    About The Department of Physics, Chemistry and Pharmacy 

    The department has approximately 160 employees including 37 permanent researchers, 70 postdocs and PhD students, and 35 technical administrative staff. To support experimental work the department has both a mechanical and electronics workshop. The department hosts four programmes – physics, chemistry, pharmacy and pharmaceutical chemistry with a total student population of just over 500. The research at the department is internationally competitive and the researchers secure DKK45 – 50 million per year from external foundations and stakeholders. Researchers at FKF collaborate with the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (IMADA) and the Faculty of Engineering.

    Based in Odense, the Faculty of Science offers a modern, inclusive, international and interdisciplinary working environment with state-of-the-art facilities as well as a strong tradition for collaboration across departments and faculties, with university colleges and high schools, municipalities, industries and museums in the region.

    Existing research areas

    The department has several strong research groups in the following two main areas of physics that also span collaborations with other departments : (1) biophysics and soft condensed matter (PhyLife) and (2) particle and astroparticle physics, classical and quantum gravity, and cosmology (CP3-Origins).

    • The scientists in PhyLife study the physical principles of biological phenomena and the behaviour of biological materials and cover a wide range of topics using experimental, theoretical and computational approaches. Active research areas include self-assembled complex systems such as biomembranes, polymers, liquid crystals, and minimal life as well as membrane proteins, bioimaging and image analysis, and statistical physics.
    • The international research environment at CP3-Origins includes researchers who focus on the formal development of fundamental quantum theories of nature and their phenomenology, key questions of cosmology, astrophysics and quantum and classical aspects of gravity. These include the origin of the Universe, inflation, the nature of dark energy and dark matter, black holes, gravitational waves, and involvement in the Event Horizon Telescope


    Appointment to the position will be in accordance with the salary agreement between the Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. Please check links for more information on salary and taxation.
