The Physics Department at the University of Arizona invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor level with a focus on experimental quantum materials and devices. We encourage applications from researchers whose work will complement and strengthen existing areas of research at the University of Arizona including, but not limited to, two-dimensional materials, magnetic materials, superconductors, topological insulators, and other correlated systems. Research in the synthesis, processing, characterization, spectroscopy and/or applications of quantum materials are areas of particular interest. The University of Arizona ranks 3rd among public institutions in annual research expenditures in physical sciences. The successful applicant will benefit from the strong ties that exist between the Departments of Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering and the College of Optical Sciences and the State of Arizona’s Technology and Research Initiative Fund.
The required job duties include developing an excellent research program, teaching of undergraduate and graduate students and service activities. Successful faculty candidates will demonstrate potential for teaching excellence and the highest levels of scholarship and professional activity in their research area. Considering the University’s recent designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution, we especially welcome candidates who can contribute to programs that increase the access and success of underrepresented students. Candidates who will advance diversity, equity, and inclusion through their teaching, research, and service are encouraged.
This position is expected to start in the Fall of 2019. Review of applications will begin on December 3, 2018. To apply please submit a cover letter, full CV with list of publications, a statement of research and teaching interests, and the contact information of three references. For further questions about the position, contact Professor Brian LeRoy, search committee chair, email@example.com.
At the University of Arizona, we value our inclusive climate because we know that diversity in experiences and perspectives is vital to advancing innovation, critical thinking, solving complex problems, and creating an inclusive academic community. As an Hispanic-serving institution, we translate these values into action by seeking individuals who have experience and expertise working with diverse students, colleagues, and constituencies. Because we seek a workforce with a wide range of perspectives and experiences, we provide equal employment opportunities to applicants and employees without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, protected veteran status, or disability. As an Employer of National Service, we also welcome alumni of AmeriCorps, Peace Corps, and other national service programs and others who will help us advance our Inclusive Excellence initiative aimed at creating a university that values student, staff and faculty engagement in addressing issues of diversity and inclusiveness.
