The Physics Department at New Mexico State University anticipates hiring a tenure-track assistant professor in theoretical nuclear and particle physics. Job duties include teaching, research, service, and outreach. The successful candidate is expected to teach undergraduate and graduate physics, and establish an externally-funded research program directly involving graduate and/or undergraduate students.
The NMSU Physics Dept. offers Bachelor’s degrees in physics and engineering physics and Master’s and Doctoral degrees. Current research areas in the department include high-energy nuclear physics; solid-state/condensed-matter physics and materials science; optics; and geophysics. The experimental high-energy nuclear physics group conducts research with the SpinQuest fixed-target Drell-Yan experiment and the MicroBooNE neutrino experiment, both at Fermilab; the theoretical nuclear and particle physics group pursues research in the areas of hadron and vacuum structure, including phenomenology and Lattice QCD.
A Ph.D. in physics or closely related field is required and some postdoctoral experience is highly desired. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in hadron structure physics, broadly defined. Applications must be filed electronically at https://jobs.nmsu.edu/postings/38955 and include a resume, a statement of research interests, a short description of the candidate’s teaching philosophy and the contact information of at least three persons familiar with the candidate who are willing to provide letters of reference. To receive full consideration, applications, including letters of reference, must be complete by July 19, 2020. The position is anticipated to start in August 2020. For further information or questions please contact the Head of the Search Committee, Prof. Matthias Burkardt, at email@example.com. NMSU is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer.
