Faculty Position Posting for Condensed Matter Theory

MSU Global Impact Initiative Logo

The Department of Physics & Astronomy invites applications from outstanding candidates for a junior tenure-track faculty position at Michigan State University in the area of condensed matter theory with emphasis in ultrafast sciences.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: physics of collective excitations and emergent quantum phenomena in solids, including low-dimensional systems such as 2D materials; electron and spin quantum dynamics and control; light-induced phase transitions, and non- perturbative light-matter coupling.

We are looking for candidates with an interest in applying advanced theoretical tools and large-scale computing to solve cutting-edge scientific problems in the broad domain of ultrafast sciences. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: theory and control of ultrafast dynamics; non-equilibrium many body physics; ab initio computation of fundamental optical and electronic properties.

Suitable candidates may have partial appointments in the Department of Chemistry or in the new Department of Computational Mathematics Science and Engineering. This position is listed on the MSU Applicant Page (https://jobs.msu.edu), posting #2107.

Applications should be uploaded to MSU’s online job application site, https://jobs.msu.edu, and should include:

  1. a cover letter,
  2. CV,
  3. statement of research plans,
  4. a one-page teaching statement, and
  5. the name, telephone, address, and email of three references, all included in a single pdf file.

The selection process will begin on December 10, 2015, and review of applications will continue until the position is filled.

Questions regarding this position may be directed to: Prof. Carlo Piermarocchi (piermaro@msu.edu).
