Description: The Department of Physics at Ohio State University announces an opening for a tenure-line faculty hire in experimental ultrafast physics. The appointment is effective in the Autumn 2023 and the rank is at the Assistant Professor or Associate Professor level. Ohio State University has a strong track record of research and funding in ultrafast science and intense laser field physics. Besides strong single investigator programs, Ohio State has two major laser facilities: the NeXUS project (https://nsf-nexus.osu.edu) is an NSF mid-scale ultrafast user facility under construction and the SCARLET 300 TW laser facility (https://hedp.osu.edu) conducts research on high energy density physics. These unique resources and first-class faculty provide an exciting opportunity for engagement by a motivated individual.

Qualifications: Candidates with an established research record are invited to apply. We are seeking candidates who, in addition to pursuing excellence in research, will also have a strong commitment to teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Department values diversity and is committed to building a culturally diverse, equitable and inclusive intellectual community. Applications from women and historically underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Candidates must hold a PhD in physics or a closely related field. Appointment is contingent on the university’s verification of credentials and other information required by law and/or university policies, including but not limited to a criminal background check.

The Ohio State University is committed to enhancing academic excellence. Recruiting, supporting, and retaining faculty of the highest caliber is a core component of this commitment. In support of this, The Office of Academic Affairs (OAA) has created the Office of Dual Careers and Faculty Relocation (DCFR) to focus on supporting new and prospective faculty. This support includes dual careers services, consultation and resources related to relocation, as well as identifying opportunities to engage on campus and the surrounding community. While employment opportunities are not guaranteed, resources and consultation are available to support the partners of new and prospective faculty as they are considering The Ohio State University and throughout their transition.

The Ohio State University is committed to establishing a culturally and intellectually diverse environment, encouraging all members of our learning community to reach their full potential. Over the next few years, The Ohio State University is committed to welcoming 350 new faculty hires, many of which will contribute to growing our role as a premier research university equipped to answer and interrogate the critical domestic and global societal challenges that deter equality and inclusion. We are responsive to dual-career families and strongly promote work-life balance to support our community members through a suite of institutionalized policies.

The Ohio State University believes in diversity in people and ideas. What Ohio State does matters. And how we do it matters. When we are at our best, we make a real difference to people. We believe that the university should be a place where people can work and learn together in a safe environment, free of violence, harassment, discrimination, exploitation, and intimidation. As such, finalists for any faculty position that carries tenure must sign an authorization and disclosure form, which will allow current or prior employer(s) to share information to the University regarding any findings of employment-related misconduct or disciplinary proceedings against a candidate and/or any pending investigations related to alleged misconduct. Such information shall include findings and pending investigations with respect to sexual harassment, violence, or harassment; research misconduct; financial fraud or misconduct; foreign influence violations, grant misuse or misconduct; and/or any other type of finding or pending investigation relating to a candidate's employer's policies and rules governing faculty conduct that may reasonably be expected to affect a candidate's appointment. If the University becomes aware of any past finding of misconduct or pending investigations that were not disclosed, Ohio State will treat that as a serious omission and reserves the right to rescind an offer or terminate employment. https://oaa.osu.edu/faculty-misconduct-reference-check.
