The Institute for Theoretical Physics of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Heidelberg University announces an opening for a FULL PROFESSORSHIP (W3) IN THEORETICAL PHYSICS.
We are looking for an internationally recognized theorist working on quantum physics in the context of quantum simulation, physical aspects of information theory, and the foundations of new methods of information processing and computation. The new professor should establish contact to the Heidelberg research groups in experimental and theoretical physics, and in particular provide theoretical perspectives for future experiments. This professorship is a key component in the Heidelberg cluster of excellence STRUCTURES and in the newly established focus area physics of information/novel methods of computation at the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
The successful candidate is expected to participate in the teaching program in theoretical physics at all levels and play a leading role in joint grant applications at the Institute for Theoretical Physics.
