The Physics and Energy Science Department at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs invites applications for a tenure track assistant professor, to begin August 17, 2020. We seek a theorist in the area of condensed matter physics/nanophysics/biophysics. The candidate should bring significantly new expertise, but be able to collaborate with existing physics faculty (i.e. liquid crystals/soft matter, nanophysics, biophysics, EM waves in materials, and/or linear and nonlinear magnetization dynamics).
The successful candidate will be a dynamic, energetic, creative, and engaging scholar; responsibilities include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in physics, with a typical teaching load of 2 courses per semester. The position also includes supervising undergraduate, MSc and PhD students and publishing in refereed journals. The successful applicant will be expected to have the background and potential for excellent teaching in physics at all levels, a demonstrated ability for first-rate research, a commitment to working with graduate and undergraduate students, and the ability to attract external funding. Service at the departmental, university or professional level is also required.
All applications must be made through the CU Careers website. Priority date is February 27, 2020.
