The Department of Physics at the University of Arkansas invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in experimental condensed matter physics/materials science, to begin in the Fall of 2019. The successful candidate is expected to establish a vigorous, externally funded research program and demonstrate a commitment to teaching and mentoring at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Preference will be given to candidates whose research programs would benefit from and contribute to existing strengths within and outside the department, while also expanding our research profile in new directions. Opportunities abound for collaboration across the colleges of science and engineering, as well as within the Materials Science and Engineering graduate program.
Within the Department of Physics, the condensed matter/nanophysics group comprises eight experimental and five theoretical faculty members with particular strengths in ferroelectrics/multiferroics, two-dimensional materials, and quantum materials and devices. Additionally, materials science research at Arkansas emphasizes novel materials for electronics and photonics. We especially encourage applications from candidates with expertise in the growth (by epitaxy: MBE, CVD, PLD, etc.) and/or characterization (by ARPES, STM, TEM, scattering, optical methods, etc.) of one or more of these classes of materials.
