Faculty Position in the Department of Physics at Oklahoma State University

The Department of Physics at Oklahoma State University invites applications for a junior tenure-track faculty position in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics. The successful candidate should have a strong record of research in the areas of materials or device physics, with a preference for research related to electronic, optical and optoelectronic applications. We particularly encourage applications from candidates who can form collaborations within the department’s CMP, photonics, or medical/radiation physics groups, all of which have a significant materials physics component, and with research groups across OSU. The successful candidate will be expected to attract extramural research funding.

 

OSU is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty (currently 25% of the Physics Department faculty are from underrepresented groups). The Department of Physics welcomes applications from outstanding candidates, who, through their research, teaching, and/or service will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the Physics Department. A Ph.D. in Physics or an allied field is required as well as the promise of excellence in teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and the ability to mentor underrepresented students.

 

Appointments at the Assistant Professor level are expected with a start date of August 15, 2018. Candidates should submit a curriculum vita, list of publications, a brief statement of research plans and teaching plans, and a cover letter; and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be uploaded to Academic Jobs Online.

 

Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. All positions are contingent upon available funding.
