The Department of Physics anticipates filling at least one tenure-track Assistant Professor position in experimental condensed matter physics, to begin as soon as the Fall 2017 semester. Appointments at a more senior level will be considered for exceptional candidates.
We are looking for a talented and creative colleague who shares our overarching vision for pursuing excellence in both research and teaching. Our search is open to a wide variety of research directions across condensed matter physics. We are particularly interested in research expertise in novel quantum materials that bridge current departmental strengths in quantum correlations and materials physics.
We seek candidates who will develop externally funded, internationally recognized research programs and who will collaborate well with colleagues both in and outside the department. Mines is committed to providing an outstanding educational experience and applicants must show promise for and interest in developing and teaching courses across the undergraduate and graduate programs. Mentorship of students at all levels and from underrepresented groups is an important aspect of the position.
Candidates must have earned a doctoral degree in physics or a closely-related field, and have demonstrated potential for successful teaching, scholarship and service. The successful candidate must have a strong commitment to undergraduate/graduate education, excellent communication skills, and excellent interpersonal skills to work effectively as a member of a teaching team.
