The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, invites applicants for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions in QIS, one in Theoretical and one in Experimental Physics. This search will be coordinated with a separate search underway in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology. For an exceptional candidate, appointment at a more senior level may be considered.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in Physics or a related field by the start of employment and an outstanding record of research and publication. We seek applicants in all subfields of QIS, including many body physics, computation, communication, and sensing, and working with various platforms (e.g., solid state and AMO). Candidates whose skills complement the department’s existing strengths in superconducting qubits, quantum materials, and highly correlated systems are particularly encouraged.

The successful candidates will be expected to establish an independent research program that will attract external funding, and to teach effectively physics courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. A start date of 1 September 2020 is anticipated. Applicants should apply online via the Rutgers on-line portal:, providing a cover letter, a CV including list of publications, a statement of research plans, and a teaching statement, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted. Review of applications will begin on 1 November 2019, with those arriving by 1 December 2019 receiving the fullest consideration.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability, protected veteran status or any other classification protected by law.
