Insights into the working life of Physicists

If your studies are coming to an end, you might well be in the process of asking yourself what to do next? How to proceed, which path to follow in life?
We invited several physicists to tell us their individual career path. They will share their most important experiences and pass on to you the wisdom they wish they’d had at the end of their studies, and ultimately explain how they ended up in the positions they hold today.
The lectures for the Wintersemester will be held in English on Tuesday afternoon at 6.00 pm and take place in KIP (INF 227).
We are currently working on the plan for next Semester. More talks will likely be added.

Schedule WS 2018/19



Dr. Jakob Kunz (IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH, Obersulm)
Dr. Kunz did his PhD at the Insitute of Environmental Physics at Heidelberg University in the Jähne Lab. There, he studied heat transfer processes at the air-water interface and was working on the development and improvement of camera based optical measurement systems. After half a year as a PostDoc in Heidelberg, he joined IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH.

The talk will be especially interesting for those who are interested in cameras and image processing.



A Postdoc from Heidelberg university about an academic career.


Dr. Jens Buchner, Dr. Sebastian Boblest, Dr. Andrej Junginger (ETAS GmbH – Bosch Group, Stuttgart)
Dr. Buchner studied Physics and received his PhD from Heidelberg University in environmental physics (Prof. Roth) in 2012. He started at ETAS GmbH in 2013 in the field of real-time simulation as a developer and team-leader.
Dr. Junginger studied Physics and received his PhD from the University of Stuttgart in the field of quantum reaction dynamics. Supported by the Humboldt foundation, he worked as a PostDoc at the Georgia Institute of Technology and lead a research group on time-dependent reaction dynamics at the University of Stuttgart, before he joined ETAS GmbH in 2017.
Dr. Boblest also studied Physics and received his PhD from Stuttgart University in the field of theoretical atomic physics. After being a PostDoc for 4 more years in Stuttgart, he started at ETAS GmbH beginning of 2018.
Currently all three work in the machine learning/artificial intelligence team at ETAS GmbH. ETAS GmbH is a mid-size company providing software tools and hardware for engineering embedded devices in the automotive domain. You will get an insight to the dynamically evolving field of machine learning in the automotive industry, focusing on deep learning (image-to-image translation with GANs and adversarial attacks) and learning of equations with genetic programming.
