The Department of Physics and Astronomy (http://salt.uaa.alaska.edu/) at the University of Alaska Anchorage invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level. The successful candidate will be expected to teach both lower division and upper division undergraduate physics courses and to establish a research program. The preferred candidate would either reinforce existing research areas at UAA or supplement these areas in a way to enhance a physics degree program. We are especially interested in candidates with experimental physics experience who can take advantage of our newly constructed research space. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in physics (or a closely related scientific field), teaching experience in Physics and a publication record. We are a small but growing department in a large, urban institution surrounded by scenic wilderness.
Initial reviews will begin 15 Dec 11; employment will begin August 2012.
