Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Theoretical Nuclear Physics
The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill seeks candidates with a Ph.D. in physics or a related area, a record of strong postdoctoral research in theoretical nuclear physics, and a commitment to teaching for appointment as a tenure-track assistant professor. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute for the first four years of employment to the Department of Energy Topical Nuclear Theory Collaboration for Double Beta Decay and Fundamental Symmetries. The collaboration currently includes experts in lattice QCD, nuclear structure, and physics at the interface of nuclear theory, particle theory, and cosmology. The nuclear-theory group at UNC has expertise in nuclear structure, quantum Monte Carlo methods, cold atoms, neutrino physics, nuclear astrophysics, and fundamental symmetries. At http://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/105659 applicants should specify Physics and Astronomy in the Department drop-down list box, then upload PDF versions of their cover letter, CV, publication list, and separate research and teaching/mentoring statements by December 16, 2016, when application review will begin.
