Published(92 days ago)
Deadline for applications(5 days ago)
Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT)Karlsruhe
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) – The Research University in the Helmholtz Association creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment.
It is our goal to make significant contributions to mastering the global challenges of humankind in the fields of energy, mobility, and information. For this, about
9,300 employees of KIT cooperate in a broad range of disciplines in research, academic education, and innovation.
In Division III – Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, the KIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology invites applications for the position of
Professor (W3) for Micro- and Nanoelectronic Systems
who is to head the Institute of Micro- and Nanoelectronic Systems (IMS) as of the next possible date.
Applicants are to represent the area of state-of-the-art micro- and nanoelectronics in research, academic education, and innovation. They should have vast expertise
and high reputation in one or several of the following fields of work of micro- and nanoelectronics beyond today’s CMOS technology:
Novel, e.g. superconducting, components and circuits for future quantum information technologies;
Highly precise and ultrafast detectors with a resolution near the quantum limit for fundamental research and technical applications;
Nanoelectronic structures, components, circuits, and associated nanotechnological fabrication methods for future electronics.
Candidates should have internationally outstanding scientific qualification, excellent didactic skills, and leadership experience. Expertise in application-oriented research,
in the acquisition of third-party funds, and in technology transfer (e.g. spinoffs) is desired. KIT offers an excellent interdisciplinary environment at the interface of
engineering and natural sciences, among others within the KIT Centers of Information – Systems – Technologies (KCIST), Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics
(KCETA), and Materials. In future, the professor is to participate in the multidisciplinary “Karlsruhe Center for Optics & Photonics“ (KCOP) that is presently being
established and in the development of its research areas.
In the area of academic education, candidates are expected to actively participate in existing and new German and English study programs offered by the KIT Department of Electrical
Engineering and Information Technology as well as in related programs offered by other departments of KIT. Apart from practice-oriented and specialization courses in
the area of the professorship, this also includes basic lectures of bachelor’s programs.
KIT wishes to increase the proportion of female professors, and, hence, strongly encourages qualified women to apply. Handicapped applicants having the same qualification will be preferred.
The employment conditions as outlined in Art. 47 LHG (Law of Baden-Württemberg on Universities and Colleges) shall apply.
Kindly send your application, including the usual documents in German or English (CV, list of publications, graduation and other certificates, documentation of previous and planned
research and teaching activities) in written and electronic form to the Dekan der KIT-Fakultät für Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik (Dean of the KIT Department of
Electrical Engineering and Information Technology), Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT), Kaiserstr. 12, 76131 Karlsruhe, Germany, email:
