The Center for Theoretical Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is seeking applications for a junior faculty appointment in high-energy, nuclear, and/or quantum physics. We encourage applicants doing relevant research at any energy scale, including areas such as quantum computing and quantum information; cosmology, dark matter, and astroparticle physics; particle theory in and beyond the standard model; quantum field theory and amplitudes; QCD including strongly coupled matter; and string theory, gravity, holography, and mathematical physics. Candidates will be evaluated on the basis of potential contributions to theoretical physics research, and to the undergraduate and graduate teaching programs of the MIT Department of Physics. Interviews will occur in February 2020.

Faculty members at MIT conduct research, teach undergraduate and graduate courses, and supervise graduate and undergraduate participation in research. Candidates must show promise in teaching as well as in research. A Ph.D. in physics or physics-related discipline is required by the start of employment.
