Assistant Professor Tenure-track Position - Experimental Condensed Matter/Quantum Science
The Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Denver (DU) invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position to begin in September of 2023. We seek candidates with research interests in experimental condensed matter physics whose research and teaching will support an initiative in Quantum Materials and Information Science, which launched with one faculty member already hired in 2022. All areas broadly related to quantum materials and information sciences will be considered, with potential for collaboration with existing research areas on campus and in the surrounding areas a particular plus. The successful candidate will possess enthusiasm for teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses, and demonstrate promise of developing an independent extramurally funded research program that involves both Ph.D. and undergraduate students. Though we intend to focus on experimental candidates, a theoretical or computational candidate with exceptionally strong match to the position and the department may be considered.
Teaching Assistant Professor Position
The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Denver invites applications for a non-tenure track Teaching Assistant Professor position beginning in September 2023. The position is at the Teaching Assistant Professor level, but exceptional candidates with a proven track record in teaching at the college/university level may be considered for a Teaching Associate Professor appointment.
Applications for both positions must be submitted through https://jobs.du.edu and should include a cover letter, CV, statements of teaching philosophy and research plans (for the tenure-track position only), one-page diversity statement, and names and contact information for at least three references. Applications completed before January 1, 2023 will be assured full consideration, but the selection process will continue until the position is filled. More information about the department can be found at https://physics.du.edu.
The University of Denver is committed to enhancing the diversity of its faculty and staff. We are an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment regardless of age, race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or military/veteran status.
The University of Denver is the oldest independent university in the Rocky Mountain region, with approximately 12,000 students in undergraduate and graduate programs. DU is classified as a Doctoral/Research University with high research activity. The Department of Physics and Astronomy underwent a strong expansion with eight tenure-track and two teaching professor positions filled since 2006. Our diverse and dynamic faculty of 12 includes four women and come from seven different countries. We provide an attentive, hands-on research and learning community for undergraduate and graduate students up through the PhD level. The program is recognized by the APS among US PhD-granting departments for our high percentage of female graduates: placing second nationally at the undergraduate level and third at the graduate level (APS data for the period 2011-2013). The department has major research thrusts in stellar astronomy/astrophysics, biophysics, and condensed matter/materials physics. Major state-of-the-art instrumentation is available both in the department and through collaborations with nearby national institutes in the region (NIST and NREL). Also, the University of Denver maintains... our own Linux cluster for in-house high-performance computational needs. More information about the department can be found at https://physics.du.edu.
