ASSISTANT PROFESSOR POSITION IN EXPERIMENTAL CONDENSED MATTER PHYSICS UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE
The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Tennessee Knoxville invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor in the field of Experimental Condensed Matter Physics (CMP). Applicants with research experience in all areas of Experimental CMP are strongly encouraged to apply. Some of the areas that the CMP group seeks to expand include, but are not necessarily limited to, device physics based on topological quantum matter, with applications in quantum information, quantum computing, and other emerging areas, and physics applied to technological developments (e.g. information storage devices, nanoscale electronics, plasmonics, ultrafast opto-electronics). In general, candidates who can synergistically expand the research portfolio of the CMP group in applied materials physics, quantum materials and devices will be strongly considered. We respect, understand, and value differences that embody principles of diversity, and inclusion. We hold deep commitment towards developing and promoting a culturally inclusive community. We strongly encourage applications from members of groups that are underrepresented in science and technology. Candidates should have a PhD in Physics or another field closely related to Physics. The candidate is expected to have a strong research record in Experimental CMP and is expected to develop a first-class, externally funded research program, to provide state-of-the-art training for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, and to contribute to the teaching mission of the department at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is Tennessee’s flagship research institution, a campus of choice for outstanding undergraduates, and a premier graduate institution. It benefits greatly from close proximity to unique research facilities at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The campus is located in one of the most beautiful areas of the country with easy access to miles of inland waterways, pristine state and national parks, diverse cultural opportunities, and a unique blend of convenient urban and rural living settings. The University and the Department of Physics and Astronomy welcomes and honors people of all races, creeds, cultures, and sexual orientations, and values intellectual curiosity, pursuit of knowledge, and academic freedom and integrity. The Knoxville campus of the University of Tennessee encourages candidates who have the ability to contribute in meaningful ways to the diversity and intercultural goals of the University. Applicants should send a CV, list of publications, a description of research and teaching experience, and of the proposed research program, and also arrange for at least three letters of reference to be submitted separately. All application materials should be submitted via: apply.interfolio.com/53925. Only electronic applications will be considered, and acceptable file formats are .pdf or .doc. This appointment is expected to begin August 1, 2019. Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2018 and continue until the position is filled.
The University of Tennessee is an EEO/AA/Title VI/Title IX/Section 504/ADA/ADEA institution in the provision of its education and employment programs and services.
