3 TT Physics positions at UC Berkeley

The Physics Department of the University of California, Berkeley intends to make three faculty appointments effective July 1, 2013. We are interested in candidates in the following areas: Astrophysics/Astroparticle Experiment; Theoretical Particle Physics; Condensed Matter Theory/Computational Materials Physics. Appointments are intended to be at assistant professor level, though an associate or full professor appointment is possible in the Condensed Matter Theory/ Computational Materials Physics search. A Ph.D. or equivalent in Physics (or a Physics related discipline) is required at time of application. The department seeks candidates whose research, teaching, or service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in higher education.

A curriculum vitae, bibliography, statement of research interests, statement of teaching philosophy, and a list of at least 3 references (names and complete addresses including email) are required for consideration. For applicants at the assistant professor level, the candidate should ask these references to supply letters through the online application system. All letters will be treated as confidential per University of California policy and California state law. Please refer potential referees, including when letters are provided via a third party (i.e., dossier service or career center), to the UC Berkeley statement of confidentiality: http://apo.chance.berkeley.edu/evalltr.html. For applicants who wish only to be considered at the associate or full professor level, it is sufficient to provide names and addresses in the initial application; the search committee will contact these references for letters only after the applicant is selected for further consideration.

Online applications are strongly preferred. The following URL links will provide you with instructions and allow you to self-register, upload PDF’s, and request your letters of reference:
