[20100731] Tenure-track Professorship (W2): Structural States of Geomaterials at Extreme Conditions

The Faculty of Geosciences at Ludwig Maximilians Universität München is seeking an experienced scientist who applies atomic resolution techniques (experimental and/or theoretical) to study geomaterials at extreme conditions (official announcement at http://www.kristallographie.geowissenschaften.uni-muenchen.de/index.html). The candidate should take advantage of our local scientific infrastructure including the FRM-II neutron source and the Leibniz Computing Centre. Teaching commitments emphasize atomic and nano-scale geomaterial science at the Bachelors and graduate level within the Crystallography section.

Candidates should possess a doctoral degree and have teaching/mentoring experience. The appointment is for six years and can become permanent pending a positive evaluation beginning 3 years after the initial appointment. A permanent appointment can be granted at the start for outstanding applicants. Candidates should be younger than 53 at the time of appointment, although exceptions can be made. Females are especially encouraged to apply. The university supports dual career couples. Applications should be sent to the Dean of the Faculty of Geosciences, Luisenstraße 37, D-80333 Munich, Germany, no later than 31 July 2010.
