The Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Toledo invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in experimental physics, commencing August, 2018. We are seeking someone with a strong track record of research accomplishment broadly within but not limited to condensed matter physics; materials physics; optics/photonics; or chemical physics. Candidates with research interests in applied physics, including device physics, biophysics and soft condensed matter, and surfaces and interfaces are of particular interest, but those with strong backgrounds in other areas are also welcome to apply. A PhD in physics or a closely related field is required, and postdoctoral or equivalent experience is strongly preferred. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an active, independent, externally-funded research program. A history of independent external funding support would be valuable. Excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level is expected, and candidates should plan to involve both graduate and undergraduate students in their research program.
Our department consists of 21 faculty with approximately 60 graduate students, 5 post-doctoral researchers, and 6 research faculty members. The department is home to the Ohio Wright Center for Photovoltaics Innovation and Commercialization (PVIC). Current research expertise in the department includes theoretical and experimental activities in photovoltaics, fundamental behavior of materials, advanced optical instrumentation development, atomic-molecular-optical (AMO) physics, thin film growth and applications, biophysics, astronomy/astrophysics, and opto-electronic device physics.
Complete applications should be submitted to http://jobs.utoledo.edu to be considered. The application should include: (i) a cover letter, (ii) curriculum vitae, (iii) a research plan (3 pages maximum), and (iv) a teaching statement (2 pages maximum). Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent by the deadline to email@example.com. For full consideration, completed applications including letters should be received by March 05, 2018.
UT is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer.
