Information on the competition

Rector of the Warsaw University of Technology announces a competition for the position of ASSISTANT PROFESSOR in the following employee group research and teaching field of natural science discipline physical science in the Division of Structural Research in the Faculty of Physics at the Warsaw University of Technology, which shall be the primary place of employment as defined by the Act of 20 July 2018 - Law on Higher Education and Science hereinafter referred to as ‘the Law’.

The position requires activity in both research and teaching.

The main responsibilities of the candidate in research will be to study 2D materials and their heterostructures. The research will focus on three main subjects: (i) devices fabrication, (ii) study of the electronic properties of the materials (iii) advanced characterization of the active materials in devices using various techniques. The formal part of the job includes realizing research projects, funding acquisition, and documentation of the results in the form of scientific papers, patents, and conference presentations.

The main responsibilities of the candidate in teaching will be: (i) to give lectures, tutorials, and laboratories for physics and engineering students in the topic of general physics and solid-state physics, (ii) propose and supervise diploma theses of undergraduate and graduate students.

The aim of the research associated with the job will be to study the electronic properties of the two-dimensional materials in nanodevices and the effects related to the surface of these materials. The responsibilities include the sample preparation with devices fabrication using electron beam lithography. The materials should also be analysed using several techniques, such as Raman spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, scanning electron microscopy or photoluminescence. Besides scientific research, the responsibilities include supervising diploma theses, as well as giving lectures, tutorials, and laboratories for students.

The candidate should have documented scientific achievements and be a PI in at least one research project. Experience in teaching is also required.

Candidates are required:

1)  to have completed higher education with a master’s degree or equivalent

2)  to have a PhD degree

3)  to have a very good command of English (another foreign language)

4)  to have a scientific profile related to the specialization of the Division

5)  laboratory experience in the production of devices based on low-dimensional materials using electron beam lithography and electrical measurements of nanodevices

6)  knowledge of issues related to (i) solid state physics (ii) two-dimensional materials and methods of their characterization (iii) electronic properties of low-dimensional materials (iv) the use of two-dimensional materials and their heterostructures;

7)  ability to analyze large sets of experimental data using scripts (Python programming language preferred);

8)  experience in managing and implementing research projects of at least national scope (eg NCN, NCBR)

9)  teaching experience in Polish and English language;


The person applying for the post should satisfy the requirements set forth in the Law on Higher Education and Science and in § 118-121 of the Warsaw University of Technology Statute.


Candidates shall submit the following documents:

1)     a letter of application to the Vice-Rector for General Affairs

2)     a CV

3)     Candidate’s Personal Information form

4)     copy of the diploma of higher education confirming the obtained master’s degree or an

equivalent degree

5)     a certified copy of the PhD diploma

6)     a list of research, teaching and organizational output and achievements

7)     other documents certifying additional qualifications

8)     acknowledgement of WUT as a primary place of employment, as defined in the Act of

Law on Higher Education and Science

9)     a declaration on:

a)       the full capacity to perform acts in law

b)       enjoying full civil rights

c)       not being convicted by a valid sentence for an intentional crime or an intentional tax offence

d)       no disciplinary penalty as defined in Article 276 section 1
items 7 and 8 of the Law on Higher Education and Science of 20 July 2018 being imposed on them

e)       fulfilling the condition specified in Article 209 section10 items 2 or 3 of the Law – if applicable


The aforementioned documents shall be submitted from the day of competition announcement November 17, 2022  to December 17, 2022 at the Faculty of Physics WUT to the Dean of the Faculty, Koszykowa 75, room 129.

The competition shall be adjudicated until January 31, 2023.


The Warsaw University of Technology shall reserve the right not to conclude the competition without selecting the candidate and stating the reason. 

Not informing the candidate about the competition results is equivalent to rejecting their application. 

Winning the competition shall not guarantee employment.
