Faculty Positions

Research Assistant Professor, University of Washington – Department of Physics Priority will be given to applications received before January 18, 2021
The Nuclear Theory Group at the University of Washington invites applications for a full-time Research Assistant Professor in theoretical nuclear physics for an anticipated appointment beginning in 2021. This is a full-time, 12-month, non-tenure track position with a 3-year appointment, renewable for up to 5 years total depending on performance and funding. Although the candidate will be primarily engaged in research activities, all University of Washington faculty may engage in teaching, research, and service. Current group research interests include QCD, many-body theory, nuclear reactions at high and low energies, weak interactions and symmetries, effective field theory, lattice QCD, nuclear astrophysics, nuclear structure, EIC physics, and FRIB physics. https://phys.washington.edu/fields/nuclear-theory

Associate Professor/Professor, The Univeristy of the Western Cape [ The deadline for applications is January 15, 2021]
The University of the Western Cape (UWC) enjoys national and international acclaim for its continuing contribution to democratic change in South Africa and for making quality education accessible to all South Africans and developing centres of excellence of national importance. The successful candidate will join a dynamic and supportive Faculty dedicated to teaching and research, as well as to overall student development. The ideal candidate will be highly motivated and willing to make a significant contribution to the development of the Faculty.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy is one of the leading Departments in South Africa with a large post-graduate component. The Department concentrates on research in Nuclear Physics, Astrophysics, Condensed Matter Physics, Nanoscience, and Physics Education. Three SARChI research chairs, two in Astrophysics and one in Nuclear Science are based in the Department.

The Nuclear Physics group is actively involved in the fields of applied nuclear physics, nuclear structure and nuclear astrophysics and fundamental symmetries, and has strong collaborations with iThemba LABS locally and several international projects, such as those at CERN–ISOLDE and TRIUMF, and the nEXO neutrino-less double decay experiment.

Theoretical Nuclear Physics, Florida State University [Review of applications will start on September 1, 2020. The deadline for applications is February 1, 2021]
The Florida State University (FSU) Physics Department invites exceptionally qualified candidates to apply for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level in theoretical nuclear physics with emphasis on the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). The initial appointment is partially funded by the FRIB Theory Alliance. A successful candidate is expected to make significant contributions to the FRIB science mission.

The nuclear theory group at FSU studies nuclear phenomena at all scales, from the structure and dynamics of single hadrons, to atomic nuclei, to neutron stars. The nuclear theory group benefits from a fruitful synergy with the local experimental groups who conduct research at Jefferson Lab, at the local John D. Fox Nuclear Accelerator Facility, and at user facilities throughout the world.

The FSU Physics Department—with more than 60 research faculty and over 150 graduate students—performs creative and highly visible research in fundamental and applied science, blending fundamental physics and applications, theory and experiment in diverse areas, such as astrophysics, condensed-matter physics, and elementary-particle physics. More information about the FSU Physics Department is available at

The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. degree in physics from an accredited institution and demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching and mentoring a diverse undergraduate and graduate student body, while establishing a well-recognized research program of relevance to the FRIB science mission.

Applications should be submitted at https://jobs.fsu.edu (Job Opening ID 47723) and should include a letter of interest, a curriculum vitæ with a list of publications, and a research plan. Applicants should also arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be submitted through the application system following the directions on the job posting. Please direct all inquiries to ntsearch@physics.fsu.edu. Review of applications will start on September 1, 2020. The deadline for applications is February 1, 2021. The anticipated starting date for this position is the Summer semester of 2021.

Florida State University is an Equal Opportunity/Access/Affirmative Action/Pro Disabled & Veteran Employer.
