She/he is expected to build synergies with the Department of Physics in Fribourg and with the Paul Scherer Institute (PSI) and its various large-scale research facilities, in particular the Swiss Free Electron Laser. The candidate is expected to develop a vigorous, internationally recognized research program that is supported by a significant amount of external funding, and to lead the research activities of a group of graduate students/postgraduate researchers.
The future appointee is expected to participate in the teaching of theoretical physics courses in Fribourg (50% teaching load). The candidate should be able to teach in English as well as, at the Bachelor level, in one or both of the two official languages of the University, French or German (after an appropriate learning period, if necessary).
