Tenure-track Faculty in Condensed Matter Physics
Location: Notre Dame, IN
Open Date: Aug 30, 2023
Description:The Stavropoulos Center for Complex Quantum Matter at the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Notre Dame invites applications for two faculty positions in topics closely related to the Center's profile ().
One position will be in experimental condensed matter physics. While the current experimental needs of the Center are for the expertise of colleagues working within the broad area of out-of-equilibrium studies, spectroscopic studies and structural investigation of quantum matter, or high pressure study of novel materials, exceptional candidates from all experimental subfields of condensed matter are encouraged to apply.
The other position will be in theoretical condensed matter physics. While the current theory needs of the Center are for the expertise within a broad spectrum of computational condensed matter theory, such as density functional theory, quantum information, or dynamical mean field theory, exceptional candidates from all areas of theoretical condensed matter physics will be considered.
The appointments will be made at assistant, associate, or full professor level, in accordance with the experience and research achievements of the candidates.
The condensed matter group at Notre Dame consists of 6 experimental and 4 theoretical faculty members, specializing in hard condensed matter, quantum materials, complex networks, and biological physics, associated to the newly established Stavropoulos Center for Complex Quantum Matter, led by Laszlo Forro, the Aurora and Thomas Marquez Chair Professor of Physics. The Center's mission is to synthesize materials of interest for novel technologies and to study them with cutting-edge experimental and theoretical methods.
We seek faculty members committed to developing and sustaining an environment of inclusive excellence in research, teaching, and service. The successful candidate must demonstrate the ability to develop a highly successful research program, attract independent research funding, teach effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, and engage with students from diverse backgrounds. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent advanced degree. Salary and rank will be commensurate with the successful applicant's experience and research accomplishments. The starting date is foreseen for the second half of 2024.
The Department of Physics at Notre Dame has 45 tenured and tenure-track faculty; another 22 research, teaching and concurrent faculty; more than 100 graduate students; and about 120 undergraduate physics majors. Additional information about the department and the College of Science can be found at and respectively.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, list of publications, detailed research plans, and a statement of teaching and mentoring. Candidates must also arrange for at least three letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin on November 15 and will continue until the positions have been filled.
The Department is committed to diversifying its faculty and encourages applications from women and members of traditionally underrepresented groups.
Ph.D. in physics, physical chemistry, or materials science
