The Physics Department at Temple University anticipates an opening for a tenure-track or tenured faculty appointment, to begin July 1, 2020, subject to administrative approval and budgetary constraints. Candidates must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field, have demonstrated the ability to perform excellent research, and show promise for high-quality physics teaching. Our Department has active and well funded groups in experimental, computational, and theoretical AMO, condensed matter, and nuclear physics. Candidates in these and other subfields of physics are welcome to apply, especially those who can diversify our research and/or attract students at the undergraduate, master's, or doctoral level.
To apply please submit a curriculum vitae, publication list, research plan including an estimate of necessary startup resources, statement of teaching philosophy, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation.
Screening of applications will begin December 1, 2019, and continue until the position is filled. Temple University is an equal opportunity, equal access, affirmative action employer committed to achieving a diverse community (AA, EOE, m/f/d/v).
About Temple University
Temple University is a large state-related university located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. The University has a combined enrollment, both undergraduate and graduate, of nearly 39,000 students. While maintaining a definite urban flavor, the main campus with its tree-lined malls, landscaped gardens and grassy plazas is aesthetically appealing. The Physics Department is housed in the new state-of-the-art Science Education and Research Center building, which contains lecture halls, classrooms, teaching labs, computer labs, faculty and graduate student offices, the Temple Materials Institute instrumentation facilities, and extensive research laboratory facilities. The principal areas of current research are theoretical and experimental nuclear and particle physics, theoretical and experimental condensed matter and materials physics, theoretical and experimental atomic, molecular and optical physics, and computational physics. Much of this research is conducted locally using excellent facilities within the department and the university. In addition, several research groups use outside facilities, for example, at Brookhaven National Laboratory, Jefferson Lab, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
