Assistant Professor in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics at the Florida State University
The Department of Physics at the Florida State University (FSU) seeks to hire a full-time, nine-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics, with an anticipated starting date in August 2019. Highly qualified candidates with research interests and expertise in all areas of experimental condensed matter and materials physics are encouraged to apply. Competitive applications must demonstrate the potential for establishing a highly competitive research program in a collaborative environment, with substantial connections to the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL), the largest and highest-powered magnet lab in the world. A strong commitment to both graduate and undergraduate education in physics is also expected. The experimental condensed matter science programs within physics and at the NHMFL (nationalmaglab.org) cover a broad range of research activities that span the discipline, augmented by a strong condensed matter theory group. The physics department also has excellent programs in nuclear physics, particle physics, and astrophysics, with 44 tenured or tenure-track faculty and over 150 graduate students (physics.fsu.edu).
The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. degree in physics (or equivalent), and postdoctoral research experience is expected. Demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching and mentoring a diverse undergraduate and graduate student body, while establishing a well-recognized research program, is essential. The salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience, and includes a full benefits package. Modern laboratory space and competitive start-up funds will be provided.
Applications must be submitted as a single, self-contained and identifiable pdf document to firstname.lastname@example.org, and must include: (i) cover letter, (ii) curriculum vitae with full publication list, (iii) statement of research and proposed activities, (iv) statement of teaching philosophy, (v) the names and contact information for at least three references. To ensure full consideration, applications must be submitted by November 30th, 2018. For more information, please contact Prof. Stephen Hill (email@example.com).
