Part-time employment may be possible upon request. RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich have been certified as family-friendly and also offer dual career programmes. We particularly wish to promote women’s careers and therefore welcome appli­ca­tions from female candidates. Appli­ca­tions from women will be given pre­fe­rence in the case of equal suitability, qualifications, and experience, unless special personal reasons concerning a male candidate outweigh these consi­d­erations. Applications from suitable can­didates with disabilities are expli­citly en­couraged.

Full Professor (W3) in Crystallography,
Faculty of Georesources and Materials Engineering
and Director of the Institute of Neutron Analytics
for Energy Research (Jülich Centre for Neutron Science)

We are seeking an outstanding figure in research and teaching in this field. The starting date is April 1 st 2018. In a joint procedure with For­schungs­zentrum Jülich, RWTH Aachen University is seeking to appoint an interna­ti­o­nally respected scientist to the chair (W3) of the Institute of Crystallo­gra­phy. The successful candidate will also head the newly esta­blished institute JCNS-3 at Forschungszentrum Jülich dedicated to Neu­tron Analytics for Energy Research. The appointee should build a bridge between methodolo­gi­cally oriented research in neutron scattering and basic materials research for energy techno­logy. Access to the neutron instruments operated by JCNS will faci­litate the development of met­hods, for example with respect to in situ and in operando studies. The advertisement therefore addresses interna­tionally respected researchers with major interests in the metho­dology of neutron scattering as well as in research on energy materials. We are see­king a general commitment to materials-related research activities at the Faculty of Georesources and Materials Engineering of RWTH Aachen University, and in particular to the Division of Earth Sciences and Geogra­phy, participation in the re­levant profile areas of RWTH Aachen University, as well as collabora­tion with the Institute of Energy and Climate Research at Forschungs­zentrum Jülich. The ability to head an institute, fulfil the role of pro­fes­sor, and acquire third-party funding is essential. It is expected that the successful candidate will continue and further develop the teaching duties of the chair, which provides basic and advanced courses in the science and engineering teaching of the faculty in crystallography, crystal physics, crystal chemistry, and structure research by means of X-ray and neutron diffraction.

A Ph.D. degree is required; additionally, Habilitation (post-doctoral lec­turing qualification), an exemplary record of research achievement as an assistant / an associate / a junior professor or university re­sear­cher and/or an outstan­ding career outside academia are highly desirable. Ability in and commit­ment to teaching are essential. The application should include supporting documents regarding success in teaching. German is not necessary to begin but will be expected as a teaching language within the first 5 years.
