The Nuclear Theory Group at the University of Washington invites applications for a full-time Research Assistant Professor in theoretical nuclear physics for an anticipated appointment beginning in 2021. This is a full-time, 12-month, non-tenure track position with a 3-year appointment, renewable for up to 5 years total depending on performance and funding.
Although the candidate will be primarily engaged in research activities, all University of Washington faculty may engage in teaching, research and service.
Current group research interests include QCD, many-body theory, nuclear reactions at high and low energies, weak interactions and symmetries, effective field theory, lattice QCD, nuclear astrophysics, nuclear structure, EIC physics, and FRIB physics. https://phys.washington.edu/fields/nuclear-theory
Applicants should have a PhD (or foreign equivalent) in theoretical nuclear physics, broadly defined, post-doctoral experience of at least 12 months, a documented record of research achievements, and an established strong record of publications.
Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a research statement, and three letters of reference. The group values contributions to diversity, equity and inclusion in STEM fields, and to outreach; these can be described in the cover letter. Priority will be given to applications received before January 18, 2021. The search will continue until the position is filled. If interested please apply, a previous application to a similar position at the Institute for Nuclear Theory is not sufficient. Any questions may be directed to Professor Aurel Bulgac at email@example.com .
