Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Quantum Materials and Information Science at University of Denver
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. A bachelor’s degree in Physics and Ph.D. in Physics or a related field is required. We are especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute to diversity, equity and inclusion through their teaching, research, and service. 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. More information about the department can be found at https://physics.du.edu.
Applications for this position must be submitted through https://jobs.du.edu and should include a cover letter, CV, statements of teaching philosophy and research plans, one-page statement of how the applicant can contribute to DU’s values, practices, and actions regarding diversity, equity and inclusivity, 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.
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. Average teaching load for junior and research-active faculty is one course per quarter. Instructors are required to independently develop new courses and to participate in undergraduate and graduate curriculum development. Assistant Professors are required to develop and independent research program and attract significant extramural funding. Other duties involve service commitments to the department, college, university, and professional community.
