Assistant Professorship in Particle-Astrophysics Theory

The Department of Physics at Arizona State University (ASU) seeks candidates for a tenure track assistant professorship in particle-astrophysics theory and related areas starting August 2007. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related discipline by time of appointment, a strong demonstrated research history in these areas of theoretical physics, the potential to attract external funding, and a commitment to effective teaching. The initial appointment will be a cooperative fellowship with the RIKEN BNL Research Center (RBRC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) for a period of up to five years. During this period the faculty member will spend about half time at ASU and the remaining time at RBRC.

The Department of Physics has completed an extensive strategic planning initiative in which theoretical particle-astrophysics is identified as an area of emphasis for the development of significant expertise. We are especially interested in candidates who both complement and extend our current particle physics theory research efforts. This position must overlap some regime of interest to RBRC, from QCD to the TeV scale.

Applicants must submit a curriculum vitae, publication list, and a statement describing their current and future research interests, and arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation sent on their behalf. Initial review of applications will begin after April 15, 2007, and if not filled will continue every two weeks until the search is closed.

Application materials and reference letters may be submitted to:
