Professor or Associate Professor in Physics
The Niels Bohr Institute announces the availability of a faculty position in physics. The position can be filled at the level of associate professor with tenure or professor with tenure depending on qualifications of the candidate.
- The candidate should have a research in profile in either computational methods in physics or in quantum information theory.
- Candidates within computational physics preferably have a research profile in one or more of the following areas, advanced statistical learning, algorithm development, numerical methods, or simulation-based inference.
- Candidates within quantum information theory preferably have experience with application and implementation of quantum information for quantum technology, quantum communication or quantum algorithms.
Relevant research activities at the Niels Bohr Institute can be found within Astrophysics (including Planetary Sciences and Cosmology); Biophysics and Biocomplexity; Condensed Matter and Quantum Physics, Geophysics (including Ice, Climate, and Earth Sciences); High Energy and Astro-particle Physics and in the Center for Quantum Devices (qdev.dk); quantum optics theory group (tqo.dk), the Quantum Photonics Center (hy-q.nbi.ku.dk), and the Quantum Optics Center (quantop.nbi.ku.dk). Related activities can further be found in the Center for the Mathematics of Quantum Theory (qmath.ku.dk/).
The successful candidate must be an outstanding scientist who has already had significant international impact on research and who has demonstrated: (1) the talent and vision to define an independent research program, (2) the scientific maturity to establish an independent research group, and (3) the ability to attract significant external funding in open competition at national and international levels. The successful candidate is expected to collaborate both internationally and within University of Copenhagen on research questions of broad-scale relevance and should preferably have experience from leading an internationally recognized research program.
The deadline for applications is June 23, 2021, 23:59 GMT +2.

Niels Bohr Institute as a workplace
The Niels Bohr Institute has a strong cultural heritage accumulated from our 100 years of internationally high level of research and teaching. The initiator of our Department, Niels Bohr, had an international mindset about scientific collaboration as well as a desire for an open and open-minded atmosphere for all. 100 years later, we still have an informal and open international research environment that strives to promote research, teaching and innovation at the highest level with respect and helpfulness towards students, colleagues and all other stakeholders.
Our students, staff and partners are the source of our success and at the same time our best ambassadors. As a Department, we want to create an inspiring and challenging work environment with a good balance between work and private life. We want the Niels Bohr Institute to be a place where people are proud of and happy to work, study and collaborate with.
