The Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Alabama invites applications for a tenure-track assistant Professor position, to start August 2020, in the field of direct dark matter detection. Existing faculty in the department have an ongoing research program within the LZ experiment, and the new position is intended to further expand this LZ program.
Related research activities in the department include experimental high-energy collider physics, neutrinoless double beta decay and magnetic monopoles, as well as research programs in experimental astroparticle physics and theoretical high-energy physics. More information about the department can be found on the department's website www.physics.ua.edu.
The minimum qualifications for this position are a PH.D. or equivalent, postdoctoral experience, and a record of scholarly publications commensurate with experience. Candidates for this position are expected to have an outstanding research record and exhibit potential for effective teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The successful candidate is expected to develop a high quality, externally funded research program, as well as teach and mentor at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
We will begin reviewing applications on December 1st, 2019 and the review process will continue until the position is filled. Applications should consist of a curriculum vitae, including descriptions of the applicant's accomplishments, research interests and teaching philosophy, and a list of publications with citation counts. Applicants should also arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be sent electronically to Prof. Ion Stancu at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail to prof. Ion Stancu, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Box 870324, Tuscaloosa, AL. 35487.
