The Department of Physics at Boston University (BU) is seeking candidates for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in experimental high energy collider physics to join our effort on the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) starting fall 2020. We encourage applications from the broad experimental particle physics community, but we are particularly interested in candidates whose expertise includes instrumentation and detector development, trigger and readout electronics, advanced simulation techniques and data analysis. The new faculty member is expected to collaborate effectively with the CMS group at BU and to develop an independent, internationally recognized research program. The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent, and is expected to be an effective teacher and mentor in the undergraduate and graduate instructional programs of the Physics Department. Applications should be submitted via AcademicJobsOnline.org (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/15502) and should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of research interests, a statement of teaching experience and philosophy, and three letters of recommendation. Review of applications will start on December 15, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled. Applications from women and underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged. More generally, we are especially interested in candidates who, in addition to their commitment to excellence in teaching and research, contribute to the cultural, gender, racial, and ethnic diversity of the academic community. Boston University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
