EXPERIMENTAL FACULTY POSITION IN ULTRAFAST SCIENCES
AND CONDENSED MATTER PHYSICS
The Department of Physics & Astronomy invites applications from outstanding candidates for a tenure-system Assistant Professor position at Michigan State University in the area of experimental ultrafast sciences. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: physics of collective excitations and emergent quantum phenomena in solids, including low-dimensional systems such as 2D materials; electron and spin quantum dynamics and control; light-induced phase transitions, and non-perturbative light-matter coupling. In the area of experimental ultrafast sciences, we are looking for candidates with demonstrated excellence in applying and developing cutting-edge instrumentation to solve forefront scientific problems on ultrafast time scales. Emphasis will be given to candidates with a strong background in probing time-dependent electronic structures and properties, and those combining electronic spectroscopy with other complementary techniques. Suitable candidates may have a partial appointment in the Department of Chemistry. This position is listed on the MSU Applicant Page (https://jobs.msu.edu), postings #2108. Applications should be uploaded to MSU’s online job application site, https://jobs.msu.edu, and should include (1) a cover letter, (2) CV, (3) statement of research plans, (4) a one-page teaching statement, all included in a SINGLE PDF file, and have ready the names and email addresses of three references. The letters of recommendation should be submitted electronically by the recommenders through this application system. The selection process will begin on December 5th, 2016, and review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
