Tenure-Track Faculty Applied Physics
The School of Applied and Engineering Physics at Cornell University is seeking applications for a tenured or tenure-track faculty position. Candidates must be able to demonstrate the ability to develop a highly successful and internationally recognized independent research program, and to participate effectively in the teaching of the applied physics curriculum at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Research areas of interest include biophysics and biotechnology, optics and photonics, nanostructure science and technology, novel instrumentation methods, renewable energy, and materials physics. Applications in computational physics should demonstrate overlap with current experimental efforts on campus. Prospective candidates who wish to pursue interdisciplinary research efforts are strongly encouraged to apply. The successful applicant can expect a highly competitive level of support for the start-up of his/her research program. Considerable institutional resources are available at Cornell that can strengthen this research program and support interdisciplinary and collaborative research ventures. The successful candidate can expect to benefit from association with one or more of Cornell's interdisciplinary research centers, national facilities, and national resources, listed at https://www.engineering.cornell.edu/research-and-faculty/centers-and-facilities.
Postdoctoral experience is preferred. However, for exceptional candidates who are nearing the completion of their PhD we can provide additional support in the form of a bridging fellowship for postdoctoral training prior to the start of the faculty position. Members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.
