Juniorprofessur (m/w/d) für Theoretische Hochenergiephysik mit kalten Atomen

Junior Professorship (m/f/d) in Theoretical High Energy Physics with Cold Atoms

We offer an opportunity for a talented theorectician to jump in and begin to collaborate with the diverse theory and experimental groups at LUH and PTB. Application Deadline: 15.09.2020

The Institute of Theoretical Physics in the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics is recruiting within the Center of Excellence “QuantumFrontiers” in a joint appointment with the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Braunschweig and Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH) for a


Junior Professorship (m/f/d)
in Theoretical High Energy Physics with Cold Atoms


commencing March 1st, 2021, or at a later date in 2021 upon request. 


The theoretical junior professorship will interpret questions and models of particle physics and cosmology in the context of precision measurements in atomic and molecular physics and pursue new approaches to modelling at the boundaries of these theories. This will be done in close cooperation with the various precision experiments, such as the optical clocks and matter wave interferometers already available at the LUH and PTB. Examples include the development of search strategies for previously unknown fields such as dark matter or dark energy, as well as the search for other physics beyond the standard model of particle physics using cold and well-controllable atoms and molecules.
