Requisition Number: 0808573
Position Summary: The successful candidate is expected to develop a high quality, externally funded research program in theoretical elementary particle physics. 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 Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, invites applications for a tenure-track position in theoretical elementary particle physics at the rank of assistant professor. The appointment will begin August 2014. The current activities of the high energy theory group in the Department cover aspects of black hole physics, quantum gravity, dark energy, physics beyond the Standard Model, high energy collider physics, particle cosmology and astrophysics, and non-commutative geometry. Expected research areas of the successful candidate may include any of a variety of topics in theoretical elementary particle physics such as physics beyond the Standard Model, applications of particle physics to cosmology and particle astrophysics, quantum gravity, and string theory. The new faculty member would benefit from interaction with the existing experimental groups in the Department: high energy physics at the Large Hadron Collider (CMS), neutrino physics (Double Chooz, EXO, KamLAND, MiniBooNE, LBNE), dark matter search (LZ), and astroparticle physics (IceCube, HAWC). More information about the department can be found on the departmental website, physics.ua.edu. The minimum qualifications for this position are a Ph.D. or equivalent, postdoctoral experience and scholarly publications. 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. To apply, go to facultyjobs.ua.edu and complete the online application. Attach a letter of application, curriculum vitae with publication list, a summary of research plans, and a statement of teaching philosophy, as well as contact information for at least 3 references (names, telephone numbers, email and postal addresses). Arrange for letters from the references to be sent to the Chair, Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics Search Committee, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Box 870324, The University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL 35487 or sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. For additional information, contact the search committee chair, Dr. Nobuchika Okada, at email@example.com or +1 (205) 348-2837.
