The Physics Department at the University of Rhode Island (URI) invites applications for a full-time academic year tenure-track position of an Assistant Professor of Physics beginning in the fall of 2020, specifically for a theorist with expertise in the general area of nanophysics.
Considerations will be given to applicants with expertise in the broad area of nanophysics including but not limited to nanostructures, quantum dots, nanofluidics, nanorobotics, nanosensors, and quantum computing. Complementing contact points with research programs in the Physics Department (biological physics, medical physics, surface and thin film physics, ultrafast spectroscopy, nonlinear optics, statistical physics) or at URI more generally will be a factor in the selection process.
The Physics Department is in the process of developing, with support by a committed partner from industry, an MS degree in Applied Quantum Technology. Demonstrated expertise that naturally aligns with this initiative is a plus.
The successful candidate will teach undergraduate and graduate physics courses, advise undergraduate and graduate students in the research component toward BS, MS, and PhD degrees, and be active in service at the levels of Department, College, and University.
The position comes with funds to support a postdoc for the second year of appointment to help jump start a strong and externally funded research program.
