Faculty Position in Experimental Physics

The Faculty of Applied Sciences, Department of Quantum Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in Experimental Physics. Consideration of applications for an associate or full professor level position may be given to exceptionally well qualified individuals.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate the ability to develop an independent research program and to participate effectively in the teaching of the applied physics curriculum at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Direct experience in nanoscience is not required, but candidates should be able to connect their research to the ongoing research in the department, while at the same time broadening its scope. Current research in the Department of Quantum Nanoscience is active across many fields, including nanophotonics, (quantum) optomechanics, quantum optics, quantum transport, and condensed matter physics. Prospective candidates who wish to pursue interdisciplinary research efforts are strongly encouraged to apply.

The successful applicant can expect a competitive start-up package to enable a quick start of their independent research program. Considerable institutional resources are available at TU Delft that can strengthen this research program and support interdisciplinary and collaborative research ventures.
