The Department of Physics at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) invites outstanding applicants for a new tenure-track Assistant Professor position starting August 2012.
We seek a broadly trained biophysicist who has the potential to establish a highly visible undergraduate research program and will collaboratively contribute to interdisciplinary curricular and scholarly efforts within the School of Science and at the College. This search is focused on candidates whose research interests are in experimental biophysics. The successful candidate will teach upper-level physics courses as well as introductory-level, calculus-based physics and labs. An earned doctorate in physics, biophysics, or a closely-related field is required. Although post-doctoral experience is strongly preferred, other backgrounds will be considered; ABDs will be considered only if the degree will be completed prior to start date.
Teaching and research are mutually supportive activities at TCNJ. Candidates should be strongly committed to the teacher-scholar model in a primarily undergraduate, residential institution and to maintaining both high quality teaching and an active and productive research program involving highly motivated undergraduates. Faculty members also serve as academic advisors and have service responsibilities within the College. A research laboratory and start-up funds will be provided. The Physics Department, which currently has nine full-time, tenure-line faculty members and approximately 80 majors, is housed in a modern science complex (opened Fall 2002) that offers state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities and instrumentation.
