Faculty Position in Experimental or Theoretical Physics

Cornell University Tenure Track Assistant Professor Position in Experimental Or Theoretical Physics

The Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics (LASSP) at Cornell University expects to make a faculty appointment in experimental or theoretical physics, to begin July 1, 2016. We encourage applications in cold atom physics, biophysics, hard and soft condensed matter physics, quantum materials, statistical mechanics, x-ray physics and related areas that utilize the experimental and theoretical techniques of condensed matter physics. The search will focus at the assistant professor level, although more senior candidates may be considered.  Candidates must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field, must have demonstrated an ability to conduct outstanding research, and show promise for excellent teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Please send the application, including a curriculum vitae, a publication list, and a statement of teaching and research interests to: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/5885.  Applicants should arrange to have three letters of reference sent to the same website.

Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University’s heritage. We’re an employer and educator recognized for valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities. We actively encourage applications of women, persons of color, and persons with disabilities. Although our interview process has begun, we will continue to consider all complete applications by December 31, 2015.    2015 Faculty Announcement PDF

Temporary Full and Part-time Teaching Positions in Physics

The Department of Physics at Cornell University wishes to identify qualified candidates for temporary full and part-time teaching positions. Most positions involve discussion section and laboratory instruction in one of our introductory or intermediate level physics courses, and may vary in complexity, responsibility and scope. These short term, non-tenure track positions are often available for the fall, spring and/or summer semesters. Preference will be given to candidates with an advanced degree in physics or a related field, and who have demonstrated excellence in teaching in a university setting. Positions may also be available for candidates with a Bachelors degree in physics who have strong teaching credentials. Please send a CV or resume and two teaching references to:

Chair, Department of Physics
Cornell University
109 Clark Hall
Ithaca, NY 14853-2501

Application materials may also be sent by fax to: (607) 255-2643. Applications will be reviewed by the Physics Department and when temporary teaching positions arise, qualified candidates identified through this search will be contacted.
