Faculty Positions at the University of Oregon

Experimental High Energy Physics and Optical Physics/Quantum Optics

As part of several planned academic searches in the next few years, the Physics Department at the University of Oregon seeks to fill two tenure-related positions to begin in Fall 2012.  We anticipate filling these positions at the assistant professor level, but will consider the possibility of an associate professor level appointment for exceptional candidates whose research and professional accomplishments advance the department’s mission and meet established UO academic criteria.

In the 2011-12 academic year, we are searching in two targeted areas:

Experimental Optical Physics/Quantum Optics (Posting #11304).  Areas of interest include optics-based atomic, molecular, or condensed-matter physics and quantum information. Close interaction with groups in other departments, in interdisciplinary research institutes including the Oregon Center for Optics and the Materials Science Institute, and in statewide initiatives like the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnology Initiative is encouraged.  Further inquiries concerning this search should be sent to optics_search@physics.uoregon.edu.

Experimental High Energy Physics (Posting #11305).  The Oregon high energy physics group has a strong and exciting research program with major commitments to ATLAS at the LHC, the LIGO gravitational wave observatory, and detector development for future accelerator-based experiments.  Applications from candidates with research interests that are directly relevant to these efforts or lie in related fields are encouraged.  Further inquiries concerning this search should be sent to hepsearch@physics.uoregon.edu.

Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent in physics or a related discipline and an outstanding record of research accomplishments.  The successful candidate will be expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels and to conduct a vigorous research program.  Salary will be commensurate with qualifications.  The successful candidates will support and enhance a diverse learning and working environment.

Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vita, list of publications, and a statement of research interests and future research plan to the Academic Jobs Online website (http://academicjobsonline.org/ajo).  Applicants should also arrange to have a minimum of three letters of reference sent directly to the AJO website on their behalf.  Review of applications will begin October 15, 2011, with consideration continuing until the position is filled.
