The University of Texas at Austin invites applications for multiple Tenure-track Assistant Professor positions (subject to the availability of funding) to enhance its research programs in the general area of quantum materials and quantum information science. The candidates will have a home department in Physics or Computer Science. This hiring initiative focuses on two areas: (1) fundamentals and applications of quantum information, algorithms, systems and architectures, and (2) quantum materials, devices, and quantum simulation. The positions offer excellent start-up funds, salary, and laboratory space in a dynamic and highly interactive research environment.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) and a demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching and research. Successful candidates are expected to pursue an active research program, to teach both graduate and undergraduate courses, and to supervise graduate students and postdoctoral researchers.
The University is committed to building a diverse faculty and we are interested in candidates who will contribute to the diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and service.
Please submit your application at apply.interfolio.com/79208 and include: a cover letter, a description of research accomplishments and current and future research plans (limited to 4 pages), a statement on teaching experience, goals, and philosophy, a Curriculum Vitae, and a list of publications. Candidates should indicate a preferred home department and are also required to request three letters of recommendation using the Interfolio website, which will email the referees with instructions to directly upload their letters of recommendation. Complete applications will be reviewed on an on-going basis beginning September 30, 2020.
About The University of Texas at Austin, College of Natural Sciences
The College of Natural Sciences is one of the largest colleges of science in the United States, with a community of more than 12,000 undergraduate and graduate students, 700 tenure and non-tenure track faculty members, and 1,200 staff.
Preparing Tomorrow's Leaders
The College of Natural Sciences is a major source of future scientists, doctors, mathematicians, technologists, educators and entrepreneurs, and has become quite popular with students. We now graduate about 1,800 every year, more than double the number from 2001. In large measure, this success stems from our commitment to developing new paradigms for educating math and science students of the 21st century, thus improving retention, diversity and graduation rates. We believe that: All students should be placed in a small academic community program; Students learn best through gaining hands-on experience and experience in leadership roles; Technology can transform teaching and learning; The college has been a pioneer in this area.
Commitment to Basic Science and Discovery
Research is the core of the College of Natural Sciences. The college is home to many of the top faculty and best graduate students in the world, ...and its undergraduates learn by engaging in cutting-edge research in laboratories across campus. Our scientists and student have access to world-class research facilities, and grants and contracts awarded to faculty amount to more than $110 million per year. Through research programs in the college, faculty and students are developing new technologies, ideas and solutions that change the world.
