Junior faculty position in the area of experimental nuclear physics

The Department of Physics at Yale University invites applications for a junior faculty position in the area of experimental nuclear physics, broadly defined. The successful candidate will join an active group of experimentalists and theorists conducting research in neutrino oscillations, dark matter searches, nuclear structure, nuclear astrophysics, and relativistic heavy ion physics, using world-class facilities on the Yale University campus and elsewhere. We are especially interested in candidates whose research program is in weak interaction physics. Yale faculty are expected to lead internationally recognized and forefront research programs.

An appointment at the Assistant Professor level is expected, although in exceptional cases, an appointment at the level of Professor could be considered. Applicants are encouraged to apply online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/765 and must submit a letter of application (pdf format), curriculum vita, publication list, and a brief description of proposed research. 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 profile). For further information about the position, contact Professor Keith Baker, Chair of the Nuclear Physics Search Committee (keith.baker@yale.edu) or Professor Meg Urry, Chair of the Physics Department meg.urry@yale.edu). Applications that are complete by November 1, 2011 will be assured of full consideration.

Yale is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and applications from women and minorities are strongly encouraged.
