Assistant Professor in Physics, Department of Physics
The Physics Department invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position, with teaching duties starting September 2020. 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 with a theoretical or computational focus. Startup funds will be available.
The department has nine full-time members and graduates approximately 16 physics majors annually, the majority of whom pursue advanced study or careers in physics or some related field. Present research areas include experimental atomic physics, particle physics, and hard and soft condensed matter as well as theoretical biophysics, particle physics, and quantum information. For more information see http://physics.williams.edu.
The department is committed to building a diverse and inclusive community. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the intellectual vibrancy and diversity of the academic community through their teaching, research, and service, and who are committed to working effectively with a diverse student population. We welcome applications from members of groups traditionally underrepresented in the field.
Applications should be submitted via Interfolio (http://apply.interfolio.com/66912) 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. Your application should speak to your ability to teach effectively and conduct research with a student population that is broadly diverse with regard to gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation and religion.
