As part of a major faculty hiring initiative, the Department of Physics at the University of Florida (UF) seeks a full-time, nine-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor in Condensed Matter Experimental (CME) Physics to begin in August 16, 2019. Highly qualified candidates from all areas of CME physics, including materials physics, device physics, non-linear phenomena, interdisciplinary nanoscience and technology, and low-temperature physics, are encouraged to apply.
Presently, the CME group has a broad range of research activities that span the discipline, with the work complemented by a strong condensed matter theory group. Modern laboratory space and competitive start-up funds will be provided. Facilities for micro/nano-fabrication and characterization are available at the nearby Research Service Centers in the UF Nanoscale Institute. Available resources include machine and electronics shops with experienced technicians and a cryogenic fluids facility. Strong research opportunities exist with the affiliated, on-campus National High Magnetic Field Laboratory High B/T Facility, as do collaborative opportunities with faculty in other UF departments.
The University of Florida is an equal opportunity institution dedicated to building a broadly diverse and inclusive faculty and staff. Searches are conducted in accordance with Florida’s Sunshine Law. The Department particularly welcomes applicants who can contribute to a diverse and inclusive environment through their scholarship, teaching, mentoring, and professional service.
