The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Experimental High Energy Physics. Applications from exceptional researchers at the associate professor rank will also be considered. The HEP group at Notre Dame consists of 7 experimental and 5 theoretical faculty, doing experimental research with CMS, DUNE, MINERνA, EMPHATIC, and NA61, along with instrumentation and computing R&D. Our theory group does research on low-energy, collider, and astrophysical tests of the Standard Model and its possible extensions. We seek faculty members committed to developing and sustaining an environment of inclusive excellence in research, teaching, and service. The successful candidate will be expected to complement our efforts either on the CMS experiment or in neutrino physics. Such a candidate must demonstrate the ability to develop a highly successful research program, establish leadership within the relevant experimental collaboration(s), attract independent research funding, teach effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, and engage with students from diverse backgrounds. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent advanced degree. Salary and rank will be commensurate with the successful applicant’s experience and research accomplishments. The expected start date is August 2024.
The Department of Physics at Notre Dame has 47 tenured and tenure-track faculty; another 25 research, teaching and concurrent faculty, as well as professors of the practice; more than 110 graduate students; and about 110 undergraduate physics majors. Additional information about the department and the College of Science can be found at http://physics.nd.edu and http://science.nd.edu respectively.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, list of publications, detailed research plans, and a statement of teaching and mentoring. Candidates must also arrange for at least three letters of recommendation. Review of completed applications will begin on September 1, 2023, with any application received prior to Nov. 4 being given full consideration.
The Department is committed to diversifying its faculty, and encourages applications from women and members of traditionally underrepresented groups.
