The Department of Natural Sciences at the University of Michigan-Dearborn invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in physics beginning September 2020. Preference will be given to applicants whose research specialty is in the area of experimental biomedical or medical physics. Tenure-track faculty members are expected to maintain an active research program that meaningfully engages undergraduate students and leads to peer-reviewed publications. Start-up funding and a research laboratory in our newly renovated Natural Science Building will be provided. Teaching duties include upper-level courses in Physics (Thermal and Statistical Physics and Advanced Laboratory being the most relevant) and participation in introductory Physics courses. Opportunities also exist for developing new courses within the applicant’s specialty.
The University of Michigan-Dearborn is primarily an undergraduate institution. The interdisciplinary Department of Natural Sciences has forty full-time faculty, including six in the Discipline of Physics and Astronomy. For more information about the Department and the Physics program, visit https://umdearborn.edu/casl/departments/natural-sciences.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in physics or a D.M.P. in medical physics and be committed to teaching from the full range of undergraduate physics courses. Successful applicants will demonstrate the capacity to develop an active research program that will involve undergraduate students and attract external funding. Postdoctoral research and/or teaching experience are also required.
A full curriculum vitae, including the names and contact information for three professional references.
A statement of teaching philosophy and experiences.
A description of research plans and achievements, including an explanation about how undergraduate students will be involved in the research program and plans to secure external funding.
Questions regarding the search can be directed to the Physics Search Chair, Dr. Nicholas Licata, firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of applications will begin October 15, 2019, and should be submitted no later than November 20, 2019 for full consideration.
