The Department of Physics at the University of Chicago, together with research institutes and centers including the Enrico Fermi Institute and the James Franck Institute, is conducting a search at the rank of tenure-track Assistant Professor. The search is open to all subfields of experimental and theoretical physics, including new initiatives in quantum science and biological physics and opportunities in the experimental Energy and Intensity Frontier particle physics program. Department members play leading roles in a wide range of research areas; details can be found at the Department website. The University of Chicago has an inherently crosscutting and interdisciplinary structure that is supportive of newly emerging research opportunities.
The successful candidates will conduct an independent research program, and teach and advise undergraduate and graduate students. Qualified candidates may be eligible for a Neubauer Family Assistant Professorship or a Clare Boothe Luce Assistant Professorship. Review of applications will begin on November 5, 2021 and will continue until the position is filled. If applicants would like to be considered for appointments in 2022, we strongly encourage them to submit their applications by November 5, 2021.
Completion of all requirements for a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field at the time of hire.
