Open Faculty Positions


Faculty Positions in Hard Condensed Matter, Quantum Information and Atomic Molecular And Optical Physics

The Department of Physics at New York University invites applications for two faculty positions in the general areas of hard condensed matter, quantum information and atomic molecular and optical physics. These positions are part of an initiative for further significant growth in this area and establishment of a Center for Quantum Phenomena in the department. One of the positions will be in quantum material thin film synthesis and characterization, a focus of one of the research themes in the Center.

The openings are for experimental physicists at the tenure track Assistant Professor level, but more senior candidates in both theory and experiment may also be considered under exceptional circumstances. A successful candidate will have a Ph.D. and is expected to establish a leading research program in his/her field, as well as teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The positions can begin as early as September 1, 2017, pending administrative and budgetary approval.

Interested candidates should apply online at http://apply.interfolio.com/36828, with a letter describing current and planned research and teaching activities, a curriculum vitae, list of publications, and the names of three references. Review of applications will begin on November 14, 2016. More information about department’s research programs can be found at http://physics.as.nyu.edu.
