The Particle Physics & Astrophysics (PPA) Department at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory/Stanford University seeks applicants for faculty appointments in all areas of fundamental particle physics, cosmology and astrophysics, and accelerator science aligned with SLAC’s mission (see https://www6.slac.stanford.edu/research). We also encourage applications from candidates whose research can bridge SLAC’s current science program with emerging opportunities in machine learning and quantum information science. Inclusiveness and diversity are integral to SLAC’s commitment to excellence in research, engagement, and education. We therefore encourage applications from candidates identifying with groups that are historically underrepresented in physics.

All applications will be reviewed as part of a broad department-wide multi-year search. In addition, special attention will be given in 2021/22 to the following areas:

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Physics, and should send materials to the search committee through AcademicJobsOnline. Candidates should upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae (including a publication list), a research statement (three-page combined maximum), as well as a brief (< 300 word) summary of their expected research program. We encourage applicants, as a component of their research statement, to discuss their experience or commitment to engaging with diversity through activities such as fostering an inclusive environment, working with students from diverse backgrounds, or incorporating diverse perspectives. At least three and no more than five letters of reference should be submitted.

Stanford is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Stanford welcomes applications from all who would bring additional dimensions to the University's research, teaching and clinical missions.
