Baylor seeks to fill the following tenure-track faculty position in the Department of Physics, College of Arts and Sciences:
Assistant Professor of Physics
The Department of Physics at Baylor University invites applications for a tenure-track position in experimental high energy physics at the assistant professor level beginning in August 2019. Outstanding candidates with an earned doctorate in physics are invited to apply.
The experimental high energy physics group at Baylor, led by Profs. Dittmann and Hatakeyama, actively participates in the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. The group currently carries a major role in the operation and upgrade of the hadron calorimeter, and is actively involved in the upgrade of the endcap calorimeter for the high luminosity LHC. The group is engaged in searches for supersymmetry and other new phenomena, and vigorously pursues the use of machine learning techniques for data analysis activities. The successful candidate is expected to collaborate effectively with the experimental high energy physics group at Baylor and develop an independent, internationally recognized research program, as well as to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels in our physics program, mentor/teach doctoral students, and serve the university and broader physics community.
Application materials may be submitted online at http://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/11753. Applicants are asked to provide a cover letter, a curriculum vita, a statement of research interests, and a statement of teaching philosophy. Applicants should also arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be uploaded. For full consideration, applications should be complete by November 15, 2018.
