Job Opening: Tenure-Track-Professorship on Quantum Control of Spins on Surfaces

In Division V – Physics and Mathematics, the KIT Department of Physics invites applications for a Tenure-Track-Professorship on Quantum Control of Spins on Surfaces (W1) at the Physikalisches Institut. The research focus of this professorship includes the study of nanoscale magnetic quantum systems on surfaces (e.g. single atom spins, nuclear spins, spin centers in molecules), which will be controlled by scanning probe microscopy.
Closing date for applications is 11 July 2021.
