The Department of Physics seeks to establish a pool of applicants for Research Assistant and Research Associate positions. The Research Assistant will conduct research under the direction of the principal investigator (PI) and Research Associates will be conducting research with only general guidance from the PI. These positions are funding contingent, part-time or temporary assignments with an appointment of up to one year, but with the possibility of renewal for up to three years depending on need, funding and performance. For the Research Assistant positions, a Bachelor’s degree, along with appropriate experience is required, and the Research Associate positions require a PhD by the start of the position with relevant research experience. Salary is dependent upon education, experience and available funding. Please see http://physics.uoregon.edu for information on current research within the Physics Department.
Applications will be accepted on a continuous basis and the pool will remain active through 6/30/14. Applicants will be screened as needs arise. Successful candidates will have professional experience in a research lab and a commitment to working effectively with students, faculty and staff from diverse backgrounds. Hires from this pool may require a background check.
Applicants must be eligible to begin work in the United States within two weeks of an offer of employment.
