Faculty Position

High Energy Theoretical Physicist

Department of Physics University of California, Davis

The Department of Physics at the University of California at Davis invites applications for a faculty position in theoretical high energy physics. Appointment at any level is possible depending upon qualifications and experience. The appointment will be directed towards the pursuit of the exciting new ideas and challenges associated with the interface between formal theory and phenomenology. Priority will be given to candidates with recognized leadership in this area and the ability to help implement and lead the High Energy Frontier Theory Initiative (HEFTI). The successful candidate should also have a strong interest in interpreting new phenomena as the relevant experimental data become available from the Tevatron and, especially, the LHC. Interaction and overlap with the particle cosmology group is anticipated. A formal High Energy Frontier Theory Institute is being planned.

The existing high energy group consists of six theoretical and eight experimental faculty. The theorists have a broad spectrum of interests including supercollider physics and phenomenology, supersymmetric modeling and superstring phenomenology, Higgs physics, brane models, lattice QCD, weak-interaction and heavy quark physics, solvable models, and quantum gravity. The experimentalists have major efforts at Fermilab and are active members of the LHC CMS collaboration.

The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in physics or the equivalent and be expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

This position is open until filled; but to assure first round consideration, applications should be received no later than December 5, 2005. The targeted starting date for appointment is July 1, 2006. To initiate the application process, please mail your curriculum vitae, publication list, research statement, and the names (including address, e-mail, fax, and phone number) of three or more references to:
