Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Phy­sics, Insti­tute of Nuclear and Par­ti­cle Phy­sics

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

2 Rese­arch Asso­cia­tes / PhD Stu­dents

(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)

The posi­ti­ons are star­ting on Janu­ary 1, 2022. The posi­ti­ons ent­ail 50% of the full­time wee­kly hours in the first year and 67% in the fol­lo­wing years. The posi­ti­ons are initi­ally limi­ted until June 30, 2024. They shall be exten­ded to 3 years, sub­ject to the avai­la­bi­lity of resour­ces. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - WissZeitVG). The posi­ti­ons offer the chance to obtain fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion (e.g. PhD).
The posi­ti­ons will be in the ATLAS rese­arch group led by Prof. Dr. Arno Stra­ess­ner and Dr. Frank Sie­gert. The envi­sa­ged rese­arch pro­gramme is part of the Ger­man-wide BMBF rese­arch net­work ErUM-FSP ATLAS focu­sing on par­ti­cle phy­sics at hig­hest ener­gies with the ATLAS expe­ri­ment at the LHC. The ATLAS Dres­den group has a long-term expe­ri­ence in phy­sics ana­ly­sis of pro­ton-pro­ton col­li­si­ons, Stan­dard Model phy­sics, par­ti­cle sear­ches, detec­tor deve­lop­ment for the ATLAS liquid-argon calo­ri­me­ters, and app­li­ca­tion of machine lear­ning and advan­ced sta­tis­ti­cal methods in data ana­ly­sis.

Working field:

  • ATLAS phy­sics ana­ly­sis in one of the two areas: search for Higgs bosons bey­ond the Stan­dard Model with tau lep­tons in the final state; Stan­dard Model mea­su­rements of vec­tor boson scat­te­ring and/or pho­ton final sta­tes;
  • par­ti­ci­pa­tion in ATLAS ope­ra­tion and data taking with the ATLAS liquid-argon calo­ri­me­ter or in the activi­ties of the ATLAS phy­sics model­ling group or of the tau working group;
  • regu­lar visits to CERN, inclu­ding a lon­ger rese­arch period, will be pos­si­ble.


  • very good uni­ver­sity degree (Mas­ter's or equi­va­lent) with a spe­cia­li­za­tion in the area of par­ti­cle phy­sics;
  • rese­arch expe­ri­ence rela­ted to LHC mea­su­rements or equi­va­lent exper­tise;
  • high moti­va­tion to join an ana­ly­sis in the ATLAS expe­ri­ment and to par­ti­ci­pate in ATLAS ope­ra­tion.
