U.Tennessee Assistant Professor position

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UT) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor in the field of experimental nuclear physics. This appointment will be in partnership with the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab) through the bridge program. Jlab will provide 50% of the new faculty member’s 9-month salary and benefits for the first 5 years of the tenure-track appointment, and in return, the successful candidate will be expected to devote 50% of their 9-month research effort to projects of interest to Jlab. Thus, we are seeking an individual with a primary interest in the research program of hadronic and nuclear physics conducted at JLab and potential interest in the proposed Electron Ion Collider. The successful individual will be expected to build a strong research program that will enhance the current programs at UT and JLab. Work will be performed both at the UT campus in Knoxville, Tennessee and at JLab in Newport News, Virginia. This position will require occasional travel to attend conferences and meetings.
