Boston College Physics
Experimental Condensed Matter
The Department of Physics at Boston College invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in experimental condensed matter. All areas of condensed matter/materials physics will be considered, with particular interest in optics/photonics, energy and quantum matter. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field, with a proven track record of scientific and professional accomplishment. Boston College Physics is undergoing a dynamic expansion. It is projected that up to five new faculty will be hired in the coming years, all in condensed matter/materials physics. We particularly seek future faculty members interested in broad collaborations, with a vision for growth of the department and the integrated and applied sciences overlapping with cognate disciplines. Successful candidates will be expected to develop world-class research programs and contribute significantly to service and educational activities of the department and University, including participation in a new Institute for Integrated Science and Society currently being planned at BC. BC Physics offers a rich condensed matter research environment, with strengths in applied and fundamental areas of correlated matter, nanophotonics, plasmonics, photovoltaics, thermoelectrics, topological matter, superconductivity, and physics at the bio-neuro-nano interface (visit physics.bc.edu for more information). Candidates will be judged on their research, potential for becoming an excellent teacher, and commitment to interdisciplinary science and education in the service of society, including diversity and equity. The successful candidates will be supported by nationally-competitive start-up packages. Applicants should submit a detailed curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching interests, and a research plan to apply.interfolio.com/36517. Applicants should also have 3 letters of reference submitted via Interfolio. Review of applications will begin in November, 2016 and continue until the position is filled.
