Tenure-Track Position in Physics, Department of Physics
The Physics Department invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position, with teaching duties starting September 2019. A more senior appointment may be possible in exceptional circumstances. We seek an energetic individual eager to teach throughout the undergraduate curriculum and to involve undergraduates in research, in any physics subfield (theory or experiment). The Department has ongoing research in experimental physics (atomic, hard, and soft condensed matter) and theoretical physics (biophysics, particle physics, and quantum information); we are broadly interested in individuals who can strengthen or expand our research areas. Startup funds will be available. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the intellectual vibrancy and diversity of the academic community through their research, teaching, and service, and who are committed to working effectively with a diverse student population; women and members of under-represented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
Information about the Physics Department, including research interests of current faculty and postgraduate plans of recent majors, can be found at http://physics.williams.edu. Applications should be submitted via Interfolio (http://apply.interfolio.com/53415) and should include a c.v., a research statement that details plans for undergraduate involvement, a statement of teaching interests, and at least three letters of reference. The Department is committed to building a diverse and inclusive community. Your cover letter should speak to your ability to work effectively with a student population that is broadly diverse with regard to gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation and religion. Applications completed by November 2nd will receive full consideration. All offers of employment are contingent upon completion of a background check.
