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.

The Faculty of Arts and Science at NYU is at the heart of a leading research university that spans the globe. We seek scholars of the highest caliber, who embody the diversity of the United States as well as the global society in which we live. We strongly encourage applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, and other individuals who are under-represented in the profession, across color, creed, race, ethnic and national origin, physical ability, gender and sexual identity, or any other legally protected basis. NYU affirms the value of differing perspectives on the world as we strive to build the strongest possible university with the widest reach.

Faculty Position in Theoretical Soft Condensed Matter Physics

The Department of Physics and the Center for Soft Matter Research at New York University solicit applications for a tenure-track position in the areas of theoretical soft condensed matter physics and theoretical biophysics to begin September 1, 2017, pending administrative and budgetary approval. Duties will include undergraduate and graduate teaching. This position is part of an ongoing multi-year program at NYU to develop an international center for research at the interface between physics, chemistry, biology and engineering. While this search focuses on an appointment at the rank of tenure-track Assistant Professor, applications for more senior ranks will be considered in exceptional cases.

Please apply online at https://apply.interfolio.com/36651, with a letter describing current and planned research and teaching activities, a curriculum vitae, list of publications, and the names of three references. Applications received by December 1, 2016, will receive first consideration. Earlier submission is strongly encouraged.

James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellowships, The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP) at NYU

The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP) at NYU anticipates awarding one to two James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellowships to start in September 2017, subject to the availability of funding. James Arthur Fellows pursue independent research projects and work with others in the group as their interests dictate. Selection will be based on evidence of the potential to make important contributions in one or more of the following research areas: astrophysics (theoretical and observational), astroparticle physics, and cosmology. Submitted applications will be also considered for postdoctoral openings supported by individual faculty.

CCPP has recently strengthened and broadened its astrophysics program in theoretical and observational cosmology and exoplanets, with three new faculty: Anthony Pullen (observational cosmology and intensity mapping) is joining us in August 2016, and Yacine Ali-Haimoud (theoretical cosmology) and Katherine Deck (astrodynamics, exoplanets) are arriving in Fall 2017. Other CCPP faculty members are M. Blanton (observational astrophysics; SDSS), K. Cranmer (experimental particle physics; ATLAS), S. Dubovsky (particle theory and cosmology), G. Dvali (particle theory, black holes, cosmology), G. Farrar (particle physics, astrophysics, astroparticle physics; Pierre Auger Observatory), G. Gabadadze (particle theory, gravity and cosmology), A. Gruzinov (theoretical astrophysics and cosmology), D. Hogg (galaxy astrophysics and exoplanets), M. Kleban (string theory and cosmology), A. MacFadyen (high energy astrophysics, numerical simulations), M. Modjaz (observational astrophysics, supernovae), M. Porrati (string theory), J. Ruderman (particle theory and cosmology), R. Scoccimarro (cosmology), J. Tinker (cosmology and galaxy clustering; SDSS) and N. Weiner (particle and astroparticle theory, cosmology).

Postdocs benefit from the lively atmosphere of the Center and a vigorous visitors program. Members of CCPP have data access to the Sloan Digital Sky Survey III and IV, the opportunity to participate in the Pierre Auger collaboration and the possibility of participating in certain projects of the Palomar Transient Factory collaboration. The Center also has close ties with NYU's Courant Institute and the Center for Data Science.

Appointments are usually for three years. Exceptional candidates will be considered for longer term appointments. Those proposing to come with funding from outside fellowships will be eligible for continuation of their appointment. Your complete application must include a CV, publication list, statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation; the names of the people who will be submitting letters of recommendation should be listed in the application. The application should be submitted via below CCPP Online Application System.
