Faculty Positions


Faculty position in theoretical physics at Yale University
The Department of Physics at Yale University invites applications for a faculty position in theoretical physics. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D., or equivalent degree, at time of hire and is expected to lead an internationally recognized research program at the forefront of any area of theoretical physics, and to teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Yale provides an engaging and vibrant research environment with many opportunities to interact and collaborate with outstanding theoretical and experimental colleagues across all subfields of physics and beyond.
An appointment beginning July 1, 2019 at the Assistant Professor level is expected, but exceptional senior candidates may be considered, pending administrative review.
Applicants are encouraged to apply online at Yale University. Applicants must submit a letter of application, curriculum vita, publication list, a brief description of proposed research, a teaching statement, and a diversity statement. Applicants should also arrange for 3 letters of recommendation to be uploaded to the same URL (which can happen only after the applicant has created a dossier through Interfolio).
Applications that are complete by November 17, 2018 will be assured of full consideration.
FRIB Theory Alliance Bridge Faculty Position at North Carolina State University
The Department of Physics at NC State University invites exceptionally qualified candidates to apply for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level in theoretical nuclear physics with relevance to the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). The initial appointment is partially funded by the FRIB theory alliance. A successful candidate is expected to contribute to FRIB-relevant research activities. Applicants will also need a strong commitment to excellence in teaching and mentoring at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
The NC State Department of Physics faculty perform creative, highly visible research in fundamental and applied science, blending fundamental physics and applications, theory and experiment. Our vision integrates research and innovative teaching to create a vibrant intellectual atmosphere within a welcoming and collegial environment. Minimum qualifications include an earned Ph.D. degree in physics or a physics-related area.
Applications must be submitted online at NC State University position number 00105538 and must include a curriculum vitae, cover letter, research statement, teaching statement, and diversity statement. Please arrange for at least three letters of reference to be sent directly to physicsjobs@ncsu.edu.
To receive full consideration, applications for the Fall 2019 academic year should be received by December 1, 2018.
Faculty openings in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Iowa State University (ISU)
The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Iowa State University (ISU) seeks candidates for faculty positions at a junior level for a cluster of positions in theoretical physics and astrophysics. We anticipate one or more hires in the fields of astrophysics, condensed matter, or nuclear theory, and are seeking candidates at the forefront of their respective fields who can envision fruitful connections and collaborations with theoretical efforts in other fields. Through this cluster of hires, we seek a balanced theoretical effort that focuses on the frontiers shared by multiple sub-disciplines. Qualified applicants must have a PhD in physics, astronomy, or a closely related discipline, a strong research program and enthusiasm for teaching undergraduate and graduate students.

Closing Date: November 15th, 2018.
Postdoc position in Nuclear Structure and Reaction Theory at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
The LLNL Nuclear Data & Theory Group has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Researcher to conduct research at the intersection of nuclear structure and reaction theory. The successful candidate will be part of a team that is developing an integrated structure and reaction theory for medium-mass and heavy nuclei.
More details about the position (Job Id: 104115) and a link to the application page can be found here.
The review process will begin October 15 and continue until the position is filled. For further information, please contact Jutta Escher (escher1@llnl.gov) or Walid Younes (younes1@llnl.gov).
FRIB Theory Alliance Fellowship Positon
The FRIB Theory Alliance is seeking outstanding candidates for an FRIB Theory Fellowship. The successful candidate will conduct independent or collaborative research at a Partner Institution on nuclear structure, reactions, astrophysics, and/or fundamental symmetries relevant to the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). The FRIB Theory Alliance is a consortium of universities and national laboratories actively engaged in theoretical research in FRIB science. FRIB will be a new national user facility for nuclear science, funded by the DOE Office of Science and operated by Michigan State University.
Requirements: PhD in nuclear theory or related area and the ability to work with export controlled items. Please apply at Academic Jobs Online. Applications will be reviewed starting October 12, 2018.
Postdoctoral Associate Position in Nuclear and Many-Body Theory at Yale University
The group of Yoram Alhassid in the Physics Department at Yale University invites applications for a postdoctoral associate position starting in the Summer or Fall of 2018 in the areas of nuclear and many-body theory. Other research areas of the group include cold atoms and mesoscopic physics/nanoscience.  Applicants should submit their CV, including a list of publications and a brief description of research interests at academicjobsonline.org, and arrange for three letters of reference. Applications will be reviewed starting January 13, 2018.
