The Department of Physics, Colorado State University, seeks to hire at least one tenure-track faculty member at the rank of Assistant Professor in theoretical high-energy physics. Exceptional candidates will be considered for positions with a more senior rank. Candidates whose research complements the CSU program in experimental high-energy and particle astrophysics (HEPPA) are strongly encouraged to apply. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in physics or an equivalent degree and have a documented potential for outstanding teaching, scholarship, and research. Postdoctoral and/or other substantial experience beyond the Ph.D. is expected.
Colorado State University is an EO/EA/AA employer and will conduct background checks on all final candidates.
Complete applications consist of a cover letter, detailed CV, descriptions of research plans and teaching interests, and three letters of reference. Your references will be contacted immediately upon submission of application and will receive an email with a link to submit their letter. Applications must be submitted online. Applications completed by November 13, 2019 will receive full consideration, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
About Colorado State University
The Department of Physics is comprised of 21 faculty members with research programs in atomic, molecular, and optical physics; condensed matter physics; and HEPPA. Members of the CSU HEPPA research group work on several forefront experiments: the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), T2K, NOvA, the Fermilab Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program, MicroBooNE, DRIFT, EXO-200 and nEXO. Group members study neutrino flavor oscillations and neutrino interactions, search for evidence of sterile neutrinos, dark matter and neutrinoless double beta decay, and utilize high-performance computing for HEP applications (SciDAC4). The HEPPA program has been designated a Colorado State University Program of Research and Scholarly Excellence.
