Position Description:    

*** The account for School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Minnesota has expired. ***

The School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, invites applications for a tenure-track position in the area of Experimental Condensed Matter Physics. The appointment is expected to be at the Assistant Professor level, although a more senior appointment will be considered for a candidate with exceptional qualifications. Candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D. in physics and should have demonstrated the potential to conduct a vigorous and significant research program as evidenced by their publication record and supporting letters from recognized leaders in the field. The ability to teach physics effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels is required. Condensed matter physics is a major research area at the University of Minnesota that involves 19 faculty members, including the recent addition of one experimentalist and four theorists. In 2014, the experimental condensed matter group moved into a new building with state-of the-art laboratory space. The new building is part of an institutional commitment to physics and nanoscience by the university, and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to customize their dedicated laboratory space in this building as well as have access to the facilities in the Minnesota Nanofabrication Center. The start date for this position is negotiable and could be as early as July 1, 2017.

Candidates for this position (Job ID 312051) must go to

and submit an application online. Application materials, which must be submitted as a single PDF file, should include a cover letter, a current C.V. with a list of publications, a statement of research interests, a statement of teaching interests, and the names of at least three references with complete address and contact information.

Candidates should arrange to have letters of reference (signed and on official letterhead) sent directly to as PDF files no later than November 28, 2016. Alternatively, letters of reference may be sent to

Professor Ronald Poling School of Physics and Astronomy University of Minnesota 116 Church St. SE Minneapolis, MN 55455
