ICMT Moore Postdoctoral Search 2017-2018

Applications are invited to fill several Moore postdoctoral positions in condensed matter theory at the ICMT, starting in August 2018, (see FAQ). Applications for these positions are encouraged from outstanding individuals, regardless of specialty.

Postdoctoral fellowships provide especially wide latitude in choosing research activities, and fellows are encouraged to be broadly engaged with condensed matter research activities at Illinois.

Departmental postdoctoral positions are typically more closely tied to a specific supporting projects. However, all Illinois postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to take advantage of the extensive opportunities provided to develop breadth through wide-ranging collaborations. Condensed matter theory faculty at Illinois interact with other theorists at Illinois, with the superb and large experimental condensed matter group, including members of the Seitz Materials Research Laboratory, and have access to unparalleled facilities for computation through the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, including the new Blue Waters facility. They also interact with biologists elsewhere on campus, including through the University's Institute for Genomic Biology.

The University of Illinois is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.

2017 Theoretical Particle/Nuclear Physics Search

FACULTY POSITION

THEORETICAL PARTICLE/NUCLEAR PHYSICS

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT URBANA-CHAMPAIGN

The Department of Physics invites applications for one or more full-time tenure-track or tenured faculty positions in Theoretical Particle/Nuclear Physics, beginning as early as August 16, 2018. Areas of interest include nucleon or nuclear structure, lattice gauge theory, collider phenomenology, and model building. Appointment is expected at the Assistant Professor level, but appointment at a higher level will be considered for exceptionally well-qualified candidates. A Ph.D. or equivalent is required, along with the ability to teach effectively at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and to conduct a vigorous and significant research program.

The successful candidate is expected to interact with the high-energy theory group as well as the experimental high-energy group and/or the nuclear experimental group. The interests of the theory group include flavor physics, lattice gauge theory, phenomenology of theories beyond the standard model, early universe cosmology, and gauge/gravity dualities while areas presently covered by the experimental groups comprise beyond-the-Standard-Model and heavy ion physics at the LHC, double beta decay and electric dipole moments, QCD/nucleon structure, muon g-2, mu2e, neutrino physics, and observational cosmology.

For full consideration, applications should be received by 30 October 2017. Please visit http://jobs.illinois.edu to view the complete position announcement and application instructions.
