The Department of Physics at Brandeis University invites applications for the position of tenure-track Assistant Professor beginning in the fall of 2018 in the interdisciplinary areas of biophysics, soft condensed matter physics and biologically inspired material science. We seek candidates interested in broad collaborations with a vision towards integrated sciences in which physics overlaps with other disciplines. Candidates are expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching programs while engaging in forefront research. Brandeis University offers a unique opportunity to participate in diverse interdisciplinary programs such as the NSF funded Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) focused on biologically inspired materials and a NIH supported training program in Quantitative Biology. Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2017, and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants should submit a detailed curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching interests, a research plan, and arrange to have three letters of reference submitted to AcademicJobsOnline at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9873. A research-intensive liberal arts university, Brandeis fosters highly collaborative science both within and between departments and is currently conducting multiple searches that will strengthen cross-disciplinary studies across the sciences. The suburban campus in Waltham, MA is close to the academic and biotechnology centers of Boston and Cambridge. Brandeis University is an equal opportunity employer, committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities. Diversity in its student body, staff and faculty is important to Brandeis’ primary mission of providing a quality education. The search committee is therefore particularly interested in candidates who, through their creative endeavors, teaching and/or service experiences, will increase Brandeis’ reputation for academic excellence and better prepare its students for a pluralistic society.
