Other Title Info: Condensed Matter Physics - Confined Systems
Requisition Number: 0808566
Position Summary: The successful candidate is expected to develop a high quality, externally funded research program in experimental or theoretical condensed matter physics with an emphasis on the physics of confined systems. Candidates are expected to have and maintain an outstanding research record, as well as teach and mentor effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Minimum Preferred Qualifications: Tenure-track Position in Condensed Matter Physics The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Alabama (Tuscaloosa) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Condensed Matter Physics (experimental or theoretical) with an emphasis on physics of confined systems. The appointment should begin 16 August 2014. The successful candidate is expected to collaborate with physics faculty in the highly successful interdisciplinary MINT Center (mint.ua.edu) and/or other faculty in Chemistry and Engineering. In particular, the successful candidate's research expertise is expected to complement existing experimental work on the optical properties of low dimensional systems. The new faculty member would benefit from the extensive existing infrastructure at MINT and the UA Central Analytical Facility (caf.ua.edu) for general-purpose material characterization. More information can be found on the departmental (physics.ua.edu) and MINT websites. The minimum qualifications for this position are a Ph.D. in Physics or a related field and an outstanding record of research accomplishments. Postdoctoral experience is desirable. Candidates for this position are expected to have an outstanding research record and exhibit potential for effective teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The successful candidate is expected to develop a high quality, externally funded research program, as well as teach and mentor at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
