At the end of this initial period the candidate will be considered for promotion with tenure at Stony Brook University. The expected start date is September 2018.

The Department features a highly ranked faculty, excellent students, close affiliation with experimental and theoretical research centers of international reputation at Stony Brook University, and its proximity to BNL.

The successful candidate will have demonstrated research credentials in experimental nuclear or high energy physics. He/she is expected to develop a research program in experimental nuclear physics, and will have an opportunity to join the ongoing efforts on design, construction and physics with the sPHENIX detector while pursuing other current physics opportunities in the field, and in the out years lead in to the science of an Electron Ion Collider (EIC). The candidate is also expected to attract independent research funding and to possess a keen interest in teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in the department.

All applications must be submitted at:

Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, copies of up to three recent papers, a research statement, a statement of teaching philosophy, and names (and affiliation) of at least three references.
