Location: Stony Brook, NY
Open Date: Jun 15, 2023
Deadline: Dec 15, 2023 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

The Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at Stony Brook University seeks applications for one Tenured Professor position in Theoretical Physics; the candidate will also be a Tenured Professor at the YITP/Department of Physics and Astronomy. The search is open to outstanding candidates in any field of theoretical physics, ranging from Quantum Gravity to Condensed Matter physics. The applicant does not necessarily need to be tenured or be in a tenure track position at another institution.

This individual is expected to engage in research characterized by creativity and vision, and in mentorship with a commitment to inclusivity. There are no teaching obligations or heavy administration duties required in this position, however, there will be ample resources for research. The faculty member is expected to be involved in selecting and mentoring postdocs as well.

The Simons Center for Geometry and Physics has close ties with the C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP) and the Physics and Mathematics departments, and is devoted to furthering fundamental knowledge in mathematics and theoretical physics, especially knowledge at the interface of these two disciplines.
