The Department of Physics at the University of Florida invites applications for a full-time, nine-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor position in experimental astrophysics to begin August 16, 2017. The department seeks to enlarge its footprint in gravitational wave detector physics and the search for experimental dark matter. In addition, the department seeks to expand its research portfolio into new areas of experimental astrophysics. The successful candidate will build on the strength of the existing gravitational wave detector (LIGO, LISA) and dark matter detection groups (ADMX, ALPS, CDMS), and/or develop new programs.
The successful candidate must hold an earned Ph.D. or equivalent degree in Physics, Astrophysics, or Astronomy, and is expected to establish a broad internationally competitive, and well recognized research program.
Applications must be submitted online at http://explore.jobs.ufl.edu/cw/en-us/listing/ reference job number 500829 and must include: (1) a cover letter, (2) a complete curriculum vitae, (3) a research statement, and (4) a teaching statement. In addition, names and email address for three references must be provided on the application. An email will be sent automatically to your references, requesting them to upload their letter. For full consideration, applications must be complete by February 15, 2017.
