W3 Professorship in Integrated Quantum Devices and Technologies

March 13, 2023


The University of Stuttgart is one of the leading technically oriented universities in Germany in one of Europe’s most vibrant high-tech and industrial areas. The university is a reliable employer, partner for technology transfer and is committed to the interdisciplinary integration of engineering, natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences based on the fundamentals of cutting-edge research at a disciplinary level.

The professorship should represent the subject area of Integrated Quantum Devices and Technologies in research and teaching. Successful candidates should be experienced in the field of Integrated Quantum Devices and Technologies and their engineering applications, have an international scientific reputation, and be active in several of the teaching and research areas listed below:

  • Integrated active and passive photonic devices
  • Hybrid integration and interconnect technology for quantum devices.
  • Integrated photon sources
  • Integrated quantum devices
  • Devices in silicon and silicon compound semiconductors
  • Device fabrication with molecular beam epitaxy

We are looking for a person with preferably an engineering background in the field of microelectronic and photonic key technologies necessary for the integration of quantum devices. The professorship is associated with the management of the Institute of Semiconductor Technology. Experience in the field of quantum technologies itself is desirable but not mandatory.

Applicants are expected to teach courses in both English and – after a few years – German in the above-mentioned research areas for the Bachelor and Master programs of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology as well as for other programs of the University of Stuttgart. Additionally, successful candidates are expected to participate in interdisciplinary research projects (e. g. Cluster4Future QSens, IQST, SCOPE, and GRK2642) of the University of Stuttgart. In particular, strong networking with the BMBF Cluster4Future “QSens - Quantum Sensors of the Future” is planned. Additional investment and start-up funds from the MWK Baden-Württemberg are available for this purpose. Networking of the institute’s research work both in the publicly funded area and in the rich industrial environment through the active acquisition of third-party funding is expected. Applicants should demonstrate several years of successful work in industry or industry-related research institutions. In this respect, close professional cooperation with the Institute for Microelectronics Stuttgart (IMS CHIPS, ims-chips.com) is particularly desirable.

The requirements for employment listed in § 47 and § 50 Baden-Wuerttemberg university law (LHG) apply.
