Applications are invited for a permanent faculty position, at the rank of Full Professor, in the area of magnetism. The position is placed in the Division of Synchrotron Radiation Research, Department of Physics, Faculty of Science at Lund University, Lund, Sweden.
Lund University is the host of the national Swedish MAX IV Laboratory for synchrotron radiation (www.maxiv.lu.se) and the European Spallation Source, which is being built on the outskirts of Lund (www.europeanspallationsource.se). These two facilities, together with Lund University’s own materials science laboratories, will create a strong, globally unique environment for research on novel, correlated materials.
We are a leading research division with current research activities which include surface science, microscopy and characterisation of nanostructure and surface chemical processes (www.sljus.lu.se). The new professor will initiate new research on magnetism which can exploit the possibilities for neutron scattering/spectroscopy that the ESS will bring and which can take advantage of the possibilities for synchrotron radiation experiments at the MAX IV facility. Educational developments along these lines are also included in the duties.
A PhD and significant evidence of excellence in research in experimental magnetism and the potential for effective teaching are required. Responsibilities include the supervision of graduate students, as well as teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The effective date of appointment is negotiable.
The application review process will begin on September 15, 2016, and we anticipate a decision after interviews in late 2016. Lund University respects, appreciates and encourages diversity. We welcome applications from all qualified individuals including women, members of visible minorities, Aboriginal peoples and persons with disabilities. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply.
University employees are entitled to full Swedish social benefits, including full parental and medical leave, affordable child care and after-school programs. Lund has international schools up to and including high school level.
