Faculty Position in the Department of Physics at Oklahoma State University
The Department of Physics at Oklahoma State University invites applications for a tenure track assistant professor position for an AMO/Photonics Theorist. The successful candidate should have a strong record of theoretical research in the area of atomic, molecular, or optical physics, with a preference for strong interactions with experimentalists. We particularly encourage applications from candidates who can form collaborations within the department’s AMO, condensed matter, or biological physics groups, all of which have significant photonics components, and with research groups across OSU. The successful candidate is expected to attract extramural research funding.
OSU is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty (currently 25% of the Physics Department faculty are from underrepresented groups). The Department of Physics welcomes applications from outstanding candidates, who, through their research, teaching, and/or service will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the Physics Department. A Ph.D. in Physics or an allied field is required as well as the promise of excellence in teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and the ability to mentor underrepresented students.
An appointment at the Assistant Professor level is expected with a start date of August 1, 2019. Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, brief statements of research plans and teaching plans, and a cover letter, and arrange for three letters of recommendation. All these are to be uploaded to Interfolio (apply.interfolio.com/55621). Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled.

About Oklahoma State University - Physics
Oklahoma State University’s main campus is located about 60 miles from both Oklahoma City and Tulsa in the city of Stillwater. OSU serves as a premier land-grant university with branch campuses in Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Okmulgee.
The university’s rich history began Christmas Eve 1890, when Territorial Governor George W. Steele signed legislation providing for the establishment of an agricultural and mechanical college and an agricultural experiment station in Payne County. The next day, Christmas, Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College began. There were no books, no tuition, no buildings or curriculum. Now, under the leadership of brilliant past presidents and the current university president, Burns Hargis, Oklahoma State University boasts more than 260,000 degrees conferred at one of the most beautiful and affordable universities in the nation.
