TT, Wright State University, OH

Note: The position is officially open field, but the department has two physics education researchers and several of us would like to add another PER or astronomy education research person. We have MS but not PhD students in the department, so interest in involving undergraduates in research is a plus.

The Wright State University Department of Physics is seeking candidates for a Physics Department tenure track faculty position starting in the Fall of 2017. The position continues a successful, longstanding program emphasizing productive growth in the department, with an additional focus on increasing the numbers of undergraduate and postgraduate students in the department. All areas of physics research, either adding to or complementing existing experimental and theoretical research areas, will be considered. Candidates that can enhance the recently created Interdisciplinary Applied Sciences and Mathematics Ph.D. program are especially valuable. A Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field is required. Postdoctoral experience and success in obtaining external funding are highly desirable, since physics faculty are expected to establish an externally funded research program.  A successful applicant will be expected to contribute to the diversity and excellence of the department, college, and university through research, effective teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and service.  To apply, submit a cover letter, vita, statements of research and teaching interest, and a list of at least three references to https://jobs.wright.edu/postings/11180.  Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.  More information about WSU and this position can be found at  https://science-math.wright.edu/physicsWSU is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.

Any questions in regard to this open position and search may be sent to physics@wright.edu
