Faculty Position in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics
Physics Department Auburn University
The Physics Department at Auburn University is seeking a highly qualified individual for a tenure-track faculty position in theoretical/computational Atomic, Molecular, and Optical (AMO) physics. The AMO group at Auburn has active theoretical and experimental faculty with expertise in collision dynamics, spectroscopy, laser interaction, and massively parallel computer applications. The group benefits from strong collaborations between its experimental and theoretical members, and active participation in off-site experiments. Research subspecialties that are of interest include (but are not restricted to) laboratory astrophysics, electron and ion collisional processes with atomic and molecular systems, photon interaction with atoms and molecules, charge exchange processes, astrochemistry, and molecular spectroscopy. Applicants must possess a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in physics or a closely related field. Post-doctoral research experience is also highly desirable. Candidates at all faculty ranks will be considered. The successful candidate will be expected to: (1) develop a strong research program, (2) obtain external funding for their research, (3) provide high quality mentorship to undergraduate, graduate students and post-doctoral researchers, and (4) conduct excellent instruction at the undergraduate and graduate level in the physics curriculum. Excellent written and interpersonal communication skills are required. Candidates must apply online at: http://aufacultypositions.peopleadmin.com/postings/2445. Applications need to include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, research statement and the names and contact information for three professional references. Questions for further information can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the department can be found at: http://www.physics.auburn.edu. The review of applications will begin on December 1, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. The desired starting date is August 16, 2018. Candidates selected for this position must be able to meet eligibility requirements to work in the United States at the time the appointment is scheduled to begin and continue working legally for the proposed term of employment.
