Faculty Position in Quantum Physics Experiment University of Pittsburgh Department of Physics and Astronomy
The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Pittsburgh (http://www.physicsandastronomy.pitt.edu/) invites applications for a new faculty member in experimental quantum physics. This appointment, which is subject to budgetary approval, will be at the Assistant Professor level and will begin with the Fall Term of 2024, or thereafter.
While applications over a wide range of specialties are encouraged, the successful candidate will enhance or strategically complement ongoing efforts within the Department of Physics and Astronomy, as well as within the Pittsburgh Quantum Institute and Petersen Institute for Nanoscale Science and Engineering. There will be preference given to applications focusing on work in the following areas: quantum sensing; quantum control in novel physical systems; quantum communication; quantum simulators and emulators; materials for quantum information processing; atomic and molecular quantum systems; quantum nano- and optomechanics; and quantum electronic devices and systems. The position requires a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related area. All candidates should have the potential to teach effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels and to attract external funding for a creative, independent, and broad-based research program.
Candidates from groups traditionally underrepresented in physics are strongly encouraged to apply. One of the major strategic goals of the University of Pittsburgh is to embrace diversity and inclusion; therefore, candidates should be committed to a program of teaching and research which will involve and support a diverse student population.
Interested candidates can apply online at: www.join.pitt.edu. To ensure full consideration, complete applications should be received by December 31, 2023. However, applications will be accepted for the duration of the search. Candidates should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, publication list, a statement explaining their research accomplishments and future plans, a statement discussing their teaching experience, interests, and approaches, and a statement addressing their views and ideas about advancing the university’s goal of recruiting and supporting a diverse student population. Three letters of recommendation should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
