Tenure Track Assistant Professor
(Theoretical and Computational Spectroscopy)
Department of Physics and Astronomy
University of Delaware
Newark, DE  

The Department of Physics and Astronomy in the College of Arts and Sciences of the University of Delaware seeks an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) in theoretical and computational spectroscopy of atoms, molecules, and their clusters. A PhD degree in physics or a related discipline and postdoctoral experience are required. Candidates with demonstrated research background in developing new methods and algorithms to describe spectral transitions from first principles as well as those developing large-scale computational approaches are especially invited to apply. Example areas of research include development of algorithms to describe processes such as excitations of atomic and molecular clusters, attosecond and ultrafast nuclear dynamics in molecules, time-resolved and two-dimensional multiphoton pump-probe interrogation of matter, high-precision tests of laws of physics. Candidates are expected to have experience in interacting with experiments in the field, in providing theoretical predictions critical for interpreting experiments. Spectroscopy is a longstanding specialty of the Department of Physics and Astronomy, both theory and experiment, and candidates should strengthen or complement these activities on the theoretical side. The new faculty member will play a critical role in the interdisciplinary Quantum Science and Engineering graduate program and in collaborations with UD’s Chemistry and several engineering departments. The successful candidate will benefit from a competitive start-up budget. In addition to pursuing an excellent research program (including publications, presentations, securing external funding, and collaborating with researchers at UD and elsewhere), the successful candidate will be expected to provide effective instruction and advising to a diverse population of graduate and undergraduate students and to demonstrate commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion in the educational, research, and academic service activities. International candidates are welcome to apply.  UD International Students and Scholars Services will aid international scholars.

To Apply: For full consideration, applications should be submitted by October 31, 2022, but applications will be accepted until position is filled. Applicants should upload (1) a cover letter (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) a 3-to-5-page research proposal, (4) a one-page statement on their teaching experience, interests, and philosophy and (5) a one-page statement on how their teaching, research and/or service can demonstrate a commitment to and advance diversity, equity, and inclusion. All these documents and contact information for three references should be submitted to  (the reference contacts will receive an automated request to upload the letters). Reference letters must be uploaded before the application can be reviewed. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2022.
