contributions to IceCube and the search for Dark Matter. We expect an active development of research in experimental Astroparticle Physics and a leading participation in the Helmholtz programs Matter and the Universe and Matter and Technology.


We are seeking an outstanding scientist with background in one or more of the following areas: search for Dark Matter, high-energy astroparticle physics, and neutrino physics. Applicants should have obtained the degree of Habilitation or an equivalent scientific qualification, and are required to have experience in teaching. The appointed professor is expected to teach in German after a reasonable amount of time.


Application deadline is October 2, 2017. Please click here for more information.
