Physics Tenure Track Assistant Professor - Experimental Condensed Matter/Quantum Science

The Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Denver (DU) invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position to begin in September of 2023. We seek candidates with research interests in experimental condensed matter physics whose research and teaching will support an initiative in Quantum Materials and Information Science, which launched with one faculty member already hired in 2022. All areas broadly related to quantum materials and information sciences will be considered, with potential for collaboration with existing research areas on campus and in the surrounding areas a particular plus. The successful candidate will possess enthusiasm for teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses, and demonstrate promise of developing an independent extramurally funded research program that involves both Ph.D. and undergraduate students. Though we intend to focus on experimental candidates, a theoretical or computational candidate with exceptionally strong match to the position and the department may be considered.

Applications should include a cover letter, CV, statements of teaching philosophy and research plans, one-page diversity statement, and names and contact information for at least three references. Applications completed before January 1, 2023 will be assured full consideration, but the selection process will continue until the position is filled.
