Associated with the professorship is the management of the Institute for Microelectronics Stuttgart (IMS CHIPS, www.ims-chips.com) as Managing Director of the Institute in the Jülich model. The Institute for Microelectronics Stuttgart is an application-oriented research institute of the Innovation Alliance Baden-Württemberg with approx. 100 employees, which receives its base financing from the Ministry of Economics of the state of Baden-Württemberg but also has a strong share of industrial funding. In addition, the professorship should represent the area of micro- and nanoelectronic systems in research and teaching. The person sought must be experienced in the field of nano- and microelectronic systems and their industrial applications, have a scientific international reputation, and be active in several of the research areas listed below:

  • Integrated active and passive photonic devices
  • Silicon technology and other silicon-based semiconductor technologies
  • MEMS and NEMS
  • Nanostructuring
  • Process technology
  • Electronic and photonic devices and circuits
  • Heterointegration
  • "System-in-Package" and "System-in-Foil" technologies
  • Micro-integration of quantum components

We are searching for an individual who is distinguished by high-ranking scientific publications or patents with international visibility and has leadership experience, preferably in an industrial context. Furthermore, experience in the acquisition and management of large-scale national and/or international research and development projects is expected. Moreover, relevant experience in participating in and leading interdisciplinary, international collaborations of industrial and academic institutions is desirable. In addition to excellent research results, the ongoing strategic direction of IMS CHIPS with sustainable and economically successful topics is also a central task of the advertised position. Finally, intensive cooperation with small and medium-sized enterprises in Baden-Württemberg is expected.

Successful candidates are expected to offer courses, also in English, in the above-mentioned research areas for the Master's programs of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology as well as for other programs of the university according to the reduced teaching load of a professorship in the Jülich model. Moreover, successful candidates are encouraged to participate in interdisciplinary research projects (e.g. Cluster4Future QSens, IQST, SCOPE and GRK2642) of the university. Finally, successful canidates are expected to foster joint research activities of IMS CHIPS with Faculty 5 as well as other faculties of the University of Stuttgart.
