The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Mississippi invites applications for a tenure-track position in experimental high energy physics at the rank of assistant professor starting Fall 2019. The HEP group at Mississippi currently has strong research efforts on Belle-II, Muon g–2, Muon Collider R&D and flavor, and BSM phenomenology. The emphasis of this position is to collaborate with the group on developing an externally funded research program in neutrino physics. Opportunity for affiliation with the newly-formed Center for Multi-messenger Astrophysics at the University of Mississippi is also available. We are looking for candidates who will develop a research program capable of supporting and leading graduate students to Ph.D. degrees. A competitive startup package is available. A Ph.D. in Physics and at least one year postdoctoral experience is required. Faculty members are expected to contribute to the teaching and service activities of the Department and the University.
Interested candidates should apply online at careers.olemiss.edu. A CV is expected to be attached directly to your online application. Additionally, three letters of recommendation, a statement of teaching philosophy, and a detailed proposal for developing their research program should be sent directly to: Search Committee Chair, Department of Physics and Astronomy, The University of Mississippi, P.O. Box 1848, University, MS 38677, or emailed to email@example.com. Recommendation letters should be on institutional letterhead, signed, and should address the candidate’s qualifications and assess the quality of the proposed research plan. Consideration of applications will begin on February 1, 2019 but applications will be accepted until an adequate applicant pool is established, or until the position is filled.
Applications from underrepresented groups in physics are strongly encouraged. The department is committed to increasing diversity in the field.
