The Department of Physics within the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf invites applications for an
Associate Professorship (W2) in “Biomedical Physics“
We are seeking a researcher (m/f/d) with a strong scientific background in Experimental Biomedical Physics. This includes the fields of Biomedical Optics, Biophysics or Soft Matter with medical focus. Potential research topics include the properties of bio- and nanotechnological materials or transport processes in biological matter. The application of artificial intelligence is a mandatory part in the prospective research. The research field should complement the present research activities within the Department of Physics and the Medical Faculty at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf and should strengthen the B.Sc. and M.Sc. courses of study in “Medical Physics”. We expect cooperativeness with topic-related research groups within the natural sciences, in particular within the Department of Physics and the Medical Faculty. Candidates (m/f/d) must have a track record of publications relevant to the designated field, an internationally recognised research profile, and readiness to participate in coordinated programme initiatives in Medical Physics and Soft Matter. Experience in the acquisition of competitive third-party funding is preferred. We expect a commitment to institutional self-governance and academic teaching within the courses of study in Medical Physics, Physics, and Physics as Minor Subject. Experience in teaching and supervision of students is advantageous.
Applicants (m/f/d) will be hired in accordance with the general prerequisites pertaining to service law of section 36 of the North Rhine-Westphalia University Act (Hochschulgesetz NRW), which require an aptitude for teaching, exceptional competence in research, and additional scientific achievements.
