Experimental High Energy Nuclear Physics Tenure-Track Assistant Professor

The Department of Physics at New Mexico State University seeks applicants for a Tenure-Track position at the level of Assistant Professor in Experimental High Energy Nuclear Physics. The successful candidate is expected to teach undergraduate and graduate physics and establish an externally-funded research program directly involving graduate and/or undergraduate students.

The NMSU Physics Department offers Bachelor's degrees in physics and engineering physics and Master's and Doctoral degrees. Current research areas in the department include high-energy nuclear physics; solid-state/condensed-matter physics and materials science; optics; and geophysics. The experimental high-energy nuclear physics group (S. Pate, V. Papavassiliou) conducts research with the MicroBooNE and SpinQuest experiments at Fermilab; the theoretical nuclear and particle physics group (M. Burkardt, M. Engelhardt, M. Schlegel) pursues research in the areas of hadron and vacuum structure, including phenomenology, Lattice QCD, and transverse momentum distributions.

We seek a person who will grow a vigorous, externally-funded research program in strong interaction physics at a US facility and have a deep commitment to both graduate and undergraduate physics education. All candidates must have a Ph.D. degree, at least one year of post-doctoral research experience, and an established record of research and publications. Candidates must send a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a brief summary of research and teaching experience, a short description of the candidate's teaching philosophy, and must arrange for three letters of reference. Applications must be filed electronically at https://jobs.nmsu.edu/postings/36802  and will be accepted through December 15, 2019. The position is anticipated to start in Fall, 2020. For further information or questions please contact the Chair of the Search Committee, Prof. Stephen Pate (spate@nmsu.edu). NMSU is an Equal-Opportunity/Affirmative-Action employer; Minorities, Females, Veterans, and those with a Disability are encouraged to apply.
