Assistant Professor Position in Experimental Particle Physics and Astrophysics at Berkeley

Lance Cooper

The UC Berkeley Physics Department is conducting an open search to fill a tenure-track faculty position for an Assistant Professor in Experimental Particle Physics or Experimental Astrophysics.  We welcome applications from candidates across all areas of subatomic and astro physics. This includes but is not limited to programs currently established at UC Berkeley, including the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and other collider physics, long-baseline neutrinos, low-energy tests of fundamental symmetries, dark matter searches, gravity and cosmology, compact objects, and space physics.

Preference will be given to candidates who have promise in teaching, demonstrated originality and productivity in research, and the potential to advance the physics department’s goal of a more equitable and diverse scholarly environment. We are particularly interested in learning of talented doctoral students or junior faculty, who are women or underrepresented minorities (African Americans, Latin Americans or Hispanics, and Native Americans), as well as candidates with disabilities.

The application website is: .  Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of research, and a statement of teaching philosophy.  Optional materials include a cover letter and a statement of contributions to diversity.  When completing the online application, applicants should select the appropriate area(s) of specialization.  Applicants should arrange to have between three to five letters of reference submitted through the online system and at least three of the letters should come from referees outside the UC Berkeley system.
