The Department of Physics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has begun an expansion of its faculty. As part of this expansion, the Physics Department invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in experimental high energy physics to start September 1, 2017. The Department is currently involved in the ATLAS experiment at the LHC and is heavily engaged in muon software as well as searches for new phenomena at the Energy Frontier. The department is interested in candidates that can play a leading role in the ATLAS detector upgrade for the HL-LHC. The new faculty member will be part of the Amherst Center for Fundamental Interactions, http://www.physics.umass.edu/acfi/. Further information about the Department's theoretical and experimental efforts can be found at http://www.physics.umass.edu/. The Department seeks an individual with outstanding research and a strong commitment to teaching. A PhD and postdoctoral experience in an area closely related to experimental high energy physics are required. To apply online, please go to http://umass.interviewexchange.com/jobofferdetails.jsp?JOBID=77002 and submit a cover letter, resume including key publications, research plan, teaching statement and contact information for three professional references. Applicants should apply by the priority deadline of December 1, 2016, in order to ensure consideration. The university is committed to active recruitment of a diverse faculty and student body. The University of Massachusetts Amherst is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer of women, minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities and encourages applications from these and other protected group members. Because broad diversity is essential to an inclusive climate and critical to the University's goals of achieving excellence in all areas, we will holistically assess the many qualifications of each applicant and favorably consider an individual's record working with students and colleagues with broadly diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds in educational, research or other work activities. We will also favorably consider experience overcoming or helping others overcome barriers to an academic degree and career. We are seeking talented applicants qualified for an assistant professor position. Under exceptional circumstances, highly qualified candidates at other ranks may receive consideration.
