The School of Physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications for a faculty position in quantum condensed matter physics, beginning Fall 2020. Both experimentalists and theorists are welcomed to apply to this faculty appointment, which will be made at the Assistant Professor level or at higher levels in exceptional cases. Candidates working on quantum phenomena in materials and solid-state systems, as well as their applications, are invited to apply. Candidates for these positions should have received a doctorate degree in Physics and work experience interfacing with other disciplines is welcomed.
Georgia Tech has existing strengths in quantum condensed matter, cold atom physics, and quantum engineering. The School of Physics is situated at the heart of the Georgia Institute of Technology campus in Midtown Atlanta and benefits from its association with this vibrant, diverse metropolis. We strongly encourage applications from members of groups traditionally underrepresented in physics. Georgia Tech, a unit of the University System of Georgia, is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
At the application site, https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/15115 , applicants should provide (1) a cover letter, (2) a curriculum vitae including a list of publications, (3) a research and teaching statement, and (4) three letters of reference (uploaded by the letter-writers). Review of complete applications will begin after December 1, 2019 and continue until the position is filled. Inquiries may be addressed by email to email@example.com.
About Georgia Institute of Technology
Welcome to the School of Physics!
• To perform frontier research in pure and applied physics, and areas of technological importance.
• To provide an outstanding educational experience for our students, the scientists and engineers of the 21st century.
• To provide the institutional knowledge base in physical science, and to disseminate our current knowledge through interaction with other research units, the academic world and the community at large.
The School of Physics offers programs of study leading to B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. The School is comprised of 36 faculty members, 123 undergraduate majors (one of the largest programs in the United States) and 109 graduate students.
The Howey Physics Building is comprised of 26,000 sq. ft. of instructional space (classrooms and laboratories), 156,000 sq. ft. of research laboratory space, and adequate office space for faculty, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students and visitors.
The School of Physics offers Bachelors degrees in Physics or Applied Physics. A core of technical courses is intended to give a strong background in mathematics and the physical principles of mechanics, electricity and magn...etism, thermodynamics, and quantum theory. The School of Physics also offers programs of study leading to certificates in Applied Optics; Atomic, Molecular, and Chemical Physics; and in Computer Bases Instrumentation.
The graduate curriculum in the School of Physics provides the background and training needed to conduct and complete high quality, world-recognized research. Moreover, owing to the experiences we offer for supervised teaching of undergraduate laboratory courses, graduate students from diverse backgrounds develop into creative physicists who can function effectively in educational, industrial or government laboratory settings. Successful completion of the Ph.D. program in Physics requires (a) completion of course work, (b) participation in seminars and Special Problems, (c) acceptance into Ph.D. candidacy, and (d) thesis research.
Every faculty member of the School of Physics earned a Ph.D. degree and completed post-doctoral research positions prior to embarking on his or her independent academic careers. In addition, each member of the faculty teaches at both the undergraduate and graduate level on a regular basis. Both undergraduate and graduate students have free access to the faculty. Several faculty are involved with CETL (Georgia Tech’s Center for Enhancement of Teaching and Learning) and CEISMIC (Georgia Tech’s Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics and Computing). CETL offers courses that teach the graduate students how to teach. CEISMIC currently operates over 20 programs from K-12 students and/or teachers, partnering in the process with many of the Georgia public school systems and prominent educational agencies. These two Centers are available to students.
