We seek a candidate with effective communication skills who will join us in our commitment to outstanding teaching and the tradition of involving undergraduate and masters students in externally-funded laboratory research. Creighton, a Jesuit university committed to excellence in the liberal arts tradition, has been consistently rated as the top Master’s-granting university in the Midwest. Creighton is located in downtown Omaha, a vibrant community of 900,000 that was recently rated the sixth most livable city in the U.S. The Physics Department offers both Bachelors and Masters degrees. We have an opening for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning in August 2017. Successful candidates should expect to teach a wide range of courses, from the introductory-level through graduate-level. Preferred research areas are high energy nuclear physics, medical physics, or biophysics, although highly qualified candidates in other fields will be considered. A Ph.D. in physics or engineering is required. More information about our department and this position can be found at http://physicsweb.creighton.edu.
The initial application includes a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy consistent with the tradition of Jesuit liberal arts education, a research plan, and names and contact information for three professional references. Initial applications must be submitted electronically at https://careers.creighton.edu.
Applicants who advance beyond the initial selection process will be asked to provide the following additional documents directly to the Physics department: undergraduate and graduate transcripts, letters of recommendation from the candidate's three references, and evidence of successful teaching (if available). These materials must be provided within one week of being requested for full consideration, so applicants may wish to ask references to have letters prepared prior to notification. Initial submission of the documents may be electronic, but original copies will be required prior to a campus visit.
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, but review of applications will begin October 15, 2016. Creighton is an EO/AA Employer: M/F/Disabled/Vet and seeks a wide range of applicants for this position in support of one of our core values—gender, ethnic and cultural diversity.
Questions regarding the position may be directed to the chair of the search committee, Dr. Jack Gabel, at email@example.com or 402-280-3066.
