Boston College is entering a new era in scientific research, with the recent creation of the Schiller Institute for Integrated Science and Society. This $300 million investment into the sciences will include the hiring of more than 20 new faculty and a new 150,000 square-foot science center, currently under construction. The Physics Department is a leader in this effort, and continues to expand its highly collaborative and interdisciplinary efforts across quantum materials and information, nanophotonics, plasmonics, materials science, nonlinear optics and biological physics. Beyond the 5 new hires since 2014, we are pleased to continue these investments by inviting applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position. Candidates with expertise in condensed matter, materials science, bio-materials interfaces, biosensing, quantum computing, quantum information or optics are strongly encouraged to apply. We are particularly interested in diverse candidates with collaborative research programs, be they theoretical, experimental, computational or a combination thereof. Exceptionally qualified candidates may be considered for appointment at a higher rank.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field, with a proven track record of scientific and professional accomplishment, as well as an ability to work effectively with diverse populations. Successful candidates will be expected to develop world-class research programs, demonstrate excellence in teaching, and contribute significantly to the educational and service activities of the department and University. Salary and startup packages will be internationally competitive and commensurate with qualifications, training and experience.
To apply, submit to https://apply.interfolio.com/66914 a detailed curriculum vitae, a research plan, a minimum of three letters of reference, a statement of teaching interests, and a separate statement that addresses past and/or potential contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Review of applications will begin November 1, 2019.
