The Technische Universität Kaiserslautern and the Landau Campus of the University of Koblenz-Landau are merging into one new technical university. We are looking for you to help us shape our new university from 2023 at the Kaiserslautern site.


The Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (TUK) is an internationally visible research university with a profile in the natural and engineering sciences. Fundamental research at the university is conducted predominantly in six collaborative research centers and transregional research centers. The ten research departments at the university collaborate closely in their work on important areas of application-oriented research. The TUK is a campus university with short distances and a strong focus on cooperation.


TUK stands for the diversity of all employees. We welcome applications from all interested parties, regardless of their ethnic and social origin, age, religion, gender, disability and sexual orientation or identity. Persons with severe disabilities will be given preference in cases of equal suitability (please add proof). TUK aims to increase the proportion of women in areas where women are underrepresented.


We are seeking:

An internationally recognized individual who can represent Experimental Physics at the TU Kaiserslautern in both research and teaching. The ability to cooperate within the department is expected.


The Department of Physics is centrally involved in four collaborative research centers (SFB 926, SFB/TRR88, SFB/TRR173, SFB/TRR185) and the state research center OPTIMAS. Willingness and ability to participate in coordinated research programs at the site are also expected. The development of new concepts for coordinated research projects is desired.


The candidate must be willing to offer and hold courses in the degree programmes of the Department of Physics. In addition to appropriate scientific qualifications, applicants are expected to have significant didactic skills and teaching experience.


Our requirement profile:

Further requirements are a completed university degree in the natural sciences, a doctorate, above-average publication achievements, successful acquisition of third-party funding, as well as scientific activity post-doctorate, as evidenced by a habilitation or achievement equivalent to a habilitation.


The Federal State of Rhineland-Palatinate and the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern advocate a guidance and support concept that necessitates a strong presence of teachers at their respective university location. In addition to the general contractual requirements, the employment conditions of § 49 of Rhineland-Palatinate’s State Law on Universities and Colleges also apply.


Your application:

We look forward to receiving your meaningful application by May 31, 2022 at the latest. Please submit your application via our application portal (https://jobs.uni-kl.de).


Your contact in the Department of Physics is Prof. Dr. Christiane Ziegler.
