Professor of Physics - High Energy or Nuclear Physics
August 31, 2018
Faculty 4-Year College/University
Physics: Cosmology, Physics: High Energy, Physics: Nuclear
The Department of Physics at Lehigh University invites applications for a faculty position in High Energy or Nuclear Physics, broadly defined (including quantum field theory, high energy theory, string theory, theoretical cosmology, experimental medium or high-energy nuclear/particle physics). The search is for a tenure-track Assistant Professor, or for highly qualified candidates at the Associate or Full Professor level. The anticipated starting date is August 2019. Candidates should have a PhD in Physics, or equivalent.
This faculty search aims to strengthen the fundamental physics component of the Physics Department, which includes research programs in nuclear and particle physics, string theory, astrophysics, atomic and molecular physics, statistical physics, computational physics, condensed matter physics, nonlinear optics and photonics, biophysics and soft matter. Physics faculty are committed to research excellence, teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and service to the academic community.
All materials should be uploaded to http://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/11781. Applicants should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a complete list of publications, statements of research and teaching interests, and the names and affiliation of three references. Consideration of candidates will begin on Dec. 1, 2018.
Lehigh University is a private research university experiencing significant growth that ranks in the top 50 among national universities in the 2018 U.S. News & World Report ratings. It offers a distinct academic environment of undergraduate and graduate students from across the globe. It is located on a scenic campus in the Lehigh Valley of eastern Pennsylvania, a vibrant and historic community about one and one-half hours from New York City and Philadelphia and with a population of about 1 million residents. The Lehigh Valley is an attractive place to live and work with reasonable cost of living, easy commuting, good schools, and abundant cultural and outdoors activities.
Lehigh University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, and offers excellent benefits including domestic partner benefits. Lehigh is a recipient of an NSF ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Award for promoting the careers of women in academic sciences and engineering (see http://advance.cc.lehigh.edu). It provides a wide range of networking, mentoring and development opportunities for early-career faculty, and is a leader in promoting work-life balance (http://www.lehigh.edu/~inprv/faculty/worklifebalance.html). Lehigh is also a founding member of the Lehigh Valley Inter-Regional Networking & Connecting Consortium to assist highly qualified couples who face the dual career challenge.
