Technische Universität Berlin, Faculty II – Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Institute for Solid State Physics, and
Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (Heinrich-Hertz-Institut) jointly invite applications in a Reimbursement Model (Berliner Modell)
The appointment for the professorship is part of the cooperation of the Einstein Center Digital Future partners.
|II-440/16 (starting at the earliest possible / for a period of 3 years; an extension of 3 more years is
possible after successful evaluation / closing date for applications 13/10/16)
|The successful candidate will be a professor at the Institute for Solid State Physics, Faculty II – Mathematics
and Natural Science, Technische Universität Berlin and at the same time be the leader of an independent research
group at Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institut (HHI).
Technische Universität Berlin and the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunication, Heinrich-Hertz-Institute co-operate in
research and development in the field of ultra-fast opto-electronic semi-conductor devices and their applications.
Within the framework of this co-operation both partners want to strengthen the teaching and research in the field of Terahertz
sensors. The focus will be on the research and development of new devices and sensors in InGaAs/InP-materials
for the efficient generation and detection of Terahertz-radiation.
Candidates for the position are expected to participate adequately in the teaching for the degree courses of the Faculty II
– Mathematics and Natural Science. At the same time candidates will conduct be the leader of an independent research
group at Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institute (HHI).
Successful applicants must fulfill the requirements for appointment at the professor level in compliance

didactic qualifications, to be proven by teaching experience and visualized in a teaching portfolio (for further
information see TUB Website, quick as no. 144242).
Applicants should have adequate expertise and experience in at least one of the following research areas:
- Opto-electronic generation und detection of THz-radiation
- Micro-structuring in InP-materials
- Conception of integrated optical devices (laser, waveguides, modulators) for the use in THz-systems
- Radio-frequency engineering, design of antennae and waveguides
- Pulsed and cw-THz-metrology and their industrial application areas
Applicants should have shown academic expertise in the field of opto-electronic generation and detection of Terahertzwaves
and should be able to manage their own research group and organize scientific projects. The area of research
expertise should allow co-operations with adjoining research groups as well as participation in current and future collaborative
research activities. Experience in the acquisition of third-party funding from industry and public funding organizations
