Computational biological physics, including but not limited to exploration of quantum mechanical, atomistic, or multiscale simulations of biomaterials and biomolecules and other processes in biomolecular and biochemical systems. Apply online at https://apply.interfolio.com/55788. For more information contact the Chair of the Computational Biophysics Search at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications must be submitted online and must include: (i) cover letter, (ii) curriculum vitae with full publication list, (iii) statement of research and proposed activities, (iv) statement of teaching philosophy, (v) three confidential letters of recommendation.
To ensure full consideration, applications must be submitted by November 15, 2018.
The UF Department of Physics offers an excellent research environment with strong groups in the related areas of condensed matter experiment and theory as well as computational physics and chemistry. Numerous opportunities exist for on-campus collaboration with biomedical researchers through the six colleges of the UF Health Science Center and through UF institutes and centers such as the Cancer and Genetics Research Center, the Emerging Pathogens Institute, the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, the McKnight Brain Institute, the Quantum Theory Project, and the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. The Department of Physics also has close collaborations with the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, which has facilities in Gainesville, Tallahassee, and Los Alamos.
Each successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) in Physics or a closely related field. Postdoctoral research experience is expected. Demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching and mentoring a diverse undergraduate and graduate student body, while establishing a successful independent research program, is essential. Research start-up funds will be provided. Salaries are competitive and commensurate with the qualifications and experience that are expected at the level of Assistant Professor, and include a full benefits package.
Searches are conducted in accordance with Florida's Sunshine Law. The University of Florida is an equal opportunity institution dedicated to building a broadly diverse and inclusive campus. The Physics Department particularly welcomes applicants who can contribute to a diverse and inclusive environment through their scholarship, teaching, mentoring, and professional service. If an accommodation due to disability is needed to apply for this position, please call (352) 392-2477 or the Florida Relay System at (800) 955-8771 (TDD).
About University of Florida
The Department of Physics at the University of Florida has been working to become one of the premier physics departments in the United States. From a small department with 22 faculty members in 1979, we have grown to more than 50 faculty members. The department moved into a new, 225,000 sq. ft., building in January 1998. The building includes laboratory and teaching space designed specifically for the purpose.
The growth has broadened and strengthened the research interests of the department. We have active groups in astrophysics, biological physics, condensed matter physics, and elementary particle physics. Our faculty are internationally renowned in their areas of expertise at the various frontiers of physics and are recipients of numerous awards and honors.
The UF physics department operates the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory together with Florida State University, and Los Alamos National Laboratory, opening new research avenues for the exploration of new emerging materials and technologies. Members of the Department are also involved in many national, multi- institutional programs, such as the Laser Interferometric Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO), and h...igh energy physics experiments conducted at Fermilab, and CERN. Members of the faculty are spokesmen both of LIGO and the CDF experiment at Fermilab, as well as playing leadership roles in the CMS experiment at CERN. The Institute for Fundamental Theory and the Quantum Theory Project provide the infrastructure needed to foster cross-disciplinary research among the theorists in our department.
