Assistant or Associate Professor (Tenure Track) in Applied Material Physics

Assistant or Associate Professor (Tenure Track) in Applied Material Physics

University of Jyväskylä - Department of Physics

Jyväskylä, Finland

This recruitment is particularly aimed at strengthening research and teaching in applied material physics. Interdisciplinary nanoscience is one of the focus areas of the faculty's research, and material physics is one of its most central components. With the recruitment, the materials structure research group will be integrated in close connection with the Nanoscience Center.

Qualifications we are looking for

The responsibilities of assistant/associate professors include internationally high-level research and teaching related to their research area.

Primarily, we are looking for a person whose field of research is experimental materials physics using imaging methods. These methods can be photon, electron, or ion beam based. Experience in using X-ray tube and synchrotron-based methods is desirable as well as strong experience in applying analysis or imaging methods to material research. We also expect a strong vision for the utilisation and development of the research infrastructure relevant to this position at the University of Jyväskylä and in international cooperation. In addition to this, we appreciate the management of advanced image analysis techniques (including 3D imaging). Previous experience in interdisciplinary cooperation with biologists, chemists and engineers, for example, is considered as an advantage, as well as previous experience in business cooperation. Research experience and research ideas regarding the green transition are also considered an asset. We hope that the applicant's experience will support the current research areas of the Department of Physics, but we also expect the Assistant Professor to bring new research openings to the faculty.

The teaching responsibilities of assistant/associate professors include lectures and other courses of physics ranging from basic courses to postgraduate ones. The tasks include advising students and supervising theses at the bachelor, master, and postgraduate levels. Additionally, assistant/associate professors are involved in societal interaction as experts. The assistant/associate professor participates in managerial research and administrative tasks, the continuous development of education, the acquisition of research funding, and demanding specialist tasks. 

Candidates should have an excellent record of conducting and publishing scientific research, establishing international networks, acquiring external funding, and teaching.
