Faculty Position in Theoretical Nuclear Physics University of Minnesota
The School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, invites applications for a tenure-track position in the area of Theoretical Nuclear Physics. Candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D. in physics, astrophysics, or other related fields and should have demonstrated the potential to conduct a vigorous and significant research program as evidenced by their publication record and supporting letters from recognized leaders in the field. The ability to teach physics effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels is required. The appointment is expected to be at the Assistant Professor level, although a more senior appointment will be considered for a candidate with exceptional qualifications. The University of Minnesota has a strong and well-supported theoretical nuclear physics group pursuing topics that include heavy ion collisions at RHIC and LHC, AdS/QCD, finite temperature field theory, neutron stars, neutrino astrophysics, supernova explosions and gamma-ray bursts, evolution and nucleosynthesis of massive stars, and chemical evolution of galaxies. The group also has significant overlap in interests with members of the Fine Theoretical Physics Institute and the Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics. Applications are encouraged from researchers working on the above or any other topics in theoretical nuclear physics. The expected starting date for this position is August 27, 2018, although an earlier or later start can be arranged. Candidates for this position (Job ID 320296) must go to (https://z.umn.edu/TheoreticalNuclearPhysicsFaculty2017) and submit an application online. Application materials, which must be submitted as a single PDF file, should include a cover letter, a current C.V. with a list of publications, a statement of research interests, a statement of teaching interests, and the names of at least three references with complete address and contact information. Candidates should arrange to have letters of reference (signed and on official letterhead) sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org as PDF files no later than December 15, 2017. Alternatively, letters of reference may be sent to Professor Ronald Poling, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Minnesota, 116 Church St. SE, Minneapolis, MN 55455. All materials including letters of reference must be received by December 15, 2017 for full consideration. Review of applications will begin on December 16, 2017, and continue until the position is filled.
