Three Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Physics
The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Stony Brook University http://www.physics.sunysb.edu/Physics/ seeks to hire three tenure-track assistant professors. It is expected that the appointments will begin in Fall 2007.
One appointment will be in theoretical nuclear or theoretical heavy ion physics. It is expected to be joint with the RIKEN BNL Research Center http://www.bnl.gov/riken for five years.
One appointment will be in experimental condensed matter physics focused on mesoscopic and nanoscale structures and devices, possibly benefiting from existing nanofabrication facilities.
One appointment will be in collider-based high energy physics focused on experiments to be carried out with the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider.
For all its searches the department is especially interested in recruiting highly qualified women and minority candidates at early stages in their careers and is sensitive to the issues of dual careers. Stony Brook faculty and students conduct experimental and theoretical research in a broad range of topics in physics and astronomy both in facilities on our campus and at laboratories around the world. Each successful candidate will have a Ph.D. degree in physics and relevant postdoctoral experience and publications. S/he will be expected to carry out an independent research program and to attract federal grant support for it. S/he will contribute to the teaching activities in the department at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The application process for all three positions will be conducted electronically. Interested candidates should go to the web page http://www.physics.sunysb.edu/Physics/AsstProfSearches/ and follow the link relevant to the desired one of the three positions listed above. Instructions are given there for uploading all application materials as pdf files to a secure web site. By 13 December 2006 each candidate should have submitted all application materials electronically, including the names, institutions, and email addresses for five referees. The candidate should also have arranged for each of these five referees to submit letters electronically. Each candidate will be notified by email when his/her application file is begun and again when it is complete. For further information or for alternative submission, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
