TT at San Francisco State Univ.

[Ed. note: This is a separate position in the SFSU physics department that is distinct from the one recently posted in educational psychology.]

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at San Francisco State University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in theoretical high-energy physics. We are also interested in applicants working at the interface of particle and nuclear theory. Specific interests among the current particle physics faculty include lattice gauge theory, nonperturbative aspects of quantum field theory and hadronic physics. More information about our department can be found at the department’s website,

The department offers Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees and is committed to excellence in both research and teaching. We seek candidates who are outstanding researchers, and who are enthusiastic about mentoring graduate and undergraduate students and involving Master’s students in their research. Faculty members with funded research programs typically teach two courses per semester.

SFSU, a member of the California State University system, serves a diverse student body of 30,000 students. The University seeks to promote appreciation of scholarship, freedom, and human diversity through excellence in instruction and intellectual accomplishment. SFSU faculty are expected to be effective teachers and to demonstrate professional achievement through research, scholarship, and/or creative work.

A Ph.D. in physics and postdoctoral experience are required. Applications must be received by 3 December 2010. Please send curriculum vitae, publication list, statement of research and teaching interests to the Theoretical Physics Search Committee, Physics and Astronomy Dept., SFSU, 1600 Holloway Ave., San Francisco, CA 94132. In addition, please arrange to have three letters of reference sent to the same address. For more information, please contact the chair of the search committee, Maarten Golterman, at . SFSU is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer; we strongly encourage applications from women and minorities.
