|Assistant Professor in Experimental Biophysics or Soft Condensed Matter Physics,
University of Oregon.
The Physics Department at the University of Oregon invites applications for a tenure track faculty position in experimental biophysics, or soft condensed matter physics with biophysical connections, to begin in the 2014-2015 academic year. The search is directed at the Assistant Professor level but we will consider more senior candidates in exceptional circumstances. The successful applicant will have opportunities to interact with research groups within Physics, in other departments, and in interdisciplinary research institutes including the Materials Science Institute, the Institute for Molecular Biology, and the Oregon Center for Optics, and will have access to newly constructed microfabrication and electron microscopy facilities.
Applicants must have a Ph. D. or equivalent in physics or a related discipline and an outstanding record of research accomplishments. The successful candidate will be expected to teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels and to conduct a vigorous research program. We expect to fill this position at the rank of assistant professor. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and start-up funds will be available.
Candidates should submit an application letter, curriculum vita, a list of publications, and a statement of future research interests and plans to the Academic Jobs Online website (URL). Applicants should also arrange to have a minimum of three letters of reference sent directly to the AJO website on their behalf. To ensure consideration, please submit application materials by November 1, 2013. The position will remain open until filled. The successful candidate will support and enhance a diverse learning and working environment.
