Call for two open-topic Junior Research Group Leaders! (published April 2024)

The appointees are expected to establish independent research groups in modern fields of optics. While this is an open topic call, strong connections between the new junior research groups and the already existing groups in the Collaborative Research Center “NOA - Nonlinear Optics down to Atomic scales” (www.noa.uni-jena.de) and/or the research group for Nano & Quantum Optics (www.iap.unijena.de/nano-quantum-opticsExternal link) are explicitly desired. Depending on their eventual topical alignment, the
new junior research groups will be associated to the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy or the Faculty
of Chemistry and Earth Sciences. This call is focusing on strengthening diversity in science.

Besides the standard documents, applications should include a detailed description of the proposed research program indicating also the intended networking and the earliest start-ing date.

Note that the application deadline is June 16, 2024.
