The Princeton University Physics Department invites applications for an Assistant Professor position in theoretical physics, broadly defined. The department has strong research groups in a number of subfields of theory (biophysics, condensed matter, cosmology and general relativity, high energy theory, and mathematical physics), but the goal of this search is not necessarily to strengthen an existing effort. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Physics and are expected to demonstrate an outstanding record of independent research accomplishment and creativity as well as a strong interest in teaching and mentoring students. Applications must be submitted electronically at http://physics.princeton.edu/jobs/.
Applicants must submit a CV, list of publications, a research statement and the contact information for three referees who will be asked to upload letters of recommendation to the site. For an exceptional candidate there is also the possibility of appointment at the tenured level.
Applications will be reviewed as they arrive by a cross-disciplinary selection committee. To ensure full consideration, all materials must be received before November 15, 2013. Inquiries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>.
Princeton University is an Equal Opportunity employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action regulations. The Physics Department is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and particularly welcomes applications from qualified women, minorities, veterans, and persons with disabilities.
