Tenure-track Assistant Professor-Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics
The Minnesota Institute of Astrophysics (MIfA) within the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Minnesota invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Astrophysics, to begin August 2023. Applicants in any area of observational, experimental, theoretical, and computational astrophysics are welcome to apply. The intended rank is Assistant Professor, but applications from exceptional candidates at a more senior level will also be considered. MIfA faculty have a broad range of research interests that include: solar and planetary physics, stellar astrophysics, extragalactic astronomy, gravitational wave detection, dark matter particle searches, and cosmology. Further details may be found at https://cse.umn.edu/mifa. The successful candidate will have access to our facilities which include a share of the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT), and access to the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute. A Ph.D. in astrophysics or a closely related field is required.
Applicants must apply by November 4, 2022, online through the Interfolio website at http://apply.interfolio.com/113535
Faculty Position in Experimental Particle Physics
The School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, invites applications for a tenure-track position in the area of Experimental Particle Physics at the cosmic or intensity frontier. The appointment is expected to be at the Assistant Professor level. Applications from exceptional candidates at a more senior level will also be considered. The University of Minnesota has a strong and well-supported experimental particle physics program including leading efforts on CMS, CDMS, Mu2e, LDMX, and the Fermilab neutrino experiments. For this position, we seek candidates who would strengthen or complement our efforts in the cosmic frontier, the intensity frontier, or rare and precision measurements. Candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D. in physics, astrophysics, or other related fields and should have demonstrated the potential to conduct a vigorous and significant research program as evidenced by their publication record and supporting letters from recognized leaders in the field. The ability to teach physics effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels is required. The candidate should be dedicated to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment, and should be committed to working well with others.
Applications must be submitted by December 1, 2022, online through the Interfolio system: https://apply.interfolio.com/113982 All materials including letters of reference must be received by deadline to ensure full consideration, although applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.
Physics Teaching Faculty Professor
The School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, invites applications for a teaching faculty position (open rank). This contract faculty position will have primary responsibility for all advanced teaching laboratories. These include the sophomore level Modern Physics Laboratory (MPL) as well as the Methods of Experimental Physics (MXP) I and II courses. MPL introduces students to data analysis techniques as well as the communication of scientific results through laboratory experiments in atomic, solid state, or nuclear physics. The MXP courses are a featured component of the undergraduate physics program at UMN. Candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D. in physics or a related field, and possess at least three years of experience in an experimental physics laboratory. Experience can include graduate work. The candidate should also have experience troubleshooting and maintaining scientific equipment, and have excellent written and verbal communication skills. The successful candidate will be expected to 1) have a strong commitment to quality undergraduate physics education; 2) manage the operations of the advanced teaching laboratories; 3) maintain an outstanding record of educational and professional leadership; 4) engage in department, school, and/or university level service activities appropriate to the position; and 5) be dedicated to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment, as well as committed to working well with others.
Applications, including all materials and letters of reference, must be received by September 30, 2022 for full consideration, although applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.
